Here is a link to the forum for the 417.
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...ya-trf417.html

And yes that may be a bit too much to spend for a newbie. You might also want to look at a Tamiya TA-05 IFS. Less expensive but still a very good car to race, if that is want you are looking to do.

I'll tell you from first hand experiance, if you're getting into this hobby you might as well take the plunge. Most of the newest cars are going to be expensive, or at the vary least you can get a used car. But I suggest you get a similar car that other people are driving. It makes car setups and parts easier in the long run.

I think he is referring to you failing at finding the proper thread to post in.
