easier than a TC IMO. Carpet/asphault friendly car, though you want minimium for bumps on the asphault.
If you are really interested you need to read through the CRC and Pan Car threads...

You looking at 200mm or 235mm?

The 200mm will be better at the lower speeds typical for a WGT class, while 235mm is the "go fast" width. Get in on the pan car threads and ask away, way more helpful than me.

Handling on 2wd will be a bit tricky for ya' with either 200/235mm compared to a TC... make ya' a better driver overall though (IMO)

Wrenching will be WAY easier AND cheaper w/ this car, hands down.

I just started racing 1/12 and compared to the 1/10 its a lot more fun and cheaper you dont need the latest kit's to be competitive and the handling in these cars are amazing.

serpent s120 used $170
battery new $70
servo used $15
set of tires new $24
novak gtx used $20
body new $15
19t motor $30
receiver i had one alredy.

Total of $344 thats how much i spent compared to my xray 009 which that along was $500.
