Default Total and complete Noob

Hey all, total newbie here when it comes to the RC world. Im a big car guy but never got into RC's until now. I've been playing around on a 1:10 HPI E10 Drift little car for a while now and love it. Its a complete starter RC as you guys are probably all aware, but its super awsome to me. Anyways, just wanted to say hey, and wonder if there were any mods for this little toy of mine. I'll post some pics, but you've probably all see it before, its an AE86.

to be honest, its not worth upgrading the E10.

maybe replace the bush bearings, with ball bearings, and leave it at that.

aluminium parts look nice, but I don't think they're worth the money, and the E10 won't handle a brushless motor and esc without upgrading lots.

+1. I know 2 people who have had them and they are best left standard, just upgrade the bearings to make the transmission more durable and enjoy the car for what it is.

if you still like the hobby in years to come, get a different chassis that is more of a pro level deal.

Hope that helps
