The Yokomo is a more upgradeable, better built car than the Sprint, but it also has ball differentials, which can be a bit tricky for absolute beginners to set up right. The Sprint has gear diffs and is pre-built. Personally I'd get the Yokomo, but if you're scared of building a kit (you shouldn't be, just take your time), go for the HPI.

Yep, the Yokomo is a great car. The CVD's aint the best, but other than that, it's very durable. Fast too.
