RC Cars

I am looking for an RC car that can go at a decent pace and that is durable and does not cost a fortune

Can somebody point me to the right place to buy one?

Re: RC Cars

Are you looking for gas or battery powered? Generally a hobby shop is your best bet...

Re: RC Cars

If you just want to run it in the house, just go to Radio Shack. They have some pretty decent stuff. Their higher end cars will go ~17 mph.

Re: RC Cars

Why not get one of these? It cost me $20CDN.
It's the size of a matchbox, but it's alot of fun and has a 15 foot range.
Perfect for in the house.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Well, you do have to be careful with it, but it's fairly durable. Radio Shack has accessories, so you can change body styles, put on mags, add spoilers, wider tires and even upgrade the motor/battery. It's addictive.

Re: RC Cars

Back a few years ago, I built one, called BLACKFOOT. I was a big foot fort f-150, it was sick! But, I kept blowing thr rear end. really got me mad, so its been sitting in the box ever since. I remember it being big $$.

For christmas I got a cheapo RC H2, LOL! I was stoked! So I pretty much took that all over the place.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: RC Cars

I got a car off ebay with a heap of spares, and got an absolute bargain, but I was looking for a car I could go racing with, not just a toy to play around the house

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!
