Default Advice?

I am wondering if there is a better R/C car than the one I am planning to buy? My budget is $300.

yes, on that budget you can buy an Alfa 166, as clarkson said, the depreciation is very bad. You might be able to find on for under 300 as well as a controller and steering servos and such to make it RC. You can run over other RC cars with it and look good doing it.

What kind of car are you looking to get? do you want to race?

I actually know 190e, thats whats with the first post. He is looking for a car to race, something that has alot of adjustability and is a 1/10th scale on-road touring car.

As long as it is in good condition I will be fine with it. I am looking to race, and all of the servos, radio, engine, etc included and I would like a a lot of adjustably just as 159 said. Thanks for your assistance.

Which currency are we talking about? that will make a big difference given the conversion rate.

But I would check the for sale part of the forum. you can get some good sedan packages that have race legal motors for a good price.

Someone at our track in Toledo Ohio was racing yesterday with a $35 dollar radio that was 2.4ghz with receiver and actually ran pretty well. If that were an option you are left with $265 for a car and servos. My bet is you couild find a used car for about that price. The car you posted isnt that bad. it just doesnt have a race legal motor. When I first started nitro I got a used car with motor and servos for about 200 bucks. I am sure you may be able to find a similar deal.
