Out of those cars, I would go with the MTX-4.

There is not "best" car out of the group you listed; they are all pretty much on the same plain. It all depends on your preference. If Mugen parts are hard to get in your area, then you have knocked on off your list already. Find a car that you are comfortable with and just roll with it. Do you due diligence on all the cars and pick the one that you feel is suited for your situation.

Another way to decide which car is better for you is local track support find out what car is popular so you can have some help on setup that is important because if you have a car that no one runs you can't get no help when needed where I race there are a lot of RRR & MTX4 I went with RRR because I have friends at the track that said RRR is easier to setup right out the box since I've had my RRR I went a lap faster than my personal best.

Here is my 2 cents
best bang for the buck Kyosho RRR WCE
you don't need to buy any other options for the car
I had the the following cars 710,G4,RRR,MTX4 and I decided to stick with the RRR
It is easier to get a car that is most commonly used where you race that way there are a lot of drivers that can help you with a setup

Yes the G4 is fragile from the box stock version.

George you must be talking about the evo because I know the S ain't fragile in any way. In fact I would say with confidence if two of the popular cars had an accidental tangle on the track I promise you the G4S would be in significantly better condition. In fact the new car is so tough we have jokingly nicknamed it within our group as the new TM MTX3. LOL

I run a 3R and love it! I ran a Ntc3 before it and I was always fighting it trying to get a good setup. I put the 3r down and it was head and sholders above any other nitro car I've driven. In my opinion You can't go wrong with the 3R.

I agree with the 3R, but make sure it's a WE. Brooklynhobbies has 1 in stock for $399..

Whats up thats why you only see the G4 I would be a liar If I included the S to it but as the post states best dollar out of the box.
I like the the nickname TM MTX3 that got me laughing a bit
As for the G4S I seen a lot of the improvements that dennis made to to car at the GLC 05. Now it all has to do with who gets that car in the podium.
I could go on with the comparsions between cars since the G4S has a lot of upgrades that were based off of the 710 & having all of the above cars I know the pro & cons of each car
