Yet Another help me pick first RC car thread
Hello everyone, I was thinking about getting into the hobby and I'm overwhelmed by all the choices and options and whats best for what I want to do. I know there are numerous topics for this same thing, but this one is mine and I hope the information I provide will point me in a good direction.
RC background: I used to fly RC airplanes with Nitro engines, and I have Never used or operated an electric RC anything.
Type of terrain for planned RC use: Short to kinda short grass yards/lawns, rough and semi-smooth pavement, and the occasional dirt and small/packed rocky driveway.
What I want in the RC vehicle: can be upgraded easily, 2.4 radio, atleast 1/10 scale, runs at least 30mph out of the box.
Planned use: Right now just recreational, maybe having some fun with some friends but no serious racing or anything like that.
Budget: I'm trying for something less than $400 to start, would like to hopefully get something $200-$350 range but that can change. But nothing more than $400.
Nitro or Electic: I'm leaning toward electric but i've dealt with nitro airplane motors so it doesn't really matter, I just want a vehicle that will last and run well on whatever is powering it! But I do want to get it to eventually go atleast 50MPH or more
