ok, looking and researching on the internet, do you think it's worth getting a hpi sprint 2 flux? I would get one but i don't know which site is trustworthy and which aren't. Can anyone tell me a really trustworthy site that they've used from the past and that ships to Australia , Brisbane? thanks

Ever thought of M'Chassis?

Now I just go to the track with 2 x 4200mAH Lipo packs, and easily gets 2 x >35 minutes of solid bashing sessions. I don't even need to bring my charger along, though I do...
On and off I do bash with nitros, but they usually have their engine died before I dump my battery.

Australia has a very good Mini thread:

Now sure where about was that, but the infos was top notch!!

Ths Sprint 2 is a very good chassis, don't waste money on a Tamiya M chassis, it's not even in the same league.

As I said before just start with the regular Sprint 2 RTR if you can't afford the Flux. All you need is battery and charger. It's more than enough for a beginner. Later when you want more performance just add a brushless setup. The chassis is brushless ready out of the box. You could also buy many different bodies to fit the car.

Tower Hobbies is a VERY good place to buy stuff. They've been in business for a very long time and is a very big company with a big selection of parts/kits. They ship globally including Australia. I've purchased over $2000 worth of RC stuff from them over the years. They're very reliable.
