got videos of your driving?
Sorry, but this all happened before the big digital camera boom. I stopped back when I was 12 or 13, I turn 21 next week.
So what do I exactly need to start. I want to get an electric kit but I know certain kit's don't come with a motor and other things as well. Is it better to get a kit that you can build yourself or should you buy a good to go kit?? Give me some tips and shit!
To be completely honest, it all depends on what the guy above me said.
If you're simply planning on toying around with it, and just playing in empty parking lots, just grab and old RTR. If you're looking to get competitive, I'd suggest running to the local track/hobby shop and asking around/see what other people are using.
Since you're a beginner, I'd suggest sticking to the "stock" classes. Slightly slower motors, and alot more restrictions but the competition is still great and it gives you a better chance to understand how to set-up and drive the car. These rules apply to both on and off-road, and alot of the same tuning theories carry over from each discipline.
I'd personally recommend against Nitro for your first. It just adds a complete different level of tuning and makes the learning curve that much steeper. Not to mention it's ALOT more expensive.
If you do get an RTR kit, I'd recommend upgrading to a better electrical ESC, servo and transmitter first. At which point I'd worry about hop-ups (upgrades as known in the Tamiya world).
If you were to build a kit car, you'd need to start from scratch. But the advantage to this is you get a little more hands-on experience and more than likely you'd be ready to hop into a competitive stock series. However, you'd need to buy all electrical equipment separetly,
including but not limited to:
ESC (Electric Speed controller)
Chances are you'd need to buy batteries and a charger for both kits, so you'd be looking at a cost of atleast 150 on top of your kit cost to be up and running.
