Noob 3.0 find a car that you can buy parts for and that is not out of date that rs42 is hpi's old car there new car is the r40 and if you are new are you sure you want nitro.it's fun but but there is alot of troble shooting to do you have to be patient. if you get into nitro your in for the long run or it's just a waste of money ,but if you do get one I would get the ntc3 associated keeps there same car and just's up grade's it you don't have to buy a new car every two year you just keep up with the grades plus you can find there parts almost any where good luck!!!!!! look on ebay I bought mine for 170.00 if this is going to be your first nitro engine I would get a os cv to start with there is alot to learn os motor are easy to tune and always start up

IF you could get $20 more, you could afford an Associated B4 from www.stormerhobbies.com It is electric, offroader, and is a very good car.

i want an onroad thoagh

Ooooh I misread what you typed lol ;)

Do you think you would prefer electric or nitro? I know you said you want nitro, but have you thought about electric as well? Nitro cars are great fun, but for a beginner they can bring with them a lot of unwelcome work and problems. I am not telling you what to do by any means lol, but it might be worth thinking about. My first car was a nitro, and I was besieged by problems. I have since only ever bought electric cars. Dont assume that 'cause they are electric they must be slow, that's not the case.

They can be good like that yes, but when their are totally nonsensical problems coming your way, it can get more frustrating than educational.

I looked on www.towerhobbies.com and all I could find in your price range was this:
However, that doesnt include radio/starter etc :(

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCTE4&P=0 is an all round better car. Again though, it does not include radio/starter

05-16-2004, 07:26 PM
Oops, forgot to say too, that car features a 2 speed transmission and a nice engine!

what do you mean radio/starter

05-16-2004, 07:43 PM
It doesnt have the radio needed to control the car, nor does it have the starter to start the car. Nor, does it have the 12 AA batteries needed lol, or fuel. Just a few extra costs to be aware of

hey miller thanks for your help but i might just have to save up my money and buy a real car

The parts and car are in excellent condition. The RS4 is a great starter car if you're going to bash or parking lot race. The R40 is a different car altogether and is more of a dedicated race track, race car, NOT a bash car. This car does have a used Stratus body with it.

email is brickbat1@hotmail.com

I've got more pics if you're interested.

No problem. Kmac's car looks like a bargain, I used to know some people that ran RS43s and they absolutely loved them. I know a lot of people prefer to buy their gear new, but it might be worth thinking about Kmac's lol.
