    It all sounds so exciting! Like cheap car modify (but not so cheap).

    I think my local club only does circuit races shame cause I'd love to drift with people. So I'd like something that can do both, is that doable on the same setup?

    yeah, just throw some drift tires on (or glue some pvc tube to some rims) and you are good to go for drift.

    Anything thing I say is my opinion, all care, but no responsibility taken.

    If any of you guys are looking at getting a car the site http://www.hobbyking.com is really cheap
    If you don't turn around to look at your car as you are walking away, you have the wrong car

    With the loader at a cool 2 million and then the remote side even higher than the loader it is a expensive little hobby to take up , RCT have just develop a guidance system which use's 2 laser box's which spin like a radar to calculate to profile of the drive and will control the loader all on its own with out the help of the operator , so all I do is dig the dirt and dump the dirt , we are about to trial loading a underground truck ( caterpillar AD55B ) via remote . MT ISA have a remote system called mine gem which they survey the working area the loader will be working , download the info to the main frame and loader and the computer system does the rest , as us the operator only digs and dumps dirt , it's pretty cool when you think about it .
