Default Gymkhana RC!

Myself and another buddy have been messing around with our Tamiya Rally cars and trying our hand at a little RC Gymkhana. It's a total blast!
Anyone dabbled in this yet? I'd like to see some examples of cars people have completed, or just to throw ideas around. Thanks!!!!

$300.00 for a 1/16th scale car is a bit out of my price range lol.
It's hard to spend that kind of money on a basher

It's not bad with Tower's promo codes. Gets you another $50 off that price, plus free shipping. And, if you already have a Tx/Rx handy you can sell off the stock equipment for around $60.

im just now getting back into rc cars but back when i raced traxxas was basically a beginner proof rustler and the e/t maxx trucks
all these crazy slashes and stuff.. make me think they stepped it up? if so 300 doesnt sound too bad. but im sure you can use a tamiya for less than 200 and build around that

I actually checked one of the Ken Block cars at a hobby shop last week, and it's really well put together. I almost bought one, but I have so many cars laying around at home, it was just cheaper to build one from spares. I just wish they made a 1/10th version.
