Default RS4 Micro or Mini-Z ?

I want to get a small R/C car. But I don't know If I should get a Mini-Z or an RS4 Micro. I am leaning towards the RS4 becasue it is more realistic, and has more hop-up options. But the Mini-Z is a lot cheaper and it comest with a radio. What would you guys suggest?

Thanks for the help.

I'd go for the Micro. It's 4WD, uses standard electronics, and handles better than the Mini-Z. The radio that comes with the Mini-Z kinda sucks and you cant change it-but you can in the Micro.

the micro rs4 is similar to most 1/10 touring cars because it uses the same electronics (servo, radio system, esc). it has a lexan body and it is 4wd. also, it is a bit larger than the mini z. the downside is you will spend more on an rs4 because the cheaper mini z comes with a radio, all you need are batteries for the transmitter (size AA) and the car (size AAA). but if ever you want to get into 1/10 electric touring cars, you can use the electronics on your micro rs4 and transfer it.

Talking My Decision

Hey thanks guys for the replys, I think I have decided that I am going to get a Micro becasue I have to spend about 60 bucks more on a Micro butI think it is worth it.

For the ESC, I had two in mind.

The Duratrax ESC if I got a Futaba Radio
(ESC-100)

And the Airtronics EXC if a got an Airtronics Radio
(ES-01)

The Airtronics ESC is made for Small R/C cars and is about the size of a quarter so I know it would fit.

The Duratrax ESC is for a futaba radio and I prefer Futaba Radios better, but I don't know if it would fit in the car.

What should I do? Get the Airtronics Radio and ESC
or the Futaba Radio and ESC?

Thanks for the help
Jake
