Guys anyone??!!! suggestion are highly appreciated.......
use the allen wrenches for r/c and not the L type you find in hardware stores......the THORP (MIP) wrenches are one of the best.

Default Newbie here, too

I'm a newbie, too, and I actually haven't decided whether to go OFF or ON Road.

Off road kasi has the added versatility of playing it anywhere, even if there's no track. Also, driving it SEEMS more forgiving (and slides look spectacular, too).

However, there is something in me that really wants to try on-road, too. I drive in (real life) Rally Cross, and I prefer the Tarmac stages to the Dirt/Gravel stages (I drive a Honda City 1.3).

Also, I met a few guys in Capitolyo race track: Gerry, Joel, Chris... all seemed very friendly, and that's the atmosphere I like.

ANYWAY... to my questions:

I am looking at the XRAY touring car. GIOCAMOTO has been very helpful, and explains a lot of things to me. I like the XRAY over the Associated and the Losi because it looks absolutely GORGEOUS (yes, I know, not the best reason to buy a racecar, but what the heck). Also, in terms of durability, it looks a bit more solidly built (perfect for a beginner like me who'll probably crash).

I haven't decided whether to get the RAYCER or the EVO2. I am more inclined to go the RAYCER route because it is less expensive. And besides, I'm a beginner, so sayang lang ang top-of-the line stuff for my skill level.

Comments on my reasoning?

2nd Question: While the Novak Brushless is more expensive, I like the idea that it is more maintenance free. Also, as a beginner, I heard you can run it more, and consecutively, which is great so I can get "seat-of-the-pants" training (i.e., more practice for a beginner).

I also like the fact that it has a rev-limiting feature (so it will be slower--another plus for a beginner), and yet when the skill level improves, it can be equivalent to a 10-turn motor.

BUT, in case I end up wanting to race, is the Novak Brushless LEGAL? Someone said it may be legal in stock racing (with the limiter function on), but wasn't sure.

Again, I like it because it is more maintenance free (so initial cost is the only negative), and can be run again with less downtime (since I heard motor doesn't get as hot).

Matibay ang X-RAY ala nasisira and K yan si GIACAMOTO!

Wrong answer! Later on as your skills improve, you will look for things that are already in the EVO2, so why spend more later, buying this and that when you can just buy the EVO2 and would'nt have to change anything later on!

Yep good choice!!! Practical

Well, I haven't really decided (off or on road -- I still have to watch Emer and the gang at QCRCCC), but am pretty much decided on electric.

Assuming on-road, would the Raycer be a better fit for a beginner than the full blown EVO 2 of XRAY?

Comments on the Brushless motors (see my concerns in post above)? Legal in racing or not?

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions!

--Alf

[EDIT] My questions were answered pala by Lem2; I didn't notice at once because I thought he just re-quoted my post. Thanks for your opinions, Lem!

Anyone else with their opinions?

like what TambokGT said, streamline your preferences first. you will really get confuse from so many inputs that you will get.
