I'm looking at used, 1 generation old cars, to save money. I figure by the time my driving skills are back up to the point where having the newest chassis will make a difference, anything I...

Most 1/8 buggies are very durable. I cracked a shock tower once on my XB8E and that is it. The number of hard tumbles it has endured is impressive.

On my xb4 1/10 4wd buggy, considered one of the...

Otterville is the best 1/8 track around. No offence to any of the others. Otterville is just meticulously maintained by the owner and in a very...

With any new servo or any new radio, you need to set up your endpoints and sometimes you need to set a channel to reverse. Also before hooking up a new servo, you want to make sure it's centered...

If you raced TC before, you aren't really a beginner. The sort of suggestions to new people like "go buy a Traxxas xxxxx" is aimed at the never owned a hobby grade RC before people. Even with truly...

Adding to this. It's trying to play 3 videos at once down the right hand side of the page, and you can only see a sliver of each, because the spaces are tall rectangles, not wide ones. Looks bad and...

Either would work well. The SS is faster, but loses a bit of torque. The T is still decently quick and has plenty of torque. Unless you are a master of doing whips and want that extra speed for the...

I just had it crash using IE 11 as well. I think it's a video ad causing the issue. I'm not sure what the ad is though because when the page crashes, the ad didn't fully load.

The Savox has better specs for the price. My hesitance in recommending Savox comes from using their low profile servos in my touring cars a couple of years ago. I ran into some precision and...

Do what you want to do, but if you don't already own that radio, I would strongly urge you to spend the extra $70 now on a better radio. DX4S $229 vs MT4S $299.

Oh yeah, the 170S is waaaaay overkill. Totally unnecessary. That savox 2274sg has very similar specs to a 150S and costs about $25 less. The savox will probably work great for you. It's mainly just a...

Ignore the servos the radio comes with. Those are worth like $5. I don't know why they include that crap.

With any modern ESC and digital servo, you can set the mode on the radio for those...

The xerun is good too. The SCT pro is just a great little ESC. It does the job very well and is super inexpensive. Most of the guys I know use them for ebuggy, including myself.

The Hobbywing SCT pro is a better deal by far and much more reliable than the Tekin RX8 as well. I've see a ton of Tekin ESCs go poof.

I'd never recommend Spektrum radios to anyone. Switching to...

I think sedan should just be one class, open mod. Run a 17.5 blinky in it if you want. Most people would consistently put in faster laps with a 17.5 than a 4.5 at any small carpet track. If they want...
