    Nitro Rc Cars

    Looking at getting another one as my last one was around 10-12 years ago, but didnt really "get into it" it was a toy when i was a kid.

    Can anyone suggest any good online shops where i could look at, seen a few already and looking at spending as little as possible to get back into it then upgrade at a later date, spotted a few at around £90...

    Ideally id like a build it yourself kit so i can get back into the know how, and either 1/8th or 1/10th.

    Many Thanks

    In terms of nitro's are you talking about onroad or offroad as the latter won't be any good at all for £90 and you'll spend that in parts in no time.

    Good idea to get a build it yourself one as in mine and my mates experience a few years back you spend 75% of your time sitting around fixing the damn things....lol! Ours were off road ones though so they did take a fair amount of abuse, great when they're working but that isn't much of the time it seemed!

    On road though, can't fault them, they're quick and run and run

    i was originally looking at On road ones but the more ive looked im taking a liking to the off road models and looking at where i live off road would probably make more sense as there are some brilliant fields and dirt roads locally
