welcome to the wonderful world of nitro..

Couple hints...

Cut down those body post's......nothin' says noob more than long body post's..(well,maybe flying the frequency flag on the antenae of your transmitter )

Back that paint job with white....it will add some depth,and won't look "see through"......

other than that,enjoy your ride......

PS,if you decide to get deeper into it,and want to race,we run in Nanuet NY on tues nights....

TC3 is a good car. You want a good RTR car for $200 look at the Yokomo RTR from Ultimate hobbies. It's usually around $399. 2 speed.... sweet car.....very fast out the box. It can be hopped up. And still compettive on the tracks.

good luck

as the owner of an HPI SS,and the tc3 nitro,I absolutely would go TC3......the SS isn't even close in handling....

Make sure yopu get the new RTR PLUS version....it won't be out for a few more weeks...

Nanuet NY is over the tappan zee bridge(NY STATE THRUWAY).......about 5 miles from the palisades mall......

thanks its my first one

its the cen racing CT4S
i want to race it also just working on handling the speed of it.

i hear that kits are better then RTR's becuase you will know everthing about the car and how each part works. soon enough when building your own cars you can find out what the problem is with out asking for help. are kits the same price as RTR's?
