Default A beginner

I have drive Nitro before, but then my interest was electric. But my brother is in RC to now, and he is driving a Thunder tiger TS4N, an we want to race together. So i gonne buy a nitro car. But i want a car that has a lot of setup options so i was thinking to buy me a Serpent impuls, this car comes in the netherlands (where i live) complete whit a starter ox and a two speed. Is this a good car for me as a nitro beginner i have a lot of driving and setup experiants because i race electro.

Whit greetings from Holland

Your best bet is to see what car you can get parts for.... EASILY!

Kyosho, Mugen, Trinity (kof.... kyosho clone), associated & yokomo all make good cars. If you wana be different... there is also Tamiya.

Serpent... is hit and miss on parts inventory, but that could be me seein it that way.

Serpent is a great car.
