Question Looking to buy first R/C help.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi guys,

I was hoping some of you would be able to help me out. I'm new to this kinda thing and I know almost nothing about it. But I'm interested in buying a nitro truck. I want to use it for road, and off road. I would like to spend no more then $300. And I would perfer a used truck. Any suggestions as to what kind I should get? I heard hpi is good but I was told that HSP is terrible. Any help would be great guys. Thanks in advance.

Re: Looking to buy first R/C help.

Just to due popularity and parts support i'd suggest HPI or Traxxas, the model is completely up to you on what you're going to use it for. Be prepared for a steep learning curve and if you're going to buy a nitro, do it locally as they are a PITA to deal with as a newbie if you get one that's not starting.
