    ECX Torment 4x4 1/18

    Hi guy I'm new to rc and I want to buy an affordable off-road rc. I want something affordable, strong, that has enought power to have fun and mainly, a good aftermarket support ( hop-ups parts). I'll mainly use it for bashing. I thought of the Ecx torment 1/18 because it's inexpensive and looks strong ( nylon composite chassis). Any output about this little car? Those it have a good aftermarket support? If not, any car you would recomand me? Thanks

    (sorry if my english is bad I live in Quebec and we talk french around here)

    the ecx 1/10 models are generally well liked. durable, fairly simple to work on, and there are some decent upgrades for them.
    I haven't owned the 1/18, but im sure it is a decent model.
    Personally, I recommend 1/10 scale models. They are just more capable on more types of surfaces. even a 4wd 1/18 truck will have some trouble on grass or sand or very loose dirt or pebbles. But a 2wd 1/10 has much better ground clearance and they are also usually easier to jump.
    But, if you have a very small yard, or maybe want to make a small RC track, then 1/18 scale might work well for you.
    Watch a bunch of youtube videos of any model you consider buying, it can help a lot to see if you like how a model performs.

    1/10 scale will be much easier and more fun to start out with. IMO 1/18 scales are a pain to work on. They are a blast inside a gym or other large indoor space but you are pretty much limited to hard surfaces. Something like a traxxas rustler will have nearly unlimited parts support and huge aftermarket support too. They are tons of fun, very upgradable, and will last a long time. It will grow with you as you get better.
