im just trying to compair because i dont want to have to upgrade to a better racing car when i need it ...i would rather buy now and be able to use it later and now not just for now.
Durability any handling are 2 different issues. The R40 is one of the most durable cars available in my opinion. The car in Hara trim also won the ROAR nationals 2 years in a row. Hara might have won a 3rd, but was racing electric durring the last Nats. The final decision is really your personal preference. The R40 isn't perfect, but I like it. That's why I run it. I also have a Serpent and a Yokomo, but still prefer the HPI. You will need to decide for yourself. HPI, Serpent, Mugen, Mongoose all make good cars.
