Default Help please

Hi,

I'm looking at getting my first kit but I have no idea where to start looking, let alone what I should be looking for.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please

Cheers

HERE is a list of kits I would recommend.
As well as a lot of advice on tuning, and assembly.

Do you plan to race, or bash ?

Is there a local track nearby, might be a good idea to seek out a track to find out what is popular there, doing a little reconnaissance first could save some $$.

Not planning on racing but maybe at some point. There's a track not far from me with a Tarmac course and an off road so there's a mix of cars up there

It's my first build so looking for something fairly simple and not too pricey. So far I'm looking at a tamiya mo3 mini kit at the moment. Sound like a good idea? Or should I look at something else?

Minis' are popular everywhere.
That's a great car to start out with.
