Hemanth, the RC you have is an onroad car. The race is for hobby grade OFFROAD RCs.

Where did you get the RC? Do you have access to any spares? Is the Carisma cars a semi hobby grade like Nikko?

I am planning on buying a RC car my budget is around 20k (would like to spend within and if possible not exceed it )

The options i've considered right now are:-

1. Traxxas Slash 2wd Brushed edition 1/10th scale
2. Traxxas Slash 4wd, Brushless, 1/16th scale
3. Traxxas e-revo 4wd, Brushless, 1/16th scale

Please tell me which among these is the best. I will mainly be using it on the terrace,backyard (pretty huge almost 20'x30' and there's absolutely no concrete/cement) and a little bit of track racing whenever i get a chance. Please suggest any other brand with good support in India.

Battery consumption is the main problem in non rechargeable RC cars. My son needs 6 AA batteries a day. After a week, I have bought 2 X 4 set of Sony 2700 NiMH rechargeable batteries. :-)
