    depends on what u want. if u wanna race then u have to pick a class. if you just wanna rip around the streets and play with it in gravel pits and stuff then your open to choices. nitro can be a real pain in the ass unless you have people around to help u, which you do. i reccomend the hpi nitro mt2 stadium truck. its slower speed makes it great for a beginner nitro user, plus its a simple layout w/ 4wd and a sealed eletronics case. i own 2 of them, so i approve

    oh, nitro rc racing cars...
    well, i've got two...
    one got smashed, very painful, was an alley race, and a big garbage tin felt over it... it was very expensive, was almost 200 bucks a year ago...
    was the 8 wonder of rc technology...
    but I got another one free for the warranty... (it was an accident, and i was very pissed with the guys at the shop, so I said a couple of things, made a call, and voila, new rc car!) but now the trouble is that a week ago it got broken, and now it wont turn right or legt (i think it was something with the steering axis...)

    maybe the steering servo is stripped out. ive had issues where i heard the servo moving, but the wheels werent. turned out that the bellcrank was stripped out from the servo and was just turning inside it. only way to figure out why it doesnt steer is to take apart the steering assembly and see whats wrong

    well, i've dissembled it, and its

    messed up
    it think it was an overload or a malfunction, it has some circuits melt down(the rubber is...melt) the servo is...(how do you say when something had an electric/something else shock that leaves something unusable)
    i think this is serious, may be an electric/gas failure? like a leak? or shortcircuit?
    well the other parts are fine (the back wheels axis, some electrical parts, the antenna, but, the steering and most circuis are fucken)
