Hahaha. I used to be. I've had probably over 100 RCs in my life. Presently, sitting and collecting dust are my MBX5 Pro spec, T4, TC4, Traxxas Summit, Mini LST, 3 Kyosho Mini Zs and the full race track. All of the RCs except the MBX and the minis are all lipo and brushless. Then I got into RC boats, planes, and helis.

Use to have Traxxas T-maxx nitro and Rustler. Now I have a electric Traxxas Slash. I was bored one day over christmas break and mounted a camera. I want a Traxxas Rally! They can hit 60+mph, awd and drift pretty well.

I used to have a couple Team Associated RC10s back in the day. They were really fun/great. No time/money sink right now. Other hobbies.

the higher the mah is the better the battery...higher=longer run times

forget the drift tires...it's gonna be pricey if you go that route. go to home depot and buy 2"(i think) pvc pipe and cut 'em to size. they will last longer and you'll get a better drift. If you're running on carpet, you can use electrical tape
