ready 2 go
its called "rtr" (ready-to-run)





You will probably be able to get a pretty good drifting car for around $200. I have heard the tl-01 is good for drifintg because its not to expensive. All you need after that is some PVC or ABS for tires and then you can drift.

If you save up enough money......Go for an Associated TC3.

I agree completely. Having owned several touring cars (electric tc3, nitro tc3, RS4 2 electric and Nitro RS4 3 Type SS) I can tell you that the Associated cars are the best reasonably inexpensive vehicles. Not to mention the fact that even the "racer" kit for the TC3 has ball diffs, and with some minor work could be made into a VERY competitive racer if you choose to go that route later. But the ball diffs and overall quality of the car are what make me say that TC3 is the only way to go for an electric 4wd touring car.

You can find em used for reasonably cheap, and even used they are a far better car than any new Tamiya.

Side note: I don't mean to keep bashing tamiya, there is nothing wrong with them, but they really aren't even close to associated or HPI.
