Default Upgrading to a New 1/10 Car

Hello everyone!

I have been running my CEN CT5 for a while (about a year), which has included breaking it in, tuning, and rebuilding the car. However, I have decided to upgrade to a new 1/10 model since the CT5 goes fast, but I'd rather have a better/higher quality model that I could use for racing with friends and people I know.

I have currently been looking into the HPI Evo and Team Associated NTC3. What would be a good model to move up to that handles well and is potentially upgradable, considering I have some experience with nitro cars?

I highly recommend the EDAM Spirit!! Great model, goes together well and highly upgradable. This is a competitive car at a reasonable price, especially for your racing with your friends!

Buy whatever others are driving at the track and then u can pick up 2nd hand rollers and share parts. Consider clutch, radio, battery, charging, engine starting and servo strategy before making your decision.

^^^^^^

What he said. If not that then either Serpent or a Mugen. Both these brands are well supported on the Internet through many online shops.
