Most of the local hobby shops will have a range of selection for you.
Really depends on your definition of "good".

A good place to start is knowing what kind of vehicle you like to run, whether it's onroad of offraod. For offroad here's a good youtube channel to start:

For onroad you can check out urban playspace at fortune centre that's just behind bugis+. They have a track n hobby shop there. Have fun!

The main types are touring, drifting, off-road. then there are the sizes of the vehicles: 1/10 aka small, 1/8 medium, 1:5 large.
Go on YouTube and watch the videos and see which ones u prefer.

Default Mounting speed control caps

I looking for information on where to mount my speed control capacitors on my b5m (hobbywing quicrun speed control). Is it ok if I mount them to my servo? There is a perfect place for them behind my shorty servo (futaba 9550) but I am concerned about any interference I may encounter mounting them there. Any advice is appreciated!

Welcome to the B5m club!

Yup you can. I mount my receiver on my servo. If you're running at Segar track see you soon!

Cheers!

Default Extra fan

Hi guys,

Can anybody please help me understanding how to wire a second fan on a 4wd buggy?

I've seen that some people use an extra fan on 1:10 off road buggies next to the motor. I am just wondering how to do the wiring, can 2 fans be connected to the esc? I think the extra fan should be connected to the receiver but I am not sure if this is the right way of doing it. My receiver has 4 ports, to which one should it be connected? what would you use to stick it to the chassis?
Also would it make a difference if I used a 30mmx30mm instead of a 25x25mm? would the bigger one somehow overload the esc?

Any help would be useful.

Cheers

U can connect the extra fan to yr receiver. Channel 1 & 2 is used for thottle and steering so whichever other channels are free can use. Size doesn't affect.

Guys, I know this question has been asked before but the threads looked quite old. I've just moved to Singapore and bought my first off-road RC car. Besides turf club, where are other places to race or just drive around without causing problems with the public?

You can check out the paid astro track at Urban Playspace at Bugis. Also the free dirt track next to the jogging track near 480A Segar Road. Have fun!
