there are many great cars around...You have to feel it youself and see if its suit you.
See if The spare parts is it support by your LHS, Or what does most of your friends been owning,least if you had problem , friends are there to help.
Last not not least, you have to do some homework before you decide which car to choose from.

I think i am going to go with the regular r40......i am 75% sold on that....the other 25% of me likes the team associated tc3.....i just like the fact that for the extra 100 bucks on the r40 I can add the pipe i want and add a dew of the hara options.

you guys have been a great help. Hopefully, one day I can be as knowledgable and helpful as you all.

ed

PS how key is that.....sponsored by your wife?

Theres really no hara parts to buy. Just stuff he uses and the new upper deck , chassis and gas-tank. Which you can swap on your standard r40 to make it the hara edition.

But the stock kits has standard screws , standard 2spd , standard shafts , no cf shock towers. Youll be spending a lot on upgrades.

If you got the dough , go with the 2004 over the standard.

How is your LHS on Mugen parts? Sure they are expensive, but mugen's are strong. I had the older R40 and when I hit someone or they hit me, parts broke off my car - not on theirs!!! If you have access, the mtx4 or Vonerrr would be my choice. Otherwise if you can find a hara or fully upgraded R40 for a great price, check it out. For that R40 on ebay $500 is a rip off.

Good choice, since you are just starting off. Now, you have to decide on an engine!!

Trying to be technical for your benefit. Yeah its probably the oldest nitro on the circuit. At least it fist debuted a long time ago. Not sure how long ago the Team Version came out....but yeah.

Guess thats kinda a good bad thing. 1. Its been around the longest and like you say people still race with it. 2. But its also the oldest on the track.

I know when I was driving my racer2 they came out with it. All I would see back then was the ntc3 and the trinity reflex. Ever hear of the reflex....exactly. LOL I swore that reflex was going to be around for awhile. After the hpi forums died....I came back and never heard of it again.

If you look at the current pro nitro cars. They all kinda look the same. The shaft driven tc3 looks completely different. Kinda like the old school cars, racer2 , rs4-3 , yokomo gt , v-one-s days.
