Default 4wd Nitro Sedan

Suggestions for my first nitro car.. I want to race but don't need the fastest, craziest car right away.. Looking for a good starter car and motor combo..

THanks for any help,

Charley

I agree, the ntc3 is about the best "race-worthy" car you can start out with.

well.....ntc3 RTR....drive that until u have the urge of "the need for speed" get a faster engine...i recommend the RB engine..great engines...modify the car, etc etc when u get going.

I agree with RC Buddha.....the NTC3 is an excellent nitro car to start out with, and if you can drop an RB V12 engine into it, you`ll have a very competitive car
Cheers
