Ive got none left nowadays but I used to have a HPI Rush Evo, then a MT2, and Savage SS with an O.S .30 engine. The Savage was monster. It would do about 55mph with that lump. It was a total pig to start though. I spent way too much money on it and sold it for next to nothing...

Always wanted an HPI Baja. The hobby shop I bought the MGT from had one on show. Don't know what to get next to be honest. I like the idea of 'on-road', but it's just not practical. The monster truck has no problems climbing curbs ect, and don't need to run after it to turn it around because it's got reverse.

 

I like the FG monster truck, but with fairly low ground clearance, no reverse and only being 2wd, it would annoy me. :tumble: I might go for a plane or helicopter next, possibly the Thunder Tiger Raptor 90. :D

I'm old school and started off with kyosho nitros, but have tended to stick with the Tamiya's from around 2000 when I was a kid.

 

So I've got a TL-01, witch is far from standard with foam front bumper, mo3 rear, speed tuned gears, full bearings, oil shocks, 19t motor, front antiroll bar, mo3m front hubs, steering knuckles and 2 degree rear uprights and even going to the trouble of making up a hollow carbon prop and shafts to save weight.

Normally coved with another favourite of my youth, a Nissan skyline.

Although just because I can, I've also got a metro 6r4 body for it as well.

6967730904_89d3a1e385_z.jpg

 

 

I haven't fully given up on nitros though and still have a GV pred buggy, that's also far from standard and was part of a job lot I was given to me(but not in the condition pictured) at a garage I once worked at.

 

6950228336_280ec79d27_z.jpg

 

But my faves are the Tamiya m03's, of witch I have 3. One completely standard (except bearings) and mechanical speed controller complete with a replica mini25 body.

 

7644243780_cdb48f4824_z.jpg

 

6226931328_e9d56bbd3f_z.jpg

 

Another with just as many hop-ups as the TL-O1 with the addition of some shiny blue chrome bits with the metallic blue body and the multicolour union jack roof.

 

7396599772_587490a062_z.jpg

 

 

And finally my basher of an mo3 (so I don't feel bad braking the other two), mostly standard expect for the bearings, esc and different springs.

me and my son have some i have a camaro and a tunder tiger eb3 1:8. my son has a classic Tamya and now his first Nitro traxxas truggy very fast bit of kit with 2 stage gearbox.

20130924_215359.jpg
 
 
20130924_215315.jpg

And reverse? ;D
 
thats a traxxas jato right there, 2 speed gearbox, good for 70mph, but no reverse standard.. the tracts t-maxx classic comes with reverse:) not my car but i know about traxxas:)
 
What scale is the tiny buggy, out of interest, 1/12TH?
Its a maverik ion i think... 1/18 scale;)

 

spot on but i think its 1/24 scale but god its a quick little thing. the buggy (thunder Tiger) is a 1/8 and the traxxas is a 1/10. and you you are right its very quick and pops wheelies when going into second gear  ;D

the jatos are brilliant!

I've got the traxxas nitro rustler (the one below yours)... it came with a 2.5 but i blew that engine after a top speed run, so i put in a 3.3, the same as in your jato! and i can't keep the front wheels on the ground! i now zip tie two D batteries to the front of the bumper  :lol:  would be even better if i had a second gear! i had to upgrade the diff to an all metal one as the power from the 3.3 just munches the standard one up! 

its also got some big chunky off road tiers on it at the moment for off road driving:)

 

well in my Thunder tiger i have just put this Novarossi limited edition motor in. not had time to take it out yet but will try and take it out this weekend and run it in.

Would anyone recommend this as a decent starting point?

I would recommend going for something from one of the more known brands as spares are easier to get. Take a look on Modelsport they have a lot of stuff on there

Might be me being blind, but I can't see the brand. :shy: You want a popular model ideally, not a Traxxas monster buggy that every new part has vanished off the face off the earth, such as a Tamiya, Losi, Team Associated, HPI. Why a small electric model? I would go for a 1/5th scale, because they don't require tuning every 2 seconds, and the fuel is much cheaper than nitro. The only downfall is you need a large area to run them. :highfive:  

 

I would advise you not to buy a car, and buy a buggy or monster truck instead. The ground clearance on 1/10 scale cars is shocking. O_O

Yep. You don't want to import, near enough, a full large scale r/c car from America for spares. Honestly, I'm not joking. :lol:

RPM parts (arms etc..) and T Bone bumpers are awesome depending on what buggy/thing you get. T bone bumpers on my e fire storm saved me alot of money as they just bounce!

Is there such a thing as a nitro/petrol RC classic mini? I'm a total newbie with this, but have always wanted one.
