Default Getting back into racing

I would just like to know what would be a good stadium truck or buggy to get back into racing with.
Im not for sure if i want to race stadiums or buggys. Any help is appreciated.

Also i was looking to get into 1/18 racing any ideas for that too?

Go to your local hobby shop and see which one they have parts for. Parts support will be important in racing, sucks being out of a race because you crashed in an earlier heat and you have to wait for parts to show up in the mail.

To add to the aboved list, for a stadium truck, I would say Hpi Firestorm too. Any of those 4 companies you'll do fine with providing your hobbby shop stocks parts.


EDIT: oh, I forgot to add, if your hobby shop isn't the same one as where you'll be racing don't let them talk you into a Traxxas Rustler as a racer. It would take alot to get one competitive with the others.
