I have an Xray XT8 and XB8 now, both are top quality off-road trucks that hardly ever break. I'm looking to get very durable street car for racing locally, on asphalt. We use cones to make the track but for the most part not too technical, track size within 60 ft from end to end.
The local guys have 2 sizes, 1/8 and 1/10.
I have found a lot of 1/10 but I'm more interested in the 1/8 size. I have looked at the Kyosho Inferno GT2's and they look ok. For 1/10 I like the Xray (surprise). I am going to stick with rubber tires.
1. What are the best models for 1/8 street racing cars?
2. Is the Kyosho Inferno GT and GT2 durable? Any cons??
3. If I was to consider 1/10 scale, what are some of the best models? I see the CEN has one that is fast, but is it durable? I know Xrays are highly tune able and durable, but any other models to consider?
I try to get high quality kits to minimize repair time, and my buggy and truggy are both the most durable trucks on the track, and I have collided with a 35lbs 1/5 scale more then once. The guys are still waiting for it to break, they have resorted to bashing my truck but that ends up breaking theirs
Since I'm completely new to street RC cars, I just need some direction in what is good vs something that is crap, what should I stay away from?? I have bought crap before and I would rather not go through that again.
I found the sticky thread after I posted, but any new ones to add? What about 1/8 scales? I would be interested in a pro level kit.
Pro level Kits (random order)
1. HPI R40
2. Kyosho V-one RRR
3. Nitro TC3 Factory Team
4. Mugen MTX4
5. Ofna CD3 Pro
Thanks for any input you have!!
