The ZX5 is nice, but a different animal than the RB5.
If you plan on racing locally look at what classes are popular.
The RB5 has about 1/2 of the parts to maintain.
Once you learn either they are really easy to tear down & reassemble.

I have a ZX5 & an Ultima SC, I like them equally, but only race the SC.

they are both great, but the 4wheel is a lot of upkeep, if you are planning on running only 1 vehicle i would suggest the 2 wheel. I have both bye the way and love them both
