Default Help on selecting a car

Hi guys was wondering if i could get some advice on choosing a car to buy to get back into racing. I used to race in the gas tourer class 1/10th scale about 10 years ago with a kyosho v one s but times have changed alot and i have no idea what to purchase to get back into the sport. Iam not looking for anything super serious just something i can have fun with and be some what competitive. Also any advice on choosing radio gear as i had an am crystal controller back then as well lol.

Thanks guys

Luke

Xray NT1R and Futaba 4PL or Sanwa MT4.

Also, if you are going to race in a track, you should look what the other guys are running and what your Local hobby shop carries.

What he said. For example, I run and sell Edam, which is pretty good and a lot cheaper than everyone else. However, to the best of my knowledge, I'm the only one in the states doing it, so your parts support would either come from me or directly from the factory overseas, and I don't move as quickly as I should (busy with work and rheumatoid arthritis slows me down.) There is a lot of sense in running what the guys around you are running in case you need parts on the spot, or tech advice. Unfortunately, to break out of the mold, you either need to be willing to take a chance or simply can't afford the other, high priced stuff...or just like being different.

Nitro rc cars are also extremely well-known. Their performance, option and affordability mean that they are feasible probably the most well-known sort of rc car. You will find so numerous diverse kinds to select from but the two simple categories are off road and on road.
