Default Good starter kit?

Getting back to nitro rc since 2005. I am looking for a kit under $800. I have found 2 of them and wanted to get some feedback. I don't race or do anything crazy. Maybe on some weekends I will run it for couple of hrs.

Here are the kits that I. Interested in. Which one would you guys recommend.

Inferno MP9 TKI3 anniversary
inferno MP9 TKI4 A spec

Thanks

Get the Losi one if you are just going to drive around the house and such, much cheaper as well. If you plan on going to the tracks and maybe start racing, then the Kyosho is not a bad choice at all.

go with the Losi RTR. Parts are more readily available as well.

I also have a Losi RTR with race upgrades for sale if you're interested.

Tki4 A spec Anniversary edition. Kyosho gave me really good deal for $560 and it is already built.

Also got the WRX Corsa reds motor.


I still have my tki4 RTR kit. It amazes me how awesome is the kit. For a RTR and $500 it is hell of a deal. The motor is very strong.car is solid.
