hi all,

My name is Peter, I'm from Chicago and am completely new to RC cars but very interested in learning and getting addicted:)...well, I heard about that hobby show in my area and got more interested, just bought my first radio control...some Futaba Magnum Sport FP-T2PB model...and it said radio only...and I am not even sure what else I need to get into all this. I will go to that expo on sunday and possibly learn more there but maybe some of you guys may be able to help?

All i want for the beggining is a nice electric car kit just to learn the basics. I am more into OnRoad then off but all of it seems fun. Now what else I should be looking into getting just to get me started?

Thanks all

Audiguy,
try Al's hobby shop in Elmhurst, they're loaded with RC stuff. Just outside of town is Jolliet, I'm not sure of the location but a good track for sure.
If you want something simple and fun, Mini T's seem to be catching on real big. You can get the basic kit (radio and all) for around $150.

Welcome :wave: :p
Later, Bret
