I have been in the R/C car hobby since I was 8 years old and I can tell you that that is not worth it! Get an HPI Nitro RS4 and you can buy many different bodies for the car. The cost of the car after buying the gas engine that it needs and the radio is around $600. Is that car even gas???? If i't isn't it's definately NOT worth it...even if it was gas. Search for HPI in Yahoo or something (i forget the site, but I think it's www.hpiracing.com) ...I've got an RC10GT gas truck and I've clocked it with a radar gun going 56 MPH.....but can also be geared to go faster. The HPI Nitro RS4 will go aroun 70 MPH if geared right, and around 60 MPH if you want more torque and acceleration. They are also 2-speed's and sound really cool when the gas engine is shifting!

I am looking to purchase this (see link below) Bmw RC car. Has anyone had any experience with it? it is worth $600?


Thanks
Ben
