Default Maybe want to start onroad

So the track i drive 1/10scale electric off road has opened up a onroad carpet track. I decided to go and check it out while i was waiting for my batterys to charge. the track looks pretty nice and i kinda wanted to try it out onroad. i have never raced on road. i have had a few onroad cars but they where not set up for track just drift.

Since i dont know if i really want to get really into it i dont want to spend a lot of money on car. I already have lipos that i can run in it and already have a simple 19t brushed setup. so really all i need is a roller

What do you think would be the best car for not a whole lot of money that could get me started.

thanks

Hmmmm....are you talking about OCRC? If so, please find me at the track and I would be happy to let you try my car (rubber tire sedan). That's the best way to get a feel of what it's like; just by trying someone else's.

Dude the cheapest way is to go World GT get yourself a pan car, I'll help you out if you get a crc gen x 10. Not much to it and you would help get 1/10 pan car class going. I'll be there on Saturday and would let you check out my pan car. much cheaper than a touring though I have one but not for carpet.
