Isn't a 8thscale onroad a little too crazy for someone new to the hobby?

You dont need a good engine to start learning, get the cheapest bigblock your hobbyshop but do get a good metal gear servo for steering.

the stuff below should get you started and not be too much power...1/8 on-road cars are fast and twitchy...better to start out a little slow and work your way up...dont forget, you will need a pipe and header...and a starter box.
