I have been messing with electric off-road for a while. I want to get into on-road....for fun! Does any manufacturer make an RTR model with a brushless sytem?

I started out with RTR some years ago; but, "graduated" from it to kits within 3 months.

If you are already in r/c racing and have some experience, I would suggest buying a new kit. So, you can build and tailor it to YOUR needs. Building is half the fun for many of us.

Another option is to buy a complete used car locally.

Great that you are keeping it fun!

Ok...just for some parkinglot fun...what would be the most economical method for a BL situation?? Should I get some kind of "roller" and but the motor from there? Or should I buy the RTR HPI??

I had the hpi sprint 2 rtr not the brushless but put in a mamba 5700 brushless in,the car with a lipo was a great parking lot basher,only thing was it'll chew rear belts to shreads caused by pebbles getting caught in between the belts and rear cover and inside of rear bulkhead,i fixed that issue dremmeling out the rear gear cover or what ever was super close to the rear belts so that any pebbles would pass thru instead of getting wedged in between belt and rear parts.I also had issues with grease coming out of the front pully gear tranny and would build up in between the teeth on the pully and cause a lot of vibration so every now and then i would just take a small flat head and scrape it out,also the front end had a ton of play in the tires like you needed to tighten the axel nuts down and it also had way to much steering slop.

if you find a decent used car for sale, you can pick up a new novak havoc system in most motor combinations (10.5, 13.5, 17.5 21.5) for about $150.
