I'm thinking of buying a 2wd 10th scale buggy to start racing at my local track.

I knew I could count on my brothers here to give good advice. My 2 adult boys and I have gotten the bug. Thinking this would be a way to keep playing over the winter when bashing sucks around here. I would love any advice.

Can't imagine anyone saying you and your sons getting involved in racing is a bad idea....Go to your local track, talk to the locals, educate yourself first to see if its a fit for you three before investing in rigs. Just 1 opinion.

Thanks Johnny 👍 been talking to the locals. Great group of guys. Most are running team associated and losi. I am seriously considering the losi 22 5.0 elite. $100 more than the basic.
 
My tip -- don't call your buggy a "rig".

I would definitely get the B6.4 over the 22 5.0 Elite.

TA B64 does well on dirt or carpet.(y) So they say. I never raced on carpet before. Seems to be a rarity to find one. At least here in the N. East.
 
In case you're curious about tires, found a nifty video that might help. Maybe you'll recognize the author. (Hint, it's @razorrc )

I'm fairly sure that guy has lots of 1/10 2wd buggy reviews, including the B6.4, the 22 5.0, the Schumacher, Yokomo... maybe a good idea to check out his videos, I get all my RC knowledge from him.

Or he from me, I can't remember which!

Subscribed and watching. Great stuff 👏

It is a great thing to be in the racing side of the RC hobby with your kid / kids . Find a class that you like and that has enough entries that whenever you go you know there will be racing . At our track buggies are the biggest classes, 2WD Stock buggy / 2WD Mod buggy / 4WD 13.5 buggy . Then Stadium truck and 2WD Mod SCT .
You will meet a lot of people , make a bunch of new friends , learn a ton by watching asking questions and driving itself . Bashing is one aspect of RC driving but the whole racing thing is and can be intense at some times . You said clay is the surface at the track you would be going to , mine is carpet indoor and turf outside . I have never ran on clay , so can't give you any advice on that other than in no time you will fall right into the groove with all the new people you'll meet .
Just my advice , all 3 of you stay with the same brand / models as now you will know them inside and out as well as having tons of parts for each other .
My track does club racing every Tues and Fri night and once a month does Trophy races on a Sunday . I race with my daughter , been doing it for about 5 years now but slowed down as she is in college and has 2 jobs . We were just at our track yesterday for a New Years Day trophy race . We race 2WD Mod SCT .

Looks like a very nice track there. I only ran carpet with my TC. Running foamies. A different animal. Track only allowed Pan car 1/12 and 1/10 TC's. A small track at that. I always wanted to run 1/10 2WD Buggy on Carpet. Seems like a good challenge. With High bite and alot of Tire tuning. Jumps and all.

I know there are a few members that go there , if you are from CT / MA this is the place for doing RC !!! 1/8 scale outdoor dirt track , 1/10 outdoor turf track , dragstrip , outdoor paved oval , outdoor big crawler course , bash area , indoor carpet on road oval , indoor 1/10 carpet off road course ( my fav ) , 2 indoor crawler courses . NTM full hobby shop with pretty much everything .
