I use a hot rodded Revo. I use the Revo because of ground clearance and speed. I put in a RB 523 and geared it for top end. I set up a line on my street and run it back and forth. At the end of line, I have two cones for a turn. I move to different positions and keep the line. I want to keep up on aspect ratio, depth perception and peripheral vision. I like using a real R/C car because no simulation in my opinion is real enough.

If you plan to buy a Mugen you should go for the MTX4R as this has the updated bits and some options like CVDs Front combo diff etc.
It will save you quite a few dollars!!

Getting out on a track is really the only way to learn, anyone can run around by themselves up and down the street or where ever, it's a different story when your in traffic on a track, which can only be learnt running with others, track time is the best practice you can get, i thought my driving was quite good, that went out the window when i first hit a race track, if you can practice on a track do so, i have the luxury of having a track 5mins from my house that is open 24/7, it is club run but open to the public on none race days which is only once every 2 weeks
