Default Best budget Nitro?

I'm considering a Nitro car cuz I want the run time. I'm tired of taking that 30 minute walk with my frie3nds and our batts dump so we have to walk 30 min back to charge em all back up!

I have a VERY VERY tight limit!! as in max 150 candian. What kinda tourer used I guess could I get for that?

150??? My advice to you is to continue saving till you get another 150 A decent nitro will cost you atl east 300 bucks. And depending if its a pull startt engine or not you may have to get a starter box will be another 100 bucks. I have a Mugen and it cost be about 500 bucks for the car.

$150 Canadian??? That's like $95 US

Good Luck, even Used... A halfway decent USED Nitro engine will cost that much, new, even more.

Best price I recall seeing on an HPI RTR was around $230-240 US, save your money, I seriously doubt that you'll find anything for $100.
