Default Need some help n advices on cars

Hi guys...
Im new into RC cars... Has experince in other RC genre's...

I would like some help n advices from you guys...
Am looking to set up a Nitro 1/8 or 1/10 track/touring car...
Wat would you guys recommend? Wat brands would be gd to look out for? Also something which is more advanced, don need the best but at least somewhere there in terms of power, handling and all.
Also mayb u guys could recommend me to some well know LHS (singapore) that i could go and source around fr a car? Was looking at the TM G4rs and others like the Kyosho V one RRR..

Lastly i would need a gd TX to control the car, m looking at a gd TX set, so any recommendations for that guys? Like 4pk, Spectrum & Helios...

Thx for the reading and thx in advance.

It really all depends on what car your local shop supports. I'm sure there are plenty in Asia that you can choose from that has support for each one of those cars. Just pick a shop and the corresponding car.
