    RE: Looking to get into racing nitros

    So long as your interested in exotic European chassis', take a look at the Serpent chassis' too:
    http://www.serpent.com/cars/

    Available at A-main Hobbies:
    http://www.amainhobbies.com/advanced...rpent&x=14&y=8

    RB Concepts makes awesome engines:
    http://www.rbproducts.com/

    Also available at A-main Hobbies:
    http://www.amainhobbies.com/advanced...ds=rb+products

    Nova Rossiand Nova Mega engines are great. RB Concepts engines are b@d@$$.

    KO Propo radios are just like the formentioned cars. Super cool. Hard-to-get support.

    Here is the KO Propo America website:
    http://www.kopropo.com/america/index.php

    The cascading menu-style and ergonomic adjustments on the KO radios are very user-friendly, IMO.
    But, you won't find any extra receivers, in-stock, at your local hobby shop. And, you may not be able to order any, either.

    Β*I did a little research on the 4pl, and alot of people are saying its very easy to crack the stopper behind the steering wheel.Β*
    have you had any experience with theΒ*Ko propo Eurus EX10? That looks like a pretty nice radio.
    KO Propo stuff is also top notch.

    RE: Looking to get into racing nitros

    What about servos? What are the best servos for racing? Probably looking for some high-torque ones with steel gears?

    RE: Looking to get into racing nitros

    Now there's a can of worms...the 'best' servos for racing...that depends who you ask.

    Some will say you need a 333oz-in hitec with karbonite gears. Others may say you need the 440 oz-in Savox with Titanium gears and an alloy case. They would all be wrong. What you actually need is a good quality metal geared servo with torque in the region of 200oz-in and a speed rating of .16 or less for 60* at 6v. My personal recommendation is the XP DS1015, I have 7 of them, and they have all been flawless. They are super strong, super fast and super reliable. I'm sure there are others that fit that description, but few do so for the same money, despite not being a cheap servo, it is good value at 90 bucks. To be honest, as long as you are over 200oz-in of torque and faster than .16 at 6v, you will be fine whatever you choose.

    Those to whom budget does not matter, seem to usually go for KO-Propo or Futaba servos, naturally since they are the most expensive brands.

    Can of worms .... LOL

    Ordering from a half-dozen, differentonline vendors is a can-of-worms.

    Stick to one or two vendors, before you spend a quarter of your budget on shipping!

    Did you end up getting a modded ("clocked") P5 or a stock one?

    I can't say enough good things about the Kyosho 1/8 buggies...even the lower end versions are tough as nails in my experience.
