I've owned a few V One R's and want something else besides 200mm sedans. I'd love an 1/8th but the price of the car and a decent 3.5cc engine is more than what i'd like to spend. I know 235mm is not cheap, but its more feasible for me at the moment than a full blown 1/8th. Does anyone race/run these anymore because it seems like there are no threads on this class and barely any info on mytsn.com either.
Also I'm looking at the Evo4 MS 7+1 and the Evo5 MS 5+1. Is there much power difference between the 4 and the 5?
I was going through similar situation as you are, but I end up got an 8th scale.
Now I might be wrong but here are a few numbers and it might help you out to compare!
MRX3 Works Kit----------------$590
Novarossi R1 Kangaroo WC--$375~ this is already plenty fast for most ppl
Tires, roughly around $40~$50 a set of 4, the rest are pretty much the same cost, like servos receivers and pipe
Now, I know 15 size engine is not that much cheaper then 21 size unless you are referring to Jp R1, Rody C5 or Collari C5 and such beast!
Also, 8th scale is most more popular then 235mm 10th scale! make sure you have someone to run with, otherwise you will get bored really fast!
Just my $0,02
