If parts are abundant at your local hobby shops, I would get the Sakura S. I don't have one but I do have the Sakura Zero, 2 of 'em. Handling is on par with any top brands out there, parts are cheap and its durable. I assume the S version will also handle the same as it has the same design.

The HotBodies Cyclone S is more aimed at a novice getting into the sport or bashing around a parking lot. To handle decent power it will need drivetrain upgrades,.... plus being a plastic tub it will flex a lot.

The Sakura Zero S i have not seen though it is a more recent model...

I would go the Sakura.

Dont forget about the other cars out there... ie TOP Photon, HB TCX, XRAY T3'11...

Spending a little more now will save you in the long run
