that would be a good start. you could find a nice used car and maybe get some hopups already on it for about the same price. if you want to go new, it's not a bad deal.

Brian, I think you must have missed the details of that auction - it's a massive rip off - that is an old i-series that we sold for $105 w/ free shipping, and they are charging $149.99 + $16.75 shipping! We have the new i-series 2 for $129.99 w/ free shipping:

Saman2014, this is a very bad deal and I'd be very suspicious of that seller based on that one auction.

Saman, I SERIOUSLY recommend this car.

MA-010 Calsonic skyline readyset.

Most cars you purchase as a readyset will have a body that won't work so well for racing. The calsonic skyline is a great racing body, its the same as that picture I sent you except blue. You can save money by purchasing this set and not having to buy a race body. Another plus about the body is that it can be easily dremeled to fit a 98mm chassis, which is what I recommend you do. Also, a laydown crystal adapter is not needed for it. Furthermore it comes with a spoiler mounted on it that is interchangeable with other mini-z spoilers, so you can choose what kind of ridiculous wing you want to put on it. Yeah, i know you like that stuff.

I agree with Mini-Z. Check used auctions or get new from the store here. That deal isnt good at all. The main board of the car isnt very good, compared to most of the stock boards of AM frequency cars that are around these days. There are no brakes, and the FETs arent as good.

I would advise to look for 3010 fets, the I-series come with 3004 fets (without brake). Most cars sold used now will have the 3010 fets, which can handle more powerful motors than the 3004 fets.

Do you already have a 27mhz AM transmitter?

yes, I missed that,

I would personally steer clear of the i-series, they are very prone to glitching and typically sale for alot less.

thanks D, for correcting me, I'd hate to point someone in the wrong direction.

you should pass on this and keep looking !
