No, no, no get a drag car and go RC drag racing~! it's WAY more fun.


Go to my web site (TimSmithRacing.com) or to one or the few organizations to find tracks near you. (IMDRA, MHRA, IRC) Google is your friend~!

I would go for the TA05v2. It's a great club race car, well built, quick and strong. It's also very popular for Drift so it will cover both things you want to do.

+1 on the TAO5v2

The HPI sucks up rocks like a vaccum and shreds belts.

BTW

HPI is out of stock on the smaller belt right now.

+1 on the Tamiya. I don't have one but I've raced against enough to know they are a brilliant reliable club car. Its an up to date car, both of the others are old car designs. Like someone else says as well, the tub chassis is gonna be great for what you want to use the car for.
