Where do people with 1/8 nitro or ep off-road buggy or truggy play in sg?

Any info on the track at turf city?
Do they accept nitro 1/8 scale or EP 1/8 scale off-road?

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

I am seeking assistance in understanding the value of RC cars as I have zero knowledge of them.
I have 7 RC's with me that was left by my father.
If anyone is kind to help me on this matter, It would mean a lot.

Thanks!

Hello there,

I would like to ask for some buying advice for an electric brushless off road RC car. I played with RC Cars when I was much younger (Tamiya Hornet and Toyota Celica) and would very much like to get back into it. I quite like the Kyosho Inferno neo 3.0VE, but this is based purely on budget and brand recognition. I don't really know enough about the build quality in comparison to the other car in the similar price bracket. I would like to run the car in forest terrain and on gravel. Any advise here is greatly appreciated. Thank you .

Kind regards.

Pls state yr budget. Do note that since you wanna get hobby grade rc, that means you need to have the necessary tools to make any repairs.

Post a video? If it has a wheel bearing, the bearing might be seized.

Thunder Alley? That's in USA right? As usual, go to the tracks near you and take a look and see what platforms are popular there.
start on a brand that's locally supported and where there's fellow brand drivers who are able to advise you when you need.

500-700 is good for RTR. Either Touring or Drift depending on which u like.
You can go Taising, Swan Models or Urban RC.
Urban RC has a track.
YouTube can provide videos on seeing which u prefer

if you wanna get into racing, you should consider bringing yr car to Urban Playspace and get some track time.
Guys there can offer your guidance.
In yr free time, read and understand how each setting works. i.e Camber, Ride Height, Weight Distribution, wheelbase, Caster, ESC settings etc. These can be a base of you better understanding how a car would react with each change.
