As far is equipment I know I will need set up board , charger/discharger anything else you all can think off ?
With that one more question when it comes to foam tires I have noticed that drivers cut them a lot just to race why is that ? those things are so expansive .
Lots of good info here:

Also, running foam tires "out of the package" would seem like you get more runs for your money, but thicker foam chunks easier, effectively reducing the number of runs you get out of a set of foam tires. A "false economy". A lot of drivers start them out about 57.5 - 58 mm. Plus, a lot of pros get them for free, or 50 - 75% off, so they are looking for the most performance. Thinner foam is more consistent, and faster. To a point, then the handling is inconsistent.

it depend on what class you want to race.

money is not the key to win, the weight and balance is!


I use mini servo to save weight on the front end, it makes a huge difference.

Get what you can get with a good deal or part supports. Tamiya TRF415/416, Corally RDX, Xray T2, Hot Bodies Cyclone World Edition are very good chassises.

For lower end: I saw TB-02 for $80 on the ebay good car for beginner, too. HB/HPI Cyclone (plastic chassis) is very good also.

ESC and Motor, must ask your track buddies, Novak, LRP, GM, Orion etc... they all good. I would like to go bushless myself

Servo: Futaba 9550 is very pouplar. new model is 9551, almost the same.

Radio: get a FM 75Mhz or 2.4Ghz, any brand is fine
