Default New Here .. with some questions

hey guys , first time poster on the site .. New to scale crawling but not new to Rc's ... I love the concept of making rc's look like real trucks ... ive browsed throught the site and see so many cool builds.. I want to start small but dont know where to start ...

Is the trail trekker a good starting point ? I dont spend too much money ...

Where does everyone find their scale stuff ?

Is this the right forum to post and review things related to the 1/24 scale trail trekker ...? I dont see much about it

Welcome to the forum nitrojunk. As I'm a noob also still I'm not familiar with the trekker. Can't help you their..As for sights for scale goodies I really like RPP hobby, and rc4wd..Some great prices and all kinds of eye candy...Caution though...you can spend lots of money and still want more. As I don't have a lot to spend on these things I started with the trail stomper. Great price and comes Ready to run. I use the base chassis for all my builds. I'm sure some other members will chime in and help you out some more...Welcome to the community and can't wait to see ya post some projects up.

Welcome to the forum.

The trail trekker is a good point to start in my opinion because it is simple enough to work with and the axles can look scale under most 1/24 and 1/24 scale models. Other options would be the Redcat Sumo Crawler. the axles are slightly bigger from what ive seen but it is also a good place to start. Another benefit is that you can get a complete one for $80 on ebay from a dealer. Besides those two, the only other base truck i can think of would be the losi micro crawler but it has been discontinued. it is almost the same thing as the micro trekker except for a few dimensions i think.

As for accessories, i cant help you there. ive built most of the things on my rigs and in my opinion it is more fun that was but to each his own. If you want to try building your own accessories then using styrene is a perfect start because the material is cheap and very easy to us plus it is very durable.

Good luck and enjoy your time here.
