I am thinking the Kyosho for parts availabilty plus it is a 1/8th scale. Any ideas? I am looking for speed/durability/upgradability and FUN!
Kyosho GT2 all the way. I think the Schumacher is really cool. But for parts availability/cost, driveability, durability, and fun factor. You will have a VERY hard time beating what the GT2 Race Spec delivers for a on-road RTR. Big, fast, easy to drive, easy to work on, strong plastics and metals, and parts are available/cheaper.
Get it. Get a handle on it. Then race it.
Bashing is fun, but doesn't compare to getting on a track!
