    If you are considering buying a new nitro vehicle, then I strongly recommend you consider the following.

    1) Check locally to see what others run and speak to them about their experiences, good and bad. It helps to know someone with the same car should you have any problems.

    2) Make darn sure you can buy replacement parts locally. Waiting on mail order is a pain and could leave you stranded for weeks waiting on that one part that broke. I can't stress this one enough.

    3) Buy a name brand vehicle and not some nice "special of the week" from the local shop or some online store. By brand names I mean Team Associated, Serpent, Trinity, Losi, Yokomo, etc... Names like CEN, Smartech and others DO NOT make quality vehicles.
