That's too close to 'ride-it' scale, for me. I'd rather spend a few dollars more (less?) for something I can ride on at that point. 1/5 scale is debatable but I can get by on the fact that the wheels are smaller still, than my hand. But it's close. Much larger and I'll want to put a seat on it and a steering wheel, forego the electronics altogether.seen some WCM types go on ebay for about 800 - Grand. some rtr.
new they go between 1200 and 3500ish. needijng electronics.\
Well, I certainly respect that. Though, when I was racing Serpent Impacts, I can attest to just how expensive the hobby can get at any competition level. There for ~2 years I raced at a local track or two in GA where I used to live, I think I spent well over $4k just in cars and spares. Of course, Serpents aren't your typical 1/10 parking lot basher, either...theres alot that have 3g just in their bajas, and high end modded out FGs.
don't even want to look at a compitition 1/5 car. about 3G starting money and still needs motors and such. lol
Yeah. I especially like how the competition chassis itself is $220-$250, I think that's awesome (/sarcasm).with FG being made in Germany, the prices are going to be Pricey anywhere you go i would think. if your looking for the occasional EVO type part to add on, ebay would likely be the best. alot of folks will ship cross continant, so you may find some good deals on ebay uk or such.
