it depends on what kind of money you want to spend, you can spend $100 and get something great for bashing, like a tamiya tt01. or you can spend $350 on the TC5 and get a pure race bread machine. its all in the way you want to use it. then we start talking motors, electrics, all that business is where the real money is.

i ll dissagree, for 330.00 you can get the CEN CT5 RTR. GREAT car, very adgile and can be a serious competitor if properly setup. runs like its on rails when done right, easy to control, easy to make drift or Not drift.

the nx-15 motor has been a treat to run/use. excellent for the cost of the motor. i have about 3 gallons plus thru my nx 15 on the CT5 and it just keeps going strong!

you could even get a used tt-01 or tl-01 for 75 shipped on ebay.

Your question is kind of vague. How much money do you want to spend? What do you intend to use the car for? Are you going to race it? Are you going to bash around on the street?

There are lots of nice cars on ebay if you want to save some money. Just use caution when shopping.

I love ebay... you can always find good parts and rollers cheap on ebay... there is always someone who needs diaper money and has to sell a toy!
