The Smartech cars look like an inexpensive way toget into the hobby, but I think you'll find parts support is questionable at best.

I'd recommend sticking with more readily available RTR cars like those from HPI,Associated, Losi, Tamiya, etc...

From my experience with Smartech I have not been impressed. I see people who bring them in to the LHS I work at looking for parts and they are almost carbon coppies of some other cars and trucks that were on the market 4-5 years ago. Also, the stuff I saw from them at the hobby expo was sub-par for most RC manufactorers. Its hard to say though, it really depends on your intentions.

Lightbulb Dumbtech(smartech)

Here in Australia it is quite a well known brand(not for there quality). they are aimed at car park bashing or races with mates. they are a very basic car and they are not suitable for racing. I would give it a miss -they are know as dumbtech here.
