Don't discount the xxxCr. Drive a well setup one at LIR and you'd be surprised how good it can be.

I've owned both and both are good cars to drive and work on. I stayed with the RB5 because I got tired of taking care of the Associated shocks. Kyosho shocks are far better than the Associated shocks for maintenance.
