hey lem! do you want to race or do you simply want to go bashing? if you want to go bashing, i'd suggest off road, like a monster truck! its hard to play touring cars on just about any road. with the momentum of nitro meeting the cracks on our streets, well... you know what's next. if you play on racetracks, you'd probably wish that you just got a competition car when you drive along with cars like mine!! hehe! just kidding! so i'd suggest for you to get a competition nitro car like a tc3 or r40 or mtx3 which are readily available in our lhs. or get a monster truck which is really fun to play with. get either a tmaxx or a savage. nothing else. period. if you want a tmaxx, i'm selling one second hand its in the for sale thread. hehe! coincidence lang! but trust me, don't get a rtr touring car nor a monster truck aside from the two i mentioned

i would say ntc3 but you would have to buy a two speed for it because it comes with a one speed

lem2 - RTR is stictky for fun only, if you want to get a little competitive then you will loose big money on up grading. For me think long term, if it is primarily for fun at the track with pals then go for your RTR. I would choose NTC3 or the Kyosho V1S. Don't touch the Megatech etc or event the HPI (sorry guys).

Get a Yokomo GT4-RTR2 ... you will have fun at the truck until you get the racing bug, then put a .12 engine on it and have fun racing.

where is the ld3 made by the way? if its taiwanese prices, then surely its not made in the US (or i may be wrong) because its relativley cheaper than other kits..

What lee82gx meant by Taiwanese prices is that it's pretty cheap.
