As some of you know I've only been around this level of the game for about 3 weeks. I need to get some stuff so that I can get racin'. Here is SA we do not have a big selection of brands but it's not too bad import it ourself.

Now, what will be a good car to start with on a plastic track. I'm not talking about record breaking lap time because at the moment I can hardly make around the track without derailing. I want something sporty but robust but not a rally car, at least not yet. I hear that Ninco are are very fast down straight but don't stay on the track on corners.

Is Parma controllers any good to start with? What ohmage (is that the correct word/spelling) should I look at? I know you get the SCX controllers with the interchangeble resistors, why not use that? Does someone know of any SA manufacturers that I can contact for a controller?

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for now.

hi Mampara welcome to this mad world, my thoughts for what they are worth is not to get hung up on one type of car or other as you say you are new to the hobby, look more closly at controlers, ask your club mates to loan you diferent ohmages, find one that you can drive most cars with some degree of control, they range from 15 to arond 60 ohms, stick with that till you get more of a "feel" for racing, this way you only spend a few £,s $,s if you go buying dozens of cars you will find you wont use most of them. you will find you get consistant, then start looking at diferent cars, hope that helps mac p
