The MTX4 is a very good car. For radios, most top of the line radios are quite good. If you have the opportunity, just pick them up and see which feels the most comfortable in your hands. They all have similar features. Servos are kinda the same thing. Ask 5 people get 5 different answers. All the major manufacturers (KO, Futaba, Airtronics, JR) make high speed, high torque, metal gear, ball bearing, coreless, digital and all combinations of servos. They are all breakable. I have used airtronics and have been very very very (did I say very?) happy. They are the only radios and pretty much the only servos I had ever used until the last few months. I am currently trying some Futaba 9451 servos for steering and one of them doesn't center as well as my airtronics analog servos. Everyone else who has them seems to thing they are great.
Engines are the same thing. Many people love the new OS TZ engines. They are definitely the most power for the money, but I have seen some that went away quickly. The novarossi based engines (Nova, Mugen etc) are more money, but are tried and proven. They make good power, are not hard to tune and have good durability. You pay extra to know you are getting quality. If you want to get a proven thing, get a Nova N12LS3 or a Mugen X12. If you buy quality equipment then your racing results land on your shoulders. Maintain you gear and practice and you should get the results you expect.
