Default Electric Z10 Pro Kit

I found one for sale. It is new in the box for $50. Does anyone think this is a bad idea? Could someone direct me to a site where I could get more info. on this kit?

thanks

The Z10 is(or was) a sedan kit that was made by OFNA and marketed in 1997-1999. I had one then and it was a good chassis for its time - fairly light, free drive train, the shocks were smooth and it was pretty durable - in fact I don't remember breaking a suspension arm or anything else.

If you are a beginner and just need a cheap ride then go ahead and buy it - but parts may be non-existent.

I am actually doing a brushless on-road project. I just need a light, cheap car kit because the electronics cost so much.

I'd go for it then - and if you want to get rid of it later, let me know!

Cool. I just bought a high quality FM radio for it, and I am planning on setting up a 4 Li-po cell system with a brushless motor. It should fly. I am going for 60+ mph.

The only thing that won't handle that is the rubber tires that come with the kit, even if you glue them on - they'll come off the rims, you'll need a set of foams.
