I just bought a used TC3 factory team with tires and extra parts for 100$ shipped. Looks new also. Just add esc, battery, motor, and a servo. You dont even need the factory kit but it is nice. I just wanted something that was low maintenance to try out on-road racing. From what I understand the associated shaft drive requires less work than a belt system. I have always bought Losi off-road, but the Associated seemed like a no-brainer.

with the new xray t2 coming out, everyone is selling thier fk05's, you should be able to pick one up at a reasonable price.
just check the for sale forum, and see how many newly posted 05's there are for sale.

If you want a belt driven touring car, go for HB Cyclone. If you opt for shaft drive, then HPI Pro4 is the other option. These cars are very competitive, durable and for real pros. Another factor with these cars are the hop up parts. Tons of aftermarket product are available in the market, on-line and most hobbyshops worldwide.

what are the differences in the last couple of xray model electric cars, i see t1, t1r, t1fk, t1 evo2, and the final fk05, and talk of a t2? what should i look at? all i want is a good car that will give me more track time so i can get better at nitro 1/10? i dont think i need the best of the best unless the price is right. but i dont want an old school ride either.

electric seems more in depth than nitro, so many adjustable option parts, carpet/asphault parts and setups??? hope im not in over my head.

i saw a fk05 fully loaded just add tx/rx and speed control for $275, i think i should have gotten it but i havent had a chance to research all the models?

The different models you saw are the updated ones. There are a heap of FK05's in the for slae thread on this site search depending on what u like u might want to find one with a battery brace with it or u will have to buy it urself or use tape. The FK05 would be the perfect car for the beginner as it is fast and extremely durable so u can focus on cutting faster lap times than having to repair ur car. Don't worry about the new T2 to much trouble for a beginner to sort out and get dialled as the cost of the new T2 will be extremely high and won't make a difference if u can't stay of the boards. The extra money saved on the kit can be put to batteries and motors and maintainence gear as this will make u faster than a kit alone.

Have Fun Racing
