all motors are interchangeable with other kits and also with most engines.

some parts are interchangeable, specially TAMIYA kits.


I will be biased with my answer ha.(at least honest)

screaming

watch races(on and off-road), see what kit racers run(most often than not...dominant kit is the best buy for you)...mingle with the racers(approachable naman lahat yan)...unload all your questions, better if you could try out various kits ( 0n/offroad, gas/electric)....if you've satisfied your questions --- time to scout the hobby shops for a good deal (safer to get brand new kits)
...ganda rin kung yung hobbyshop will offer aftermarket tech support...na libre

i wanted to check out the track sa park square kanina pero when i asked the guard, closed na daw.

may nakita din akong hobby shop dun, futab something yta, pero closed na rin. i'm not planning on buying yet, i probably just wanted to browse or check out some prices.

i really want to watch people practicing so i'm wondering what time the track closes sa park square 1.

past 7 PM, malapit na yta mag 8 nun.

anybody have any idea what time the track/shop in Fort closes, i don't want to go there tapos close na pla?

also, are there stores that specializes in one brand,like lets say store A specializes in Tamiya while store B specializes in HPI? or like this store is the only store that sell HPI or Kyoswho or whatever?

also, do casual races happen in the tracks, like between those who practice?

isa pa, hehe, any thoughts about buying 2nd hand, like the ones posted sa barter thread dito?

tnx a lot. =)

pare! punta ka na lang sa mga shop..... kasi kung lagi ka magtatanong, di masasagot ang iba mo tanong! ikaw lang ang makakapag-decide o makakasagot sa gusto mo! about sa fort maaga nagsasara kasi wala pang ilaw! para sa gabi! go there morning and bring your own baon! hope to c u dude sa mga race's!

sw
bro. you got lots of questions in your head pero tama yan just ask bago ka mg decide. galing nga pala ako kanina sa park square. i practice for 2 hours lang. its fun kahit mg isa lang (theres no one to see pg nagkamali ka) hehehe

for begginer like you most racers suggest to try electric because its less complicated and easy to maintain. these guys are right, but you can even get a cheaper items kung medyo nalulula ka sa price. you can try some kits ng tamiya.

Cool

SW

Try mo TAMIYA BRAND...... Bilhin mo agad ung TRF414m2 d k magsisisi... Kung ayaw mo non try mo ung TB02-Evo III ..... D k n basta basta maiiwan dyan as a beginner.....

Dapat lang dalasan mo ang practice mo sa tracks para mas ma-apreciate mo ung power ng RC mo...

To be a PRO you must have ample time for it......

With regards nga pala sa tnong mo kung meron hobby shop n especialized lang sa 1 brand??!! Unfortunately wala..... kasi almost all of them support wide range of RC brands....

Talking yes tamiya!

ako sa tamiya din ako nag start, karamihan siguro! kasi yan di basta-basta masisira ang part! may mga kit pang laro-laro lang at meron naman pang race-race! ika nga u can choose that suit ur budget! importante yung interest mo, budget at skills!

tapos kung medyo gsto mag-upgrade or mag-iba ng kit, dami sa mga local hooby shooppss natin pagpipilian!

or para maka-tipid buy 2nd hand kit and other r/c stuff!
esep-esep ka muna!
