This newbie needs help...

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.

I would have recommended you a Ninco BMW M3 GTR... Because they are fun to drive at any level, don't deslot easily, are robust, have a good motor...

As for the controllers, The Muffin Man is completely right, Parma's are great, and the "ohmage" you have to feel for yourself: I have a 20m home Ninco-track, and I have a 25 Ohm Parma, and my slotbuddy has a 45 Ohm Parma. Well... we love the parma's but I don't like the 45's (feel a bit lame to me) and he thinks the 25 is to tricky... It all depends on your driving style I guess...
