Haven't bought a car yet? Thought I've seen you asking what car to buy for months already. You would have been driven a car by now and can tell what's good/bad from one another.

No doubt! The Alex R2 is surely nice, but kinda expensive. Parts support is pretty limited to a few sources. But, this is what racing car is all about.

Well, good luck finding the car you'd like. I just hope to see you build the nitro, drive, and enjoy the fun of what nitro car has to offer.

cheers!

Since there are many many many models of cars to choose from, to make it easy on me and everyone in helping you decide, let us know first whether you prefer Shaft Driven or Belt Driven car.

if your running on parking lots, then a shaft driven car will be alot more reliable, no pebbles in the belts which would happen with the other cars.

i would recomend the NTC3, building mine right now
