Several sets of the correct tires for your application/surface are very important. Body choice is also important depending on application. Lipo batteries and compatible charger, along with a sensored, brushless motor and ESC combo would be great. Although initially expensive, they will provide you with the most amount of run time with the least amount of maintenance...


Do you plan to race the car? Carpet or asphalt?

If you are a novice driver or someone who just wants to pursue electric TC lightly, take a look at the T2R Pro. It is based off of the 009 but in lieu of the graphite is made of fiberglass among a few other minor component changes. However, the car itself is very much a T2 009.

You don't need to spend a lot of money for the "best of the best". Do your research and always work on your most valuable investment - yourself - through practice time and experience. Chances are, if you are a newcomer, you won't really fell the differences between a $300 car and a $450 car anyway

A good set of battery packs is essential. I like the SMC packs. The 4600's work good for my 4 cell 12th scale and the 4000 Li-Po works good for my touring car.
Touring cars in general don't have alot of room to put all of your electronics in. I would suggest getting a Low-Profile servo, and a micro reciever. This will leave you with a bit of room to put balancing weight, run a larger speed control, or tuck wires.

Winning is not about having the right equipment as much as it is about driving skill and experience!

Well find out the rules first. Then people can make suggestions for you like batteries and motors. No sense in buying a 21.5 if it's a 17.5 class.... etc, etc. Best thing to do is actually go to a race and see what everyone is running. Talk to the locals. The more you know, the better prepared you will be and the better your money will be spent.

I would suggest the Tekin RS speed control for your brushless motor. It is small and programable. It also has more punch than some other brands that I have run.

I have only run Novak brushless motors but I am sure there are others that are good. You might actually start out with a 17.5 motor as it will be easier to drive than a 13.5. Once you can run a 5 minute heat without hitting any boards then think about a faster motor.

I would higly recommend LiPo batteries for you car. I actually race with just ONE Thunder Power 5000 and I just recharge it after every round. Get a good charger, Thunder Power makes one, but there are others. If you are going to get a good car like an x-ray, get good stuff to go in the car.

Tires are very important. Jaco greens are popular for indoor carpet racing and outdoor asphalt up to about 70 degrees. As it gets hotter you go to harder tires (jaco blue, then jaco orange). Tires are important, find out what the local guys are running.

Get the xxx main chassis set-up book and study it. http://www.xxxmain.com/bookz.shtml

Remember to have fun, don't worry about going pro. That will happen if it is ment to be.

I have the t2 008 and love the Speedpassion 13.5 and speedpassion GT 2.0 combination... speedpassion is very agressive (punchy) i have also ran the orion 13.5 and love it also (a little more smoother)

I love my Sorex 28 's the best... I was running the jaco greens but i had to adjust the camber to get them to hook up and i dont like having to put my car on the setup board just for tires... i have also run the much more tires.. but the rims crack much to easy.

I am running the Spektrum dx3s and love it... i know a few people with the Furaba 4pk and they love it as well.

Battery.. I have SMC and Trinity Intellect Lipos... i love them both and hvent had any issues with them.

hope this helps!

If the class above novice is a 13.5 class... definitly start out with a 13.5, that way as you improve and are forced to move up a class, you already have a competative level motor. If you start out with a 17.5 just for novice, you will have to buy a second motor and you wont use your original at all.
