Hi everyone I am Gio from BC Im trying to get into the IR tank hobby and am hoping someone can help me work out my first tank. Im hoping to get either a panther or jagdpanther.
I have looked at Taigen and Torro. They look very similar and dont know what the true diffrences are and iI have read some thing about the Taigen arent able to IR battle anything but its own company?
Also i am looking at getting the metal version figure spend alittle more and make it last longer, save some extra time adding in the new gears and the like. I have a budget around 650$ cad. Dont know many other companies and wanting to get the best bang for my buck.
If anyone can help with some insight it would be very much appriciated.

Looking. Their (Winona's) prices are very good for Taigen metal units. Too bad I'm strapped for $.

Still thinking about that one, but no. Have to replace a tank I sold. You will see at the next meet.
