If I were you I'd avoid cheap 1/5 scale stuff, the quality is lacking and the performance is less than stellar. You REALLY get what you pay for in the 1/5 scale side of things. If you want a good on road check out a new or used (but in good condition) FG Sportsline.

Also, I'm moving this thread to the giant scale forum, this off topic forum is for discussion of non RC related stuff.
