word to the wise........that car.........if it is a car.......is not what you want to get. if i were you, id drop the extra cash, and get a kyosho v-one-s or a mugen msx-3 or mayber the gt4-rtr........ that car will have almost no parts support, and will be a hassle.....maybe even get the new hpi car.......but dont get that one....personally, im fond of the mugen cars....i myself drive an mtx-3 and mtx-2

hope this helped

Zero;

Whether your just playing in the street or planing of tearing up the tracks. You should pick a Car that has decent support at your Local Hobby shops. If you break it and have to wait for parts, what fun is that?
The HPI RTR-3 or the Associated RTR-NTC3 are more popular, probably more durable car and almost ever single Hobby Shop (In CA) will have the most common parts in stock. They are both very good cars for someone starting out in the hobby and we would ALL like you to succeed and stay in the hobby for many years to come.
