Default Need your help!! *plz look*

ok so i want an RC car just to drive around up and down the street and in parking lots, but then again that could be boring. I was wondering if getting like a buggy would be better since then if i get bored i can take it off the road and stuff. I really want to get an on-road but not into racing right now jsut to mess around.

So is it worth it to get an on-road or to go with a buggy and use it for both?

This is a good statement. If you want an onroad then I would get that. Setup a course is a parking lot to run. Change the way the course it is laid out often. Try drifting around the course to change things up. If you buddys are running either get them together for a little race. Maybe try to get something your buddies have. This will be more fun to keep things more equal. See what your lhs keeps in stock more. Just get what you truly want & try loads of different ideas.

Get whatever your local hobby shop stocks parts for. If you break (and everyone breaks) then your out of luck for the day unless your lhs has it in stock.

if u are new. i recommend a 1/8 nitro buggy... can bash on street and in park... they are also easier to wrok on and learn than a 1/10 nitro on road... coz there is no need to worry about belts and also more bigger and easier for your hands...

try a rtr hyper 7

Check out my Bandit. It was a cheap, off-road buggy, now it's an expenive on-road pavement pounder. The track I race at is all on-road, but the classes allow anything from an E-MAXX, to Stampede's run. The first official day of racing, there were 8 Pro-Stock Stampede races, it won 7. All I need to do to run it off road again, would be swap the front and rear tires with the Pro-Line spares I have, and tweak the setup a bit. An off-road car can be more easily converted to on-road, than an on-road car to an off-road one. If that made sense.
