Default Need some help

If I have the budget for the Xray T3 12, should I get it even though I'm new to onroad racing not new to rc. Or should I still start on some less advanced and work my way up. Plan on racing, looks like the tracks closer to me are mostly indoor carpet (Fastlane, Prolevelrc(Drew Ellis), and theirs a track in Jonesboro, AR. I will though probably practice alot with cones at the highschool parking lot. Thanks for your help guys and gals.

Hi, If you have the budget definitely go with the X-Ray. That way you don't have to spend the money in upgrading a cheaper car. Regards

If you plan to race .. I am a firm believer that new racers need a durable car. Nothing is more fustrating then breaking parts and not finishing races. With that said you probably won't find a car more durable than the Xray. It will serve you well from beginner to pro. If you have the budget, you won't be dissapointed.

I just want to know what is the most popular tc at your local track? If it's xray then you are golden. Support from friends is worth a lot. If every one is running something else then you might want to consider the track favorite instead.

Yeah I get where your coming from. I just haven't been out to any of the tracks. I was wanting to get a car put together first, seeing how all three tracks are about 4 hours away.

yea a nobrainer.... xray, box setup is a little back happy so leave two inside screws out of the top deck... you should be golden..... get some rear belts (they dont go often) but just to be sure..... you wont need anything else after that...

Considering that you are that far from any tracks and that you seem to really like the X-Ray, I would just roll with it. You will love the kit. Get some spares of the breakables and you will be alright.
