HBX's have breaking problems. I've never heard of the second one.

Yeah, Tamiyas are more expensive, but they will last you long, long time.

Take the Lancer...
There Good Value for money !! I had one and Loved it... its good for Rally,Street Race and drift..

The Lancer is a HBX TL-01 which means you can use the Tamiya TL-01 parts for spares.. So if you do break something, its easy to repair..


That Other weird looking thing is a Pan car chassis and I am not sure you will be able to get spares..


If Your just looking for Cheap thrills and are not looking into serious competition then the Lancer is the Key...

If You wanna start looking at competing, then I would look at the Tamiya TT-01...

Your not going to find an RC car that offers better Value for money then the HBX Lancer...
Its Hobby Spec at a Toy Spec price...
