Paz, that had to be an awesome sight.... That was the second time I had gone airborn too....


Sonic.... Go visit your LHS's first and see what they carry parts for.... You really can't go wrong with any of the cars out there, they are all that good....

You don't need an 8 turn motor to play in a parking lot, nor anything more less than a 19 turn either.... Any 19 turn or 27 turn will give you good performance in a TC.... If you have the money I'd get a Brushless... The Novak SS is quick enough to hol it's own against an RTR NTC3, I know I raced one with my SS powered car...


The things I would have is a good selection of pinion gears... 30-80 weight shock oils and springs.....

For parking lots I have very good luck with the HPI Belted X Patterns.... They aren't a race tire, but the tread seems to work well enough on unprepared surfaces.... Put some Yok Or HPI Medium inserts in tham and you're good to go.... Don't waste your money on Race tires that will deteriorate as they go through heat cycles....

Let us know what car you decide on and I think we can better help you from there.....

Either get a TC3 or TC4.... Will you notice a difference between the 3 and 4, Nope....

You'll need nothing for the car but electronics.... The Novak GTX looks great and you can run just about any motor you want.... A Chamelion 2 or Reedy Quad Mag will do nicely.... The Chamelion needs to be geared about 4 teeth lower than the QM though....

Electric touring cars are way faster then nitro,any top end touring car with a 19T in it can beat a nitro

Hey dude if you really want to go fast on a low budget get a Duratrax Delphi,they go so friggin fast with a good motor in them and they come out of the box ready to do 33mph and thats just with the crap Photon Motor
