If you are just starting, which it sounds like you are, find out what most guys are running at the track you will be at most of the time. They should be able to help you get started with setup tips etc. (I know the guys at my track did with me) - also be sure about parts availability at your local hobby shop. I would be very surprised if you don't break a few parts while you are learning.

I am wondering if there are, or better yet, what the best kit would be for me to start with??? And where to get?? It seems I get real confused by all the different kits and what they go to.

Thanks for the help..............

Hey, this may be different to everyone else's suggestions, but my first decent chassis was a Tamiya, a TB Evolution 3, thats a shaft drive. If you were looking for a belt drive, try an X-RAY or a TRF 415 chassis kit. Hope this helps. Later on, if you want a more advanced shaft drive, try the new TB Evolution 4.. Look on Ebay, you can find these on there. The EVO 4 and the 415 will probably come in their original boxes as a kit, but there is a good chance that an EVO 3 would already have been built and raced. Hope this helps.

All the main companies (AE, Losi, Tamiya & all that). Most of their cars are basically the same. If you're looking for an all out racer choose one of them. If you just want something to play with & model NASCAR's after. Then I'd recomend the same or a lower budget car.

And for the record, I've the driven the TC3. HATE IT! Went to Xray, love it! It's the best car I've driven & it's a tank!

I tried the xray of my buddy in the track last week just check out how does it differ from other.. My observation was its ok and a bit fast but as I tried the 415 of my buddy I was amazed and shock to how it respond so quick to the radio!.. its much faster than an xray!. its just my opinion!..

The xray is a car that will most likely go togeather with not troubles and can be quite quick. If I was to pick a TC I would definately go with one with a winning background and good parts support (TC3 all the way!!)
