    It depends if you want on road or off road. If you want off road, I think most would agree that the volcano is a good starter.

    I personally like the buggies better...I've always liked them low...they handle a lot better...but you don't have the ground clearance when you're bashing.

    RE: noob to rc

    Well if you dont want to spend more than $250 then you should get a Volcano SV at a minimum. If you are realling to spend around 270 then get the Volcano SV pro. It comes with a whole bunch of upgrades installed on it. 259 on www.Topspeedtoys.com. But then you would need to buy a starter kit and all that stuff too.

    RE: noob to rc

    Redcats are one of the most affordable brands in nitro RC, The volcano STX is still $160, but id spring an extra $20 the SV, because it's probably more durable (its the latest Volcano). Personally, Id go for the SV pro, cause its got alot of aluminium parts, but if your looking to not spend alot, definately the Volcano SV

    RE: noob to rc

    Popo i was trying to figure that out myself, but i can assure you mark (Topspeedtoys) is a great buisness person and obviously has some great prices going on right now. If im not mistaken i think theyre having a sale. I would get the Volcano SV. Its not too expensive and its got a few more upgrades than does the Volcano STX. I personaly dont much like buggies for various reasons and think trucks are just all around much more fun.

    Himotos are basically the same as redcats.
    Yes, Redcats are RTR, so they all come with a radio
