Since we have many people come in asking about cars,I thought I'd start a thread with all information someone might need when entering the hobby.

First of all,read through the topics pertaining to cars in the RC India Wiki

After this,you might have some more questions.Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Whenever you want to buy a hobby grade car,you need to be clear on what you want to do. i.e. race,bash,both.

You have to decide whether you want a nitro or electric powered car.There is a thread which discusses the 'nitro vs electric' topic.In short,nitros require a significant amount of maintenance and are decently fast.They have the realism factor which you don't get with electric cars.With electric cars,on a brushless and lipo setup,you almost have instant power on hand.Electrics require comparatively less maintenance than nitros but do not offer the realism that nitros offer.


Once you get this right,the next thing to look at is the budget.We have a variety of cars for people with various budgets.Then again,entering the hobby takes a significant amount of time and money.

Once you have that sorted out,you need to take a look at the types of cars and start deciding on brands.The most important thing is that you have to do some research on what you want to buy.It helps a lot later on.You can ask some people who have the car about their experience with the car.

This is a small guide as to what you should do while buying a car.If I missed out on anything,please add it. Smiley

Hope this helps a beginner.

Ahh...... foresight helped Grin

Well, to answer your question, how much experience do you have with cars? The Vorza is one mean machine. On the 'I want' list of many people(including me). It can be ridiculous for a total noob on 4s itself. Since you're in Mumbai, you'll get some help for sure. I'll tell you that racing an E-buggy is gonna be hard when you see the kinda racers we have in the class. Not saying that you shouldn't or overrating the others. Just that it'll take you some time to get accustomed to a vorza. But if you can get one and think that you can handle one, power to you Grin Thumbs Up

IF you can get two cars, I suggest you go for the slightly lower end one. Gives you more experience. You can get going with a Vorza too. Do keep in mind that it comes with a 27 MHz radio out of the box. If I were you, I'd sell the stocker or just keep it and get a 2.4 GHz radio. You'll need batteries and a decent charger. It takes upto 6s but I suggest you stick to 4s.

If you go ahead and buy a Vorza, I doubt you'll regret it. (If you are patient and learn your car). It is not a totally race-bred vehicle like the Ve8 but a durable car with the genes of a racer.

So in short, if you think you can handle one, go for it Grin. Be patient and take your time to learn stuff about your car. If you do it, you'll love it.

i know jumping to a big car would cause problems but i won't get money from home to buy a basic car plus a advance car so was thinking why not buy a HPI Vorza directly because i have seen it race in Radico sports arena panvel and its my personal favourite..i would really dedicate my time to learn controlling it..

and i don't know what is the price of vorza in India as i saw on ebay it was less then i heard..would appreciate all your help on this...

and about the batteries i will collect money to buy a good range radio and the batterties.. Smiley

Last time I checked, a Vorza was going for around Indian Rupees 38,000 minus batteries.

Why dont you take a look at the Nexx8?.. It comes with 2.4 radio and 1700kv motor. The ESC comes with Tunning card. It can take up to 2 2S lipo.. Very well balanced and light weight. It costs about Rs.28500. Battery & charger is not included.. Gandhar has seen in action. ESC comes with 6months replaceable warranty.. Hongnor Jammin  has 100% support in India..

Flight Max 5000 Mah battery is available with me as well..

Ehh........ "batteries important for torque"....... Kind of but not really. Lipos do provide more punch compared to NiMH's. In short, batteries provide power Tongue.

Not sure how much the radio and lipo combo will cost you. Ask Siddharth. He should give you a better picture. If the Maxamps lipos he suggests are too expensive, go for the Tritech lipos. I've heard that they're pretty good.

PS: The Nexx8 is a pretty decent car.

See this Video - Nexx8 vs Hpi Vorza.. Do your research on rctech.net as well.. Later on if you may want to go for Tekin motor combo for extreme performance..

Sorry i missed the Short Course Truck (SCT)-- I felt my Jammin SCRT handled on par with buggy when i drove it for fun.. I have not driven it on track yet, so can't really comment.. Yes, SCT is a way better handler than Monster Truck (MT)..

Well, lipos are more powerful compared to NiMH's. They have a few rules. Read all of this      

You won't have many doubts after you read that Wink Read the basics and information pertaining to lithium ploymer ( Lipo, Lipoly) batteries.

Wow.. didnt know people were using this forum to market products.

@parth: Its a myth that e-buggies are only for advanced drivers etc. The only problem i see with them is that they are better suited for tracks. I don't really use any of them for bashing. A MT on the other hand can be used for bashing and also for track use. Monster is the most popular category in India. SCT trucks have a dedicated class for racing. They give you the best of both worlds.

There are multiple brands that offer good products, do your research and pick one.

Go with what you like and what fits in your budget. Come down to the track once it opens to try out the different cars and then take a call.

Like i said earlier, dont let the beginner aspect decide the car you pick. Since there is proper support in India even a 8 year old with no experience can buy the best rc car and not have any problems.

The track is closed due to rains. Should be functional october first week.

I heard that the pre- ordered ones would reach their destinations in about a week or so. When will it come to India? Siddharth will have the answer Wink

PS: HPI just upgraded the radio system in their Vorza. Its going to come with a 2.4 GHz system. Parth, you might want to take a second look at the Vorza again Smiley

Hi Parth,
             I too am in the process of deciding on an RC truck. As of now its E-maxx brushless, HPI Savage flux and Stampede brushless thats under consideration. But I recenlty came across the thunder tiger MT4 G3 and oh man I am floored. That thing is so very stable and durable for high speed and bashing. I know not many people would suggest you this vehicle which in fact has perplexed me as well Head Scratching. But most of those opinions I guess come from people who havnt used the TT MT4. If you look at videos by people who own both E-maxx and MT4, you can see how much they appreciate the latter. Check this and related video out-



and this-



Also see here,

http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132932

And also the 'Basher approved' review from Bigsquid-

http://www.bigsquidrc.com/thunder-tiger-mt4-g3-18-electric-monster-truck-review/

            I have come to understand that the MT4 is way better than e-maxx and as good as the savage flux hp. Would like to know what you guys think about this.
            Happy researching. Do let us know when you finally buy one. I am eager to know too... Grin

Ehh, if I remember right, none of us said that it was a bad car.

If you can get it, go for it!! I've seen Joe driving his and it surely is an awesome car. Its basically an MT with a center diff and truggy parentage.

I wouldn't blindly follow everything that BSRC says..... But with the MT4G3, they are bang on!


The first video clearly shows that it needs heavier damping out of the box... It feels too springy.... But that doesn't matter when you're bashing. If you're racing, a small tune up can turn it into a beast.

frankly,emaxx dosent stands a chance b/w mt4 and flux. For bashing flux is better, and for racing mt4 is better.
IMO,mt4 is the latest rival for eRevo which 's a race proven electric monster.

MT4 is way better because its a truggy and is based on the ST-1, one of the toughest cars from TT. But it suffers from the TT image and RTR packaging where brands like HPI and Traxxas have an advantage.

i agree to ajo. TT needs to improve on marketing and packaging their products. Plus they need to have more of that RTR factor.

Hey fellow RCians, i am a new member of this club and want to build an onroad car(more of a drift car). I have a basic 500 buck 458 Italia and want to upgrade it to run fast and turn better. But i don't want to spend too much on it as i am planning to take it slowly so that i can learn how its actually done. So please suggest me some places in Bangalore where i can pickup some affordable upgrades for it. Thanks in advance.
