Default Turnigy TD10 V2 1/10 Touring Car. Race upgrade Help

Hello everyone, I know this kit has several different names aka sakura but, this is basically the kit I am getting. I am planning to upgrade gradually with ally parts and racing spec electrics. I know I can get a better car but upgarding my first cheap rc is kind of the thrill for me, I wont be selling my 1st ever Rc car. Can anyone give me a list to race spec electric parts ie brushless kit, battery, servo and a balanced gear ratio (spur and pinion) for tight track.

Thank you in advance Darren

Might want to suggest price of the budget for electronics.

I would highly recommend taking a trip to where you plan on racing, and see what is commonly raced, or if there is a limit on the kv, or turns of the motor. This is going to give you more insight on what is better suited than any of us could provide, I might suggest a 3000kv motor where-as all the racers at the track run 6000kv.

One thing for sure though, is you will want a sensored setup, it helps with smoothening out the low rpm power band and id say a necessity if youre looking to race.
As this is a first rc for you, I would suggest to purchase extra parts as you're likely to crash.

I know this isnt very specific, but walking around the pits and getting an idea on what the top cars are running really is the best way to get a judge of what electronics you need, and from there we can make suggestions.

This post is a few months old but maybe I am not too late. Rather than buy a car that you will most likely have to order parts from overseas you might want to consider buying a used losi jrxs pro or if you can find one a jrxs type r. I have both and they are awesome touring cars. Still very much competitive for racing and very tough cars.

hi dodo soup1973 well to help you out a little this might be a little late but the sakura or turnigy touring car as i saw it on a carpet track it was real fast with a hobbywing esc 160A 17.5 Turn motor and savox servo , and also with the
right gearing spur and pinion , the touring cars also must be set up on a set up board ( hudy set up ) for chassis ride height, steering left and right , camber, caster , toe in, toe out and weight of car complete for on carpet racing or asphalt racing some set touring car up with a flexable chassis some with a stiff chassis . or they will not handle well , there are some tracks have different classes like a 21.5 turn class , or 17.5 turn , or faster a 13.5 turn motor class , the batteries you want should be hard case 2s 6000 mah 70 c and up , there are various manufactures turnigy , smc , gen ace, you also need a good lipo charger to do 2 batteries at once and a good radio like a futaba,. or sprectrum , oh yes of course good tools metric allen screw drivers , you can also go to web site sakura touring car manual and parts, and gear chart for final drive ratio and rc competition x for suspension set up or tuning for the chassis , hoped i helped you , from the other side of pond mugey
