Default Which rc car

At the first of the year I am looking into getting a road car. Im not looking for anything high dollar just a simple car to get on the road and do some drifting with. I have been looking at the traxxas 4tec. Any input would be nice or if there is a better car for about the same price that would be nice.

Traxxas is crap. Get a Tamiya or HPI for drifting.

Ohhh, and I think you should go to the electric forum, cuz doing drifting with a nitro car is not very wise...

Well drifting isnt the only thing im going to do. I have an ofna buggy that i can get to drift a little but I just want something a little lower to the ground to play with. And the electric deal im just not into electric. Ive heard that drifting is easier with electric but can be done with gas. Love the smell of burning nitro!!

Look at the Kyosho Inferno GT cars.

They're big, bad, beautiful, go over 50mph stock out of the the box, they're ready to run, are stronger than anything out there and can be had for under $400 dollars.

The stock RTR tires drift like a real full size car.

A lot of tracks will be racing them in "Spec" classes for 2008 too.

The Kyosho Inferno GT Rocks!

ignore Ramiel, he's a traxxas basher, must have been bashed by so many 4-tecs and probably can't counter steer correctly.

I have HPI drift tires and it's easy to drift the 4-tec even though it is moderately heavier than other nitrol cars out.

For the price I would also go with the Inferno GT which also can be set up to race in the new spec class

Thanks guys. I know there is alot of people out there that hate traxxas but ive never had a problem with them. My first car is the nitro sport. Its 3 years old with at least 5 gallons through it and never been rebuilt. But like alot of things it depends on what day of the week it was made.
