Hi guys, new to the forum but not new to rc. I started with an evader ext back in march and I have been to lir about 10 times, only raced twice though. During the summer when the gas was really priced high my mom wouldnt take me anymore so i got into bashing. Now I want to race again. I was wondering if I could get some recomendations. I usually saw mostly associated at the track but some losi. I think I want a buggy so either a losi xxx-cr or the b4, if I get a truck I will get the T4. I also have a castle creations sidewinder esc and 4600kv bl motor I could use in it until I get a sensored system. Also what transmitters are you guys using? I like the futaba fasst 3pm 2.4ghz but its pricy, spektrum looks good but I have heard mixed review. Please give me some insight.btw Im James and im 13, probaly have seen me around march april.lol. thanks in advance for the help.

as far as the buggy goes thier are 3 choices the kyosho rb5 the associated b4 and losi xxx-cr. the associated has alot of steering and is probly the best out of the box. the kyosho is well balenced steering and traction but need a bunch of mods to get it where it really needs to be. then the losi lots of bite and traction and some of the fastest guys at lir run them. personally i would get a b4 team edition out the box its the best deal. now for a radio look for a m11 i would try to get one with out the dss 2.4 gig and buy the stock one then get the spectrum pro seperate. if you're not looking to spend that much at first look at just the stock m11 and worry about getting spectum down the road. doesnt much matter for now cause everyone pretty much has spectrum and you shouldent interfere with many people. now for the truck i dont know if i'd buy one yet cause not many people run truck. although we started running the traxxas slash spec class wich is alot of fun. my suggestion to you is go down to the track and ask rob these ?s he will be able to get you pointed in the right direction also get you whatever car and parts you need... hope to see at the track soon running whatever car and radio you have chosen . good luck

ok great thanks! I wont be ther until after christmas but I think I will be asking for the b4 team kit(not factoy team)isnt the m11 like almost 300 not spectrum? I could get a jr xr2i on ebay for cheap probaly. I also need some batts.my bashing packs are sub-par as far as racing goes. For now I think I will get spc ener-g 4600 matched packs. You have an rb5 right? I think I might have seen you once, i went to practice on a sunday in july I think, idk but if it was you, you were really good. Thanks for all your help.

To be honest with you, if your set on the kit version of the B4, there really is no benefit of choosing the team version over the factory team. For the few dollars extra, you get loads of upgrades that you are definitely going to want down the road. And as far as the M11 goes, the price has went down and now the Airtronics 2.4 version is $300.

Like Gweed said, just stop down by the shop when you get a chance and we will steer you in the right direction.

Yeah but the problem is my mom wont let me go over $300 for all my christmas gifts so I have to get the b4 team kit and maybe a spektrum dx3.0.also I cant just stop by, its enough of a challange just to get my mom to take me to actually race or practiceI will have money after chritmas so maybe i will buy the ft b4 and not ask for it. Can I use a sidewinder 4600 combo untill i get a sensored system or do you guys strictly go by ROAR rules? i only raced my evader brushed

dude i have the same problem wit my mom not wanting me to spend $$$
best bet buy the best of the best and neva look back if ur planning on being a hardcore racer down there alot practicing and racing get the b4 factory team edition. as far as your sidewinder setup you will ether have to race mod or sportzman. i say sell the sidewider and get a sphere or gtb esc with a 10.5 motor.
