I have been messing around with my mates remote control car and would like to get one for myself. I'm relatively new but would like something fairly decent to drive.

not to fussy if it's electric, petrol or nitro.

Please let me know if you have anything lying around and how much you would like for it


Also after advice of any good makes/models to keep my eyes peeled for? Rep will be given

On road / Off road?
Scale?
Would recommend buying a kit and building it. I would recommend the electric for a first car and if you go for the standard 1/10 scale there are plenty of upgrades including a brushless motor.

Thanks for your reply!! A few people have said to me start with electric so I think its the best way to go. Is it difficult to build? I'm fairly good at building items but I have never dealt with a rc car before

I've had something very similar to this previously and it was a great little car especially at turning but I'm looking for something the next stage on. Thank you for the offer though

Thank you for your post. I've heard of Tamiya as my friend recommended them but I will have a look into Kyosho. Are parts easy to obtain for either brand do you know?

Thanks I will await the details. Not having the original box is not a problem

I would start with a Tamiya TT-01. Easy to build and plenty of spares around especially from the far east! Kits start from around £50 if you shop around.

A build from scratch should take 5-6 hours tops, but the best thing is you can buy the kit and then purchase the radio gear after.
All the kits come with the bog standard motor but to upgrade is quite easy.

If you have a look at this about the brushless system you will see what i mean! TT01 Brushless Motor

Ahh right thanks!! Thats very interesting!! I will look into a kit as before I thought they may take awhile and be abit out of my league to manufacture but I have looked into it a little and it doesnt seem to bad!!! I will look at some Tamiya TT-01 kits and then if it turns out to be a success will research into the brushless motor as that seems ace!! Thank you for your advice as its much appreciated

Plenty of different body types for the TT01 and some good youtube demos to watch.
