Holy crap! That's a lot of spray cans. I might have to do the same to achieve the TCM color.
I have a tamiya display rack of tamiya paints from my magazine days

Thunder Cloud Metallic is pretty much darker silver. It's pretty much in between Tamiya silver and gunmetal.

What's the best kit to get?
Looking at the HPI Flux or the e10 or what are some other options?
I have a small budget so what's the top of the line for less money???


Also where shoud I look for accessories?

The e10 drift is what I'm hopefully getting. It's the kit Rcdrift mentioned earlier in this thread, and I checked out some videos of it on youtube. It looks pretty neat, though I'm wondering if I'll need taller body posts since the xB is much taller than a regular car-type body.

Actually it might be good to start a "mini xB" thread in the Sports/Rec forum which is where the general RC talk thread is. With so many folks getting these bodies, I can imagine there will be a lot of chatter and progress shots!

Depends what are you using it for. If it's for shelfing, then E-10 would be good.

IMO, HPI are good, but lacks competition when racing it with other brands.

I'd recommend the e10 for the person who will shelf it, and just drive around at meets and what not. Or not looking to spend a lot.

The sprint2 is great for anyone who wants to spend a little more.

The flux is balls out, if you've never RCed before get ready to crash a lot lol

However.........

If your looking to only drift hands down get a 3racing d3

And all that said and done im a tamiya fan boy and the only hpi's I own are for my son or I've gotten for free :) :) :)

Argh! What a lousy time to be unemployed. Not that there's a good time, but I've got my body and nothing to run it on. Oh well, another 'someday' project haha

I agree on all of the statement. The 3Racing is the best "bang for the buck" if you want a drift car.

For Hpi e10 the cheapest, then the sprint2, then the flux

For Tamiya any of the expert builds are really nice

Largest us based retailer is
Www.towerhobbies.com

But I find www.ultimatehobbies.com to be cheaper. They are a smaller mom and pop shop in Cali and I have bought lots of stuff threw them.

If your looking for the D3 get it from ebay
