That is a Very old chassis. Better be sure it comes with a boat load of parts, as <1>parts are getting very difficult to find now. <2> just starting out in on-road, you will of course go through a learning curve, and without a doubt break arms, shock towers, knuckles, hubs, and this list goes on. If you break a part and then can not locate a replacement part, the car is useless, and you will get discouraged very quickly looking at a car that can not be used.
With the new Mugen 10th scale coming out very soon, there are plenty of MTX4R, MTX4, and still some MTX3 cars floating around, that although used, but parts are still readily availiable..
Dont be fooled into thinking you need the most expensive, fastest engine on the market either. On-road does have a learning curve, and even though you may want to try and hang with an experienced driver on the track, take your time and learn to drive before you dump a load of money into a car only to destroy the car ever time you hit the track.
Not trying to discourage you from on-road, as I myself love it, but it does take time to learn how to drive the cars.
