Default purchasing on road electric 1/10 car HELP!

Hey Guys

I have never really looked at the electric cars before but it seems that there are more restrictions around for nitro cars in regards to tracks. Therefore i want to purchase an electric car that i can use at my local track for a bit of fun and mabey try out a bit of racing, which i have not done before.

So what i am really asking is what would be the best eletric 1/10 on road car to buy for a beginner and whilst i dont want to go crazy and spend a lot i still want a decent car that i can upgrade mabey in the future.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

cheers

xray t2 0092nd hand imho... all up about $500 setup rtr with top shelf gear should be easily achieveable with a charger + batteries

Ryan
edit: i might post my justifaction before the arguments begin... firstly you will never have to upgrade it, and if it is maitained somewhat reguarly it will last you a long time. 2ndly they are bloody strong (mine got runover so trust me!), 3rdly they are abundant with all the serious racers switching to the latest and greatest? t3... forthly it will hold resell value better than most cars imo.

im impressed with my $250 outlay for the chassis thats for sure.

Go down to your local track and talk to the people who race there. Take a notepad & pen and ask heaps of questions. You will be bombarded with lots of info .

Buy a car that the racers use, the bonus is they can help you set it up and also help with parts (if you need them).

The car you have noted above is for bashing around in the carpark.
