This has been discussed a few times before. So a search and you should find some threads.

Found nothing in search fonction, what i asked is opinions....
should take you the same amount of time to tell me your opinion than tell me to search.


I just hate when i ask something and receive a response like that. No offense.

I was thinking that too, since im may be not able to get 73 mph everywhere also..

This revo look hot! Seem unstopable.


Im wondering if the fuel is easily available too?
Can you tell me about remote range?

I know nothing about them but always wanted one one since im like 10.
Im 26 now and may be time to get a good one.

Thx

Not trying to offend. I just know that the question was being disscussed a week or so ago. Alot of people here have nitro powered cars and trucks and figured you could search thru the posts in the meantime.

get the Revo, excellent all around capabilities. the cars are generally waaaaaay faster than the trucks, but they are near impossible to control. especially once you hit second gear. check EBay for deals though

nitro is fairly easy to get. Any hobby shop that carries RC cars/planes/boats/helicoters will have it/be able to order it.

if you are getting into RC you need to wander through a www.towerhobbies.com catalog.

Remote range depends on the remote. With fully charged batteries they will go far enough that they get hard to see.
