If your looking to buy soon out of those choices I would go with the HB D819. Tekno is coming out with a new kit soon though. I致e seen plenty of D819 run and they look very solid in the hands of pros and joes.

I've heard great things about how easy the Agama cars are to drive as well as being tough. And I drive Mugens haha.

Since it took only 2 posts to suggest something other than what the poster asked, I'll throw in the JQ Black Edition with by FAR the best support.

But really, all are good. Go with what your local hobby shop or track guys support.

Think of it this way- it's the only brand where you can ask the designer directly via mail or FB and ask him for advice
