Default WANTED: VTA Cars

Hey I'm looking for a VTA car some what cheap. I'm new to it so it would be nice if it could be race ready. Or almost ready to run. Does anyone have one they want to sell?

If VTA allows the use of a JL10E - that would be a option. The price point on this car is great - I've seen it as low as $114. I have mine set-up for asphalt and it drives pretty good. It can even handle a 5700KV setup as well (that's what I have in it right now), but I have seen it running a Duo2 spec motor just fine. The only issue would be setup tips are not as abundant as other TCs
likes the oldskool RC action...

Have a little patience. There are always VTA cars available. But all you really need is a good used TC with a rubber tire setup. You can pick out a legal shell and some wheels and tires yourself. If you happen to suck at gluing tires then you can get a racer or sometimes the local shop to help you.

Stick to the main VTA thread, and have a look at the official rules for a list of legal shells and powertrain options.
