look for something that you can source spare parts for easily. if you are in auckland sgo visit stephen at speedi models. am sure the 3 racing chassis will be ok to start with

the team associated gear looks pretty good. tc5 and the new tc6. parts are super easy to find and plenty of dudes around with good setups they can share. the north harbour rc club is based up at albany stadium with the best rc track in the country. head up there are talk to the guys. i am sure they will be friendly enough.

That is a good chassis, and its also a good price when you factor in all those spares you are getting as well.

I had one of these going in 13.5 for a while and its ok. Not great.

I think a much better deal at the moment is to pick up an old Yokomo BD.
Its a old car but still performs, and ive seen a few on trademe recently for around 200 with a tonne of spares.

Good luck.
