Default Looking to buy a Nitro on-road kit.

Okay, I'm a total noob, but I'm really interested in getting into r/c cars.
I'm Canadian so don't know where I can buy anything locally.
I'm looking for a kit with everything included(I want to build the thing myself), something with a good sized engine and a nice body.

Anyone have any suggestions?

THANKS!

If you buy a kit (put-it-together-yourself) they normally do NOT come with a body, motor, tuned pipe, steering servo, throttle servo and receiver pack.

You need a RTR (read to run) car. RTR's comes with everything but the AA batteries for the radio and receiver, glow igniter and fuel. Team Associated makes a good on road RTR car, the nitro TC3+. You can always get a used one for less at the "For Sale" section of RCTech.

Are you looking to race or just play with it in large parking lots?

The Inferno GT1 or 2 or OFNA DM-1 would be a good choice...they're very durable and easier to controller thant he smaller, but faster 1/10 or 1/8 on-road cars. Not as much maintenace either.

Thanks, I'll look around in the for sale section.. probably would be hard to find myself a good deal as I'm in Canada

My friend has a 16 engine.. (it says 16 on it) does it mean his car is a T16?

Since the RS4 nitro 3 and the nitro TC3+ are both shaft driven, I would get the nitro TC3+. Handles better, easy to work with, parts are cheap. I can go on and on, and it's around $250 (new).
