Are you looking for a new sc or are you trying to find what brand the one you have is? If your looking for a new sc a slash would be good to learn off of for someone new in 2wd or even a hpi blitz. If your looking for a 4x4 a slash 4x4 is good but I have also been hearing a lot of good things about the team associated prolite 4x4.

It doesn't seem like anyone is on this forum but you could always check the hobby shops. I know team Valadez for sure sells used rc's and you can also rent a full stock slash to race at speedworld from team Valadez to see if you like it too. You can also try Hal's hobby warehouse to see if they sell used rc's but I'm not too sure. Try giving both of them a call and see what they have in stock.

Rick,

If you don't have any plans this Saturday, come by the track at Speed World (0930-UTC) and I can square you away. Heck, bring your car and run our club race with it. admission fee is on me for your first time. You might end up being satisfied with it. Before you pull the trigger on any cars and zero out your LES, I can answer a lot of your questions and hopefully get you on azimuth. We are located on the west side of town by the Outlet Mall. Plug in 480 Talbot Ave, Canutillo TX 79835 into your GPS. Hit me with a PM and your cell if you prefer to communicate that way.

Hope to see ya Saturday. Just ask for Ron.
