Ted, I'm assuming you already have a radio, servo, receiver.

Before we get into what car, do you have any lipo batteries yet and/or lipo charger?

I watched it but I wouldnt call it much of a race. Letting somebody go by you so they can win a championship so that maybe they will hire you next year (Glock) is not exactly what I call racing.

F1 championships seem to be orchestrated more than they are won.

Thats why I've switched to NASCAR with races and championships that are won with performance, - not by having other drivers and teams to pull off the road for you.

if you would have actually been watching the race.. you would know that glock almost cost him the championship and the reason he got pasted in the last turn by about 5 guys is because he was on dry tires...

A lot of McLaren fans feel that way too, but, I call them like I see them.

I'm trying to like F1 but it collapsed under the weight of itself years ago.

Nothing happens when they race the cars. Only 4-5 cars can manage to stay on the lead lap and the leader is always half a mile ahead.

Its boring as hell, but to its credit, they have managed to keep the races mercifully short.

Ted, With your budget, I would get a TC5. They are really good and have excellent support. And either the Novak or Sphere 13.5 motor/esc systems.

If you have anything left to spend - Lipos & charger will save you money over the long run.

Cow-tipper...we'll see how interesting f-1 is next year when the cars sound like our touring cars going around the track!! I like when then win they shake up a Champagne bottle a squirt over the second and third place driver much like what they did to their boyfriends the night before! Eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww
