both nitro and electric have their good and bad. an electric chassis is easier to tune than a nitro, but it is a good starting point. my first car was a nitro truck and i had no problem learning to tune the engine, people are always willing to help. i dont know much about the kyosho cars though, no one around here runs them except offroad.

if u r keen on nitro then just go for it...whatever the problems u'll encounter is part of the fun....remember in nitro sometimes u spend lot of time setting, tuning. cleaning,and whatever and that for me is part of the nitro fun ...

or u can also delay a bit the buying part...for better exposure go and hang out with the guys at the track and ask questions ,see how it turns out ..u can learn a lot,also u'll ...from there u'll make better judgement i hope..

i think u can find a decent used kit in the singapore for sale thread....

happy hunting...personally i'll go with either kyosho's or mugen

Hi rcabj ,

Thanks for your advice.

Totally agree that the problems are actually part of the fun.

Before you commit to a car, try and do as much research as possible on the various cars available be it electric or nitro.
Theres a wealth of info on the net about engine tuning, chassis setup etc etc and the more of this info you gather, the easier it`ll be when you actually go to purchase a car.
Try some these-

Hope this helps a bit
