1:10 scale electric 2WD stadium truck- need 2
I my 6 year old son and I would like to give RC cars a try. The LHS sponsors 1:10 scale indoor races on carpet in the winter and there are classes for 2WD electric trucks/buggies. They run 1:18 scale also but the 1:10 scale seems more universal and better suited for running outside in the grass and dirt in the summer. My son seems to prefer the look of the trucks.
I am not sure of his long term interest level (nor mine for that matter as I am an aircraft guy) so we would like to start out with some used equipment.
Knowing that just one truck is no fun so I am looking to find two trucks that are as similar as possible. Certainly the same brand/model car so we can have one stock pile of replacement parts. I know that makes my search more difficult but I thought I would post it anyway.
I can pay cash or I have some electric planes and helis, brushless motors, ESCs, etc. I can trade.
I will give a list of my preferences just to throw them out there. I know I won't find the perfect two set-ups at a price my wife will allow (hence the used request) but we will see what comes up.
1. Brand- from the limited amount of research I have done it seems Losi and Associated are good widely available and recommended brands so I will stick with either of those.
2. I would prefer to get 2.4 ghz radios because of the huge benefits they provide regarding channels. My son and I went to the races last weekend and it sure seemed to be a hassle to impound transmitters, etc for those that used the "old" technology.
3. I would prefer brushless motors/esc. Castle Creations to be specific. I tried to use a brushed car motor in a heli a couple years ago and hated the maintenance required. If I were to be really specific I would list a Mamba Max 5700 setup as a preference.
As I said, I don't expect to find everything as listed but I thought I would at least put it out there and see what happens. Any or all of the above would be great. A rolling chassis (or two), 2.4ghz radio, BL motor/esc as separates would be fine also.
PM or e-mail me if you have anything to offer. THANKS!
