Default Best electric?

If there is one electric car or truck i should buy what should it be...? Im looking for one just because i only have nitro and want to get electric to have it.


Also are there tracks where nitro is run indoors?

Depends on what you want to do.
Aspahlt or Carpet.
If you stick with the:
HPI Pro4, Tamiya 415, Associated TC4 or a T1 Series Xray,
You should be fine.
They are all top of the Line.
You may also want to look at the Schumacher MI2 or the upcoming JRXS by Losi.
Trying to get which of these is the best car is like asking somebody their politics or religion, Everybody is different.

Well i mean ive driven the TC4 cuz ive driven like all the Associated cars/trucks and i liked it..Im fairly new to all of this so i cant say im right but you know, i like it. I have a question though this is kind of random but can i put like an HPI body on a Associated car like the TC3? Also can you run nitros indoors?

Anywho..ive heard good things about the Pro 4 but i think ide probably like the TC4 better...

yes you can adapt an hpi body on your kit whatever it may be as long as its 190mm.

yes there are indoor tracks that allow nitro cars.

yes the hpi pro 4 is one great car too.

i recommend to check out the jrx and the fk05. both cars are very promising.

Well I was going to stay away from the expensive cars, but since you teased him.. I would go with the Xray T1FK05.
Thats going to be my next car.
Downside, The thing is going to cost like $375.

bout the tc4......here in our local circuit, one of the top racers use it and he is really fast.....but, it gets easily broken....the arms are weak and it does not handle crashes well....you need to really stock up on parts......if you want durability, get the xray......bullet proof car and its fast too.

Default BEST of the BEST of the BEST SIR! with HONORS!

Tamiya 415, or Tamiya Evo IV. Belt drive or Shaft drive either one you can't go wrong! Of coarse these are top of the line and are a little priceyer then others but you won't be disappointed!

i am using the evo IV.....great car, really fast. it had a weak drive cup but that is the only weakness. i replaced it with aluminum and so far, the car has been performing really well....

You also cant go wrong with a corally RDX or a shumacher MI-2.....the corally is a little pricey but (just like the xray) the quality is about as good as you can get...parts support should be a pretty big consideration also....good luck......
