Smile New to RC need a good starter car

I am an absolute newbie to RC's, and I need some help to guide me. I am currently looking for a car to start with, around $100, built for offroading. I was also wondering what are some good websites to look at RC cars, because I have seen a lot and I don't know which ones to trust. If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Amain hobby or Tower hobby are good to start. $100 isn’t much to start with.

With that budget you will need to look at Redcat or Hobby King they have budget r/c cars.

If you are looking into racing buggies, I would recommend the Kyosho RB6.6 ready set. It comes with everything you need except for the battery (which can be an inexpensive NimH at first). It's going to be over the 100 dollar budget though. Maybe you can find an used slash around that money

For about $100, that's gonna be tough. Not impossible, though. In no particular order:I'm sure there are countless more so look around. I would definitely recommend hitting up your local hobbystore to see what they have as far as parts availability goes...having parts readily available might be a good idea. I have a Teton myself for a while and only just recently burned the servo so it's lasted me quite a bit. The Turnigy looks good, too...but I have a bias since I like buggies...hahaha!

Good luck! We've all been there!
