Have recently got back into 1/8 (well actual RC as a hobby). As 1/8 was always my first love, I went nuts and picked up a mugen mrx5 WC, motonica rs3, rx8 2013, and capricorn c0801. All are great cars but the RS3 is the current work horse. I love its durability and the fact settings can go slightly off and the car can still be driven easily. It has a very wide sweet spot. Not necessarily as responsive as the mugen but so planted and easy to drive its a great all rounder.
