There are cars as good a a NTC3, Let's not get into a yelling match.
Ntc3 lworks well for some people, and works well at some tracks, but maybe the MTX3 works best at some other tracks at the hands of someone else.
There is a reason why the NTC3 has done so well in major competitions. However, it is a car that doesn't work too well for a guy like me.
Checking out the competition at the track would be the most useful thing you could possibly do.
