Digging up my old RC cars from the 80's seems to have sparked a desire to get a modern, entry level RC car to have some fun with. But there are heaps to choose from and not really sure what to get. I'm looking to spend about $200-400 (aussie dollars that is ), something that comes already built and something that I can enjoy on different terrain; grass, dirt, road etc etc. Initially I was looking at the Traxxas Rustler, and might extend the budget to get the VXL version. But before spending money, want to see what other options I have in that price range and how they compare. So any suggestions welcome

Thanks.

Yes it certainly is a hard choice!

There are So Many options.

The rustler is a good unit, I bought a second hand one and fitted a brushless set up. But getting the motor kv right is proving a bit difficult. And tyre/ wheel choice to suit as well. I find it a bit difficult to justify the price of OEM wheels and tyre as they're more than what I paid for it and considering the amount I use it.

But I may have to bite the bullet and get some and see if they suit the set up I currently have better than the wheel/tyres I'm running ATM.

If you have a track near by, go have a look and ask lots of questions.

For general 'bashing' I'd lean towards 4wd.

Everybody loves RC cars. I buy them for my children, and we play with the whole family. It is a pity that they are so expensive and not everyone can afford them.

My son had wanted a radio-controlled car for a long time, but I didn't want to give him a cheap one, and there was no money for an expensive one. Once I was advised to use payday loans in pa and I decided to buy him a good toy. The money came on time and I managed to buy a gift. My son was incredibly happy, and I gave the loan the next month.
