Decent nitro cars?

Decent nitro cars?

Postby Lord Vondant » Thu Jan 27, 2011 12:31 am

I didnt have a clue where to place this so i thought here. Can any1 direct me to decent affordable starter nitro car as i presume there are some on the forums who will have used them. i had been looking at HPI, but all my local model shops have said if i developed a fault, theyd refuse to help becuase they touch/work with HPI. I am now considering thunder tiger, but can any1 help and perhaps say if another brand is better, and/or if they know perhaps a better one. My budget for my first nitro car is £350. (thats for car, and nothing else,)

Thanks very much..

No such thing as a good nitro if you ask me! Go briskness mate. BSD EP8 or traxxas DNase brushless. Faster than nitro, less hassle, caan be used anywhere without noise complaints!

all of my nitros are Tamiyas... TG10, TGX, Nitrage.
Except for one, a Neo T21Pro.

and I have to agree, nitro sux. brushless is sooo much better.
faster, cleaner, quieter, reliable... better!
