i have a tc4 and love it. as for the batteries you cannot beat promatch on deals and performance from what ive noticed. the charger, i like the pulsar 2 but thats more than bacic. i also noticed that the trinity 19 turn is awsome and the esc i have the quantum reverse. its good for 19 i think and i got the reverse cause you can turn it off and i turn it on for practice sessions so i do not have to run and fix it when i crash.

on a budget, why not look into the KO charger
they are around 100 i believe and can charge up to 8 amps. And I think it looks cool.

The KO charger is a superior charger. They work extremely well. If you can get them at $100 I would do it. I know KO has a sale on their shopatron...

If u want a brick pack of those epic cells, go to towerhobbies.com they sell em there in cases, you just have to match them your selves. As for batteries, I have SMC's which run reallly good, and Promatches. I plan on getting kinetix or try fusion power, they have a 3 pack sale going on which is pretty nice... Good luck pal. As for the car, I to am thinking of what to get hehe.. so many new models are coming out.

i mean there isnt much to say about it; it does the basics...charging. It doesnt have discharge and motor run, but if someone is looking for something to get the job done, then the KO will work perfectly. Then someone can get a discharger and will be set. I have a Pulsar 2 and probobly will buy the KO next because i dont need another charger with motor run and discharge.

its DC. If you are looking for batteries, maybe try looking at Team 1, Hurricane, Pole Position, among the other smaller and bigger matchers(SMC, Trinity, Reedy, Orion/Peak, etc) Im sure you'll find what youy are looking for
