Smile Needing some Help choosing - Serpent or Xray

Hi there, ok so here goes...

I am currently running the new Xray NT1 2009 spec. I have the opportunity of buying a 2nd Hand Xray NT1 or Serpent 960 - 1/8.

Which would you buy?

I am thinking if i buy the 2nd hand Xray NT1 then I could either use this as a 2nd car or for spare parts.

I am also interested in 1/8 but have never run before so would the serpent 960 be a good starting point for me?

..and if I buy any of these 2nd Hand rc cars what would be vital to get them up and running in terms of what you need to change eg bearings...

The price should it matter are almost the same. The serpent 960 is only slightly more expensive.

Thanks
Colin

off topic.. but.. what kind of motor/pipeservo setup ya running.... I am thinking about getting a NT1 09..

topic..

IMO... it would depend on price and how much/hard you run your car... a cheap second hand car could save a ton of money and time at the track.

You should get the 2nd NT1 because running 2 classes is very stressful and expensive. Jmo and as for vette's question Max power XXL w/2649 pipe

I would stick to sedan also, running two classes is extreme they say you really cant learn how to drive one or the other by racing both, there are a lot of guys out there i know can, but on the money side of it, 1/8th scale cost big bucks, and like someone else here said here r/c stands for really cost
