Micro, where to start?

Hello,

I could not find the correct thread to post in so I hope its ok to start a new one.

I'm looking at getting a Micro RC car.
From my searching these 2 seem to be good options.

1) Kyosho Mini Z range
2) The Losi Micro T Range

What else is available in up 1/24 range?

The criteria I'm using on choosing:
1) Fun to drive
2) Can be driven inside with a tight turning circle
3) Could be driven outside on smooth surfaces.
4) Is durable
5) Is easy and low cost to fix and source parts.
6) Has hop ups for potential future upgrades.

Thanks in advance for you time in giving me your feedback.

Hi 3D,
Are you planning on racing with others? If so, go with the type of cars/trucks they are running to keep things competitive.

Otherwise, go with the car(s) that appeal to you and that the local shops stock parts for. You can find videos of most RC's on store websites and by searching the web.

As to which are fun and durable - that's kind of up to you. I've had good experience with Horizon Hobby's customer service, so you could look at their products.
