Default Use, Upgrade or Replace?

I have some older nitro sedan cars that I got sometime ago that I havn't used. I got them in anticipation of running nitro at my local nitro track. However instead I got to racing electric indoor onroad. So my nitro cars sat at home. Now I'm not talking about silly RTRs, these "were" race quality stuff. Now I am thinking of really getting into nitro onroad after more than a year's "binge" in electric sedan.

So here's what I got:

Kyosho V One RR Evo (not WCE, not RRR) w/ 3d clutch, STS 5-port turbo, Shimo chassis upgrade, graphite top-plate, oneway, Lola body, Skyline one-piece outlaw pipe, floating rear body mount.

G4 C-class w/ MR12, Mugen centax clutch, graphite shock towers, updated steering, oneway, front-universals, Skyline one-piece ROAR legal pipe.

Kyosho V One RR Evo (Stock chassis) w/ 3d clutch, MT12 Turbo,one-way, Negative diff, front universals, Skyline VR12 one-piece pipe.

I also have a well optioned Reflex NT roller. However, when I last checked, these cars aren't worth much to even sell in this forum (Not new enough).

So should I use, upgrade or replace them to be at least competitive at my local nitro track(Crystal Park Raceway)?

I agree...run the G4 with whatever option parts from the G4S you can find that work. It's still a competitive car.

The others have been replaced with the RRR and may not be able to upgrade as much as the G4 will.

Best thing is to sell your Kyoshos to finance the G4S upgrade kit and ufo clutch, then you will have the latest up to date car to run
Just keep the best engine you have to use with it and your cooking with gas
