My opinion is that its better to by a mid lever r/c car like xray t2pro which it will handle like the "expensive" T2 but its alot better from a basic electric like TT-01.

Me i use both electric and nitro powered cars ( Team magic E4 - G4 )

Electric as everyone says is easier to maintained , cleaner , quieter and going faster cheaper than a nitro car but more expensive to buy them in the beginning .
Nitros for me , i like the noise that the make , cheaper to start , but its alot dirtier , and more expensive to use ( nitro fuel , tires ) . Also when you are going to have to maintain the nitro engine its quite expensive and if you need a motor replacement alot more expensive to buy a normal engine comparing to the fastest motor.

nitro my cost less to get in but the maintenance is much more. If you are racing the cost of nitro is much more then electric. Brushless with lipo has made electric so much cheaper and FASTER!!

Top electric
Xray
Corally
Losi

Lipos are still considered expensive and run-time is also limited IMO but I still prefer EP over GP.

wow, I don't see how Lipos are limited? They are like 1000 times better then the old 6 cells. Not sure why pay for a battery that you have to assemble or buy a battery that last so much longer and don't have to deal with temp. and only charging 3 times Max.?

Possibly the AE TC4 RTR, which I think comes with a 17t brushed motor.
I had a TT01 I've never liked the fact the screws keep coming out, I broke mine and never bothered to fix it.

Overgearing it with a peaked out 4600nimh pack, and slamming it sideways at full speed into a curb doesn't help much. But it was good fun getting it 3ft into the air.

All cars break, some more so then others.

I think it due to the fact I accidently stripped the threads and I got the car 2nd hand.
