I have tried the V1RRR WCE and the MTX-4R and I find the WCE a tad heavier. However, the V1RRR seems more surefooted in corners and seem to handle better. The MTX-4R seems to understeer more.
Any opinions about the NT1? Upon visually inspection, it seeems like a better design car but that purely my opinion. The receiver seems to be placed in a horrible palce on the WCE. Gets in the way of the throttle servo arm at times. The servo also seems very vulnerable to side impacts too.
As for parts, the WCE parts are more expensive compared to the MTX-4R but the MTX-4R parts are no way as sturdy as the WCE ones. My MTX-4R breaks front arms lvery easily.
Maybe just a poll of who has what and why your choice of the car?
What are you talking about??? Kyosho parts are far more cheaper than Mugen parts... Not to mention that Kyosho's arms, has many things included in the same package. The only exception to this is belts and 2nd gear spurs. The RRR is an awesome car, just as the MTX-4R and like the NT1.
It all comes down to setup, and maintenance issues. I'd suggest go with the car with the cheaper parts support and setup support.
If you need kyosho parts, the cheapest place I have seen them is Ashfordhobby.com. Rc-mushroom and RC-toro has some things cheaper than ashford hobby, but ashford hobby has most of the parts and not just some. Plus its in the US which shipping is cheaper than RC-mushroom.
