just looking to stick to the 1/10th electric mobiles at first, just to get me back into it

starting from scratch - so i'm basically looking for a full running setup before i go & start dabbling in other bits & bobs

i'm buying it for the opposite reason - to stop me blowing money on my car!!

No I drive an RS5, the completely carbon car, currently driving a team car, so its the very latest of everything, they are such a good car, nearly a kilo lighter than anything else, out of the corners its just so quick, but refuse to drive it in the wet or damp, just doesnt like it when theres any sort of loss of traction
