You can find the G4S at racedayhobbies.com. But the Kyosho GT that JetMD pointed out would be right up your alley because it's based off of the buggy platform. Don't under estimate how killer this car can be. But if you really want to go for the 10th scale sedan, the G4S is what I race and you will be very happy with it. They have a variety of RTR kits to full race kits. So a good selection for you to choose from. Good luck bro.

Dude, it's difficult for people to post when your not being very specific,k. We understand your new to onroad, so what has caught your eye? How much money do you want to spend? With onroad you can spend anything between Say $400-$2000 to start with. So your budget depends a lot on what to get. Also, will you be racing at a track or anything, or just bashing? Is there a racetrack or club near you that you know of? We need a lot more information to point you in the right direction. Do you already have radio equipment or do you need that as well? Do you have a starter box?

Did you take the time and look at the Kyosho GT? What did you like about it or didn't like about it?
Where would you say your skill level is as an offroad racer? Like average or were you always one of the fastest guys at the track?

What made you deside to get out of off road and try onroad? Did you see something that caught your eye and want to lean towards that direction?

Give us some more feedback so we can help you narrow down your options that would suit you best. K. Be patient, we'll help you find the right car bro! later for now.

I don't know this may look like a toy to those pure bred racers but I started with it (well a version older) six years ago and it got me hooked to onroad. Up until now I'm still racing onroad (surely not with the same car though ).

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXEHW8**&P=7

I took it to the track, bashed in parking lots, played in front of my house. It was a lot of fun. And the best part was the price . I got to try onroad inexpensively as a newbee.



Anyways, if money is no issue, and since you've raced 3 years of offroad already, you may build a kit from scratch and go from there. After racing 3 years, you are not as newbee as those who bought their first RC car yesterday and I bet you will enjoy the kit building and such .
