i have been into the hobby for about a year and had the lrp for about 4 months and i might start just like going to the track and racing a few guys there and then maybe go to the race meets and have a crack at them

For sure, learn with something cheap till your more consistant. When you feel more competitive, upgrade. Wouldn't sink a heap of money into an S8BX in upgrades though.

Race it until you know the basics and get more consistent. If you want to upgrade, look at what the fast local guys are running. Much easier when you need help/setups and parts.

the lrp is a decent car, just like the z-car in the US. They are a decent race platform that alot of people hace done well eith on the club sceen. It is all about set up and driving. Get a nice transmiter and servos and upgrade to a decent kit later.

Like i said about the biscuit, yes it will my friend, look for anything at or above
130oz of torque and .15 speed or faster) <-- you can do lower but thats my opinion.
