for £120 its good

but if somthing breaks then it will be hard to get hold of parts .etc

i my self have a nitro hpi rush evo u can get hold of every little part 4 it

but mine is a buggy which i paid £200 for

there is a street race car hpi check the link

this 1 is the best in my opinion its fast and dual gears ..lol

now this could cost £200 - £250 easy brand new

but if u gona get 1 go for the world leaders in nitro racing wich is hpi

and this car is awsome and sounds like a beast

very fast u will need a huge car park .etc if u want to drag race it!

this car is rebuildable from scratch

every part u can get hold of easy / upgrade parts available

i got a local nitro hobby shop near me

been playing with these for years
plus won a few buggy races.....lol

I am experienced with these things. I would go with one of the big brands to assure spares availability.

Looks like a monster!


Agreed with everyone on the parts front though. They can be easy to lose control of sometimes so if anything is damaged, parts might be a problem or if you ever want to upgrade it...

I got my son one a few years back, throttle stuck on and it smacked it's way up the street, lol.

Great fun, can break your legs if it hits you.

Anyways I screwed the carb settings and have never found the time to work out what they should be, tip don't fiddle with the carb, lol.
