When I started(approx 2 years ago,it was to get my son out and about a bit more,and i only wanted to join in for the fun),I bought everything for 50 from Ebay,car,batteries,basic charger,transmitter and even some spares.Steady replacements along the way,countersunk chassis ect ect.Ive just done my 2nd week with single cell LiPo and 10T brushless,excellent performance and no drop in performance as the meeting progresses.I would definately recommend this to anyone without hesitation.Of course if your local rules say youve got to use the G2 can motor then you have no choice-with ours its charge and GO GO GO!!!:drool:
