    Looking for another RC...

    Well, ive had a Redcat Caldera for a few months, and I already want another one! I would like to get an on-road touring car, electric, and would just be bashing on a road behind my house. Would be willing to pay around 300$ for it. Any suggestions?

    RE: Looking for another RC...

    HPI Sprint 2 Sport or Flux, anything Tamiya... are you looking to drift? Any particular type of on-road car? Kit or RTR?

    Thanks

    Chek out the Ofna GTP2e or Late model dirt oval and one of the Hobbywing ezrun systems. You might have to stretch your budget a little but you can put one together for under $400. Well worth it! 1/8 scale car make much better parking lot bashers than 1/10

    RE: Looking for another RC...

    I've looked at the GTP2e, and i like what I see. I'm not too sure what size ESC/Motor combo I should get, and would i have to spend the money to get a 2S/3S Lipo, when i already have a decent Ni-Mh charger, and I could just buy an 8.4v 5000mah Nimh, or do I have to go Lipo?

    You don't HAVE go LIPO... but you SHOULD go lipo! You will need at least 4s and up to 6s. check out the hobbywing/EZrun 120-150 amp ESCs and 40mm-44mm motors in the 1800kv-2400kv range

    RE: Looking for another RC...

    that would all work pretty well accept for the batteries. your going to want somewhere closer to 5000Mah and 30C is on the low end but will work. I would go for atleast 40C 5000mah bateries. everything else looks pretty good. Just don't over gear it and you should be good!
