3 friends and I were thinking about getting into the hobby. We saw the tamiya baja champ and liked it. I was wondering if anybody could give me a small review of this car, or any other helpful info.

yeah, the baja buggy is based on tamiya amazingly popular TL-01 chassis (this was the first touring car I owned) but you guys should look into the Tamiya Blitzer Beetle this is a good first car.

Check out the traxxas electric stampede. That monster has the speed and the durability that you need for a beginner. It was my first RC Car and trust me, you will be impressed. Sold for $159, Ready to Run with Radio. All you need are AA batteries, charger, and one 7.2 volt battery. Good Luck!

If you like the Baja there is also a Stadium truck version of it same TL-01 but a differnt body called the Stadium raider if you are interested. Get the Baja. Traxxas isnt as goodin my opinion.

i think the Stadium Blitzerd is a better bet even though its identical to the Blitzerd Beetle but with a much better looking truck body.

The first RC car that i got was a hand-me-down (GASP) from my uncle. It was a Tamiya Frog and ran pretty good. I did finally get a RC of my own (my money http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/smile.gif ) and it was a DuraTrax Maximum ST. It is gas powered, takes a little bit of getting used to, but the sound and smell of a nitro car is one of the greatest things in this world. If you want a good one, i would get the DuraTrax Maximum ST. RCCA did a trash test on it in the April of 1999 issue, if you want me to i can scan the pages and send it to ya via e-mail, if that is legal. Dont want to have copyright people all over me. http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
