      I was planning on getting the micro rs4 kit but i recently saw the xray m18 and don t know which one to get. Which one would you recommend or if you had the money which one would you get.

      Micro Rs4: Micro Rs4

      M18: M18

      Thats your opinion not mine. Even though i do like offroad cars and getting an e-maxx I also want something different like a micro rs4 or a m18, maybe even a mini-t.

      Haha, everybody’s opinion is valued here – ergo its a chat/discussion site!! 🙂

      HPI mRS4 was the first 4WD 1/18th out… works
      well but is a couple of yrs on market now.
      Its decently priced too.

      Xray M18 definitely looks cute (TC3? EvoIII?)
      and will spike the ‘shaft’ debate… but as with
      all things Xray, it don’t look cheap.

      Losi’s little 1/18 2WD truck is darned cute too,
      but ain’t that tempted to scrape up RRP US$250
      for that little thing. (Couch racing, anyone?)

      Star Guitar you are so wrong have you ever driven a micro not mini z micro, they are sweet, that mini t looks so awesome same with the rs4, matt i would o with the micro due to its aftermarket support, although the m18 looks mad. I wouldnt mind getting a new mini z but gotta blow my money on warhammer

      On the team losi website they said that the street price would be around US$150 and i have decided to get the micro rs4 with the following hopups:

      futaba MC230CR esc
      blind 8.4v 7 cell
      Team orion Big block motor and motor plate
      Magnum juniour radio with servos
      novak xxl receiver
      team orion 14t pinion

      I reckon the only good thing about micro cars is their speed which u can get wit 1/10th cars and u cant do anythin with a micro onroad car but drive it inside or if u wanna wear the tires on the street offroads are way better but the mini t is a car i would get if i had the money it is pretty damn cool they should have more mini offroad cars

      “non-Micro”

      Its all to do with relativity, gentlemen.

      As far as we’re concerned here, BCGs being our
      mainstay – anything bigger than 1/64th is “non-Micro”. 🙂

      ok, I’d better veto your shopping list before
      you go save up the $$$ for it… :smiley2:

      Start with a mRS4 kit first… build it as standard.
      Its got full bearings etc so you don’t need much more.
      (Don’t forget the paint for the body)

      You need radio and ESC… Futaba MJ is good AM choice.
      You can also buy MJ in a pack with 1 std servo, the 230CR ESC
      and the std RX (receiver) – that’s all you need to get going.
      Yes a std servo fits in the mRS4, don’t need micro servos.

      Don’t need to buy separate RX, the Futaba one works fine.
      Futaba MJ is also a AM radio, can’t use FM RXes with it.
      XXXL is not much smaller than the Futaba RX anyway.

      Stock kit comes with a battery box that holds 4x AA/AAAs.
      That’s enough to get you going at the start.

      Big block motor etc etc should come later, when you’ve
      gotten used to the car & handling. Ditto 7-cells.
      (imho 6-cell is more than enough)

      Thanx panda i am now just getting.

      mc230cr esc
      mj with servos
      and mRS4 kit

      Panda I want to get the mj with one servo, reciever and mc230cr but rcmart does not stock that, I know other places do like tower but I would rather by them all together because i am also buying some mini-z hopups in the same order. How much do you think I would be able to get for one servo on ebay.

      just keep the extra servo…trust me..you might need it later on….ive got about i had about 4 servo’s free…..but when some one needs one i let em have it at a small price…..
      but more parts the better i say…same with batteries….ps2 games….etc..
      cheers
