If so I would really recommend the regular miniZs. 4 of those at 150 a piece on a 200 dollar rcp track split 4 ways really is the way to go in my opinion but let me know more of your thoug process or or rationale.
Thanks for the comments. you have it right more or less. I don't have any friends that are into the hobby where I'm at, but I wanted to get a couple cars and a track myself. As far as the track goes, I'm going to build one. I'm pretty decent at building things, so that shouldn't be a problem. I do like the Mini-Z's and I was going to go with them, until I found the D-Nano. I think the smaller the better as far as RC cars goes.
My first though was that I want 1/64 size cars because the smaller the car the better and bigger the track I can make (garage is only so big...). I can't find anything that good at 1/64 size though; just cheap little RC cars. I want something with better quality and better steering.
I believe the Mini-z's are cheaper than the D-Nano's. So I'm torn between cheaper price and bigger car or higher price and smaller car. The size of the car will correlate to the size and layout of the track.
I'm leaning more towards D-nano's but they are pricey. I might only be able to buy 2 of them and hope that friends will want to get in on the hobby and get their own.
I appreciate any advice.
I noticed that the D-Nano's on Minirc.com are around $156 dollars. ON the Kyoshoamerica.com site they are around $180 to $220 ish. Why such a big price difference? I started this thread because I wan'ted to get some advice from people who have experience with the D-nano rc cars.
Another question, is there a better or cheaper place to get the transmitter? On MiniRC.com it is $128. With the car and transmitter I'm looking at $300 roughly after tax...
