i think this hobby could be as bad to your wallet as headphones
. I know nothing about RC cars, but i see guys with 4 foot long rc cars which go so mad fast, that they have to drive them on real roads. I dont know how much they cost, but i'm sure their expensive.

The other ones that are fun are the RC speed boats. They are a little easier for the novice as mistakes do not result in a crash. All you need is a quiet expanse of water and you are in business.

I love how the wrx looks in real life, but it just doesn't look right squashed. . .

I also considered getting the rx7 model, but it also doesn't look right to me.


And hey, the supra comes with a 2.2 motor!

I spent $35 shipped. This one will be used for scaring my sister's cat and racing around my desk.

bootman: you found some of the Digi Q cars. I thought of buying one, with their proportional steering, but if you look at videos of them, there is a delay between turning the wheel and the car turning. Its been confirmed by people that have them. Also, you can upgrade practically EVERYTHING on char-gs, which makes it all so cool.


www.toyeast.com

That's where I ordered mine. $25 for the complete supra set! $9 shipping.

lol, I know!


Heck, if I really like this, I might end up getting a Mini Z car in a few months. (I've spent the last 2 days on rc car forums.
)

If you see the videos, these cars are FAST.

My son has been into RC cars for the last couple of years, both electric and nitro. I indirectly fund his hobby.


If you pursue this, and continue your headphone/audio hobbies, I highly suggest that you start developing a taste for ramen noodles now.

I filled my shoppin cart at toy east and then came to my sense and closed the browser. That was yesterday morning. Then I did it again this morning. Finally after seeing online video of the cars racing around a breakfast table (from an australian TV commercial, can't remember URL) I placed the order.

If you lot had just stopped talking about them I would have resisted, really.

LOL. Yeah, it's probably not a bad idea to know how to survive off Ramen Noodles . . . considering the circumstances.
