I'm usally on the atv section, but I would love to get into RC's, Can anyone help me with what is a good starting car? without spending a lot of money. Also, do you know of any Indy Car rc's Thanks, Duane
Hi Duane. I too am new to r\c stuff. I got a radio shack
aftershock, 4wd and like it pretty well for a starter kit. It will run you around $100-125 american.
Also does anybody know if after market bodies from the major mfgrs will fit on a radio shack truck. I've seen some at dahm's that are really cool.
Radio shack cars make great starter cars. With a little ingenuity, and some aftermarket body posts the body possiblities are endless. Here is a couple of web pages for you to look at. One is a monster truck site and the other is an online hobby shop. They have great prices.
I recommend for your first car buying a decent used one. You will get usually get extra parts and save $$ off the price of a new vehicle. Do you want to race competively or just play around? But when buying a used vehicle, you need to be careful to not get one that has been abused. Make sure that it has been maintained properly. Ask when the differential was last rebuilt or the shocks. If they answer that they have never needed rebuilt, then they probably aren't the person to buy from.
Tamiya Superhornet tough, easy to build, easy to find cheap and will toast a radio shack. I got my start with one of these, it was about five years ago and the car is still going. Also what do you want the vehicle to do.
I've got a Team Associated RC10T2 Completely Ready to run including 5 motors/ two speed controls, radio, charger, and two batteries... This was my third R/C Car and I loved it .. now need cash so pretty much selling everything.. email me email@example.com if you want some more information... my only advise stay away from Radio Shack Cars.. your not going to learn how to build the car? paint bodies? new motors.. get a hobby buggy/truck if anything..
<font color=blue>Check out the Traxxas Stampede. They come in electric or gas, and they're indestructable! I have the nitro one and its a lot of fun. If it's you first car, go electric. You'll have an easier time.
i agree with biggrey either the Stampede, or Rustler(many parts shared on both trucks) are very tough trucks, all ya really need is a larger bumper available from RPM and your set to beat teh snot out of it. the Stampede is a Monster truck and the Rustler is a Stadium Truck, both can be bought Ready to Run with painted bodys
i was at radio shack the other day looking at the rc trucks. i want to buy one and wnat one of the bigger ones. i also want a chevy body.....all they had was a big avalanche. it is $100 and looks like it would be fun just to play around with (michigan snow and what not). does anyone know about this truck, would it be worth it? thanks
