He tried his luck at a nitro one first and apparently didn't go very well. http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...ro-rc-car.html

Hey everyone, give the guy a break. He's a beginner, just as his name implies but don't laugh when he grows up to be the next Mark Reinard or Masami Hirosaka. Everyone starts low and work their way up. Look Beginner, it's hard to get a fully complete ready to run with $100 but knowing that you are in here tells me that you are looking for something serious to play or race with. $100 is a lot of money and I want you to at least enjoy some kind of racing. I don't want to discourage you but Losi is selling a nice ready to run 1/24th scale Short Course Stadium truck or Rally version of it for $109. You can get that at your local hobby shop. Once you improve on your driving, I'm sure you can sell it and get into the 1/10th scale. 1/10th scale is where it's all at...and if you are a really really fat boy, go for 1/8th scale. The price difference between 1/10 and 1/8 is around a thousand or more...At any rate, back to getting you into racing, you should pay attention at the buy/trade/sale forum and give a hard bargain. People are always going in and out of this hobby and you might be able to grab something and piece it together...or try fleabay and bid the best you can. Older cars usually are cheaper. My best advice to you is whatever that you plan on getting, don't bash it and run it to the ground. Everything costs money, even e-clips. Last, a race car/buggy is a highly efficient machine....bashing it won't get you anywhere but you'll end up replacing parts and unfortunately you'll really dislike the car/buggy because it'll be an eye sore to have to replace all the parts. Best wishes and welcome aboard. If you need any Mabuchi motor to get you going or a cheap electronic speed control, I can donate some of that stuff to you.

Talking Radio Shack....

I think radio shack has the answer to his prayer...LOL!

But i don't even those slow as a turtle rtr's arent under a $100.00 any more!

Better luck on e-bay finding a garage sale or maybe just a roller even!

And... there's my 2 cents worth.... LOL!
