Exclamation getting back into rc

So i am trying to get back into rc cars. i used to have a nitro tmaxx but ive moved back to civilization, i dont want a nitro just yet as im not ready for the problems i delt with for my old truck. i want a electric car i can use for drifting and racing if possible. i NEED to stay under $275 as im not made of money and have been saving for this. i need you all to help me out with models. i need somthing fast and have been looking into a "hpi sprint 2 drift". its either this or airsoft and this seems to be a better investment. and one last thing if anyone knows of clubs or groups for people in the kirkland, redmond, bellvue areas of washington that could come in handy thank you


i would like a rtr

The RTR TC4 is good and so is the RTR Cyclone S.

The 2007 OnRoad Nationals were held in Seattle, Washington a few weeks ago at Seattle Indoor Raceway. I am sure that they will be able to help you out with any questions that you may have.

Here is their link.

I am not sure of the price but Losi either has out or will be releasing an RTR Drift kit, it is based on the XXX-S (I think) I will dig up the thread and post it

Found it http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...ght=losi+drift and it is out. It is running a little more than your set price (about $369), but it has a great radio, servo, and esc. I live in WA as well I run at Seattle Indoor Raceway in Kent/Renton if you come down there I am sure Doug can order you whatever you need

I run an HPI sprint RTR that I picked up off ebay real cheap. I have upgraded the hell out of it so it is no where close to stock. I race with guys that have the TC4 and XRay T2 most of those guys are breaking parts like crazy and I have yet to break a c-hub, steering knuckle, or suspension arm. I do it mostly for fun and the Sprint parts are 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of the 2 models I listed above. Get a good motor a few different sets of gears and you will be ready to have some fun.

Eaither a RTR tc4, a xxx-s, or a HOt Bodies cyclone Sport, would be a good buy for the money.
