Sweet. How about a clay/hard-packed dirt track?
Yeah not really a fan of Tamiya. The LRP caught my eye because $200 RTR isn't bad and seems to be a cheap way to enter some casual touring car racing.If anything, the car pictured is closer to a TC3 (the one pictured is shaft drive, TC4 & TC5 are belt driven) but with a plastic composite chassis. Didn't know LRP made cars though. I thought they only made motors and speed controllers.
As for touring cars, HPI Sprint 2's are a decent entry level car, Tamiya TA-05's are also pretty good (avoid the VDF though, its a bit shit).
I have the older SC10 which has pin wheels, but there is a hex kit available.Proline sells them pre-mounted on as well, if you have the right hexes:
But in the long run, it'd be cheaper to go with bead-locs.
What I like: Longitudinal mount engine + 4WD + 1/5th scale = win, is 4WD, looks pretty tough.awesome
