are you sure your really wanting alum. hop-ups since this will make your car heavier thus slower speeds.

whats your budget for an car?

2 wd or 4 wd?

race or bash?

Ok sorry for not specifying what exactly i was looking for. as for the aluminum hopups i guess i can skip that.

I am looking for a parking lot car not looking to race. basicly im looking for a fast bash car. im not sure whats faster 2w or 4w? $1500 budget but id def want to stay under that.

Another thing with the Alum. parts is that there more expensive then the plastic parts and much heavier.

for me these are what I would choose from since the parts will be easy to find.

LIST: (from towerhobbies)

HPI sprint 2 Flux........$314.99 (brushless)
AE TC4 ............$266.97
AE TC5 kit..........$359.99 (add your own electronics)
