Well, the MRX4 is an 8th scale. If you were looking for 10th scale, the choice out of the 3 would be a TC3.

TC3? Is electric right? Do you mean NTC3?

MRX4 is 1/8th scale. I guess you mean mtx-4 , the touring car version.

Theres never just one better car. There are normally lots of choices that go into a car purchase. I would just reccomend going to your track and local hobby shop. See what they have in stock most and what they reccomend and go from there.

well the question is which do you like more ?
are these your choices because your hobby shop carry these cars?
and which one has the best parts support and you can get help from your hobby shop?
and maybe you are say mtx-4 touring car not mrx4 thats and 1/8 car 21 powered car

out of those 3 the tc3 the parts are very availible and cheap if you look arroud and find an mtx-3 or mtx-3prospec the parts are alittel more but it is the toughest car I have had so for.stick with 1/10 scale till you get good n practiced driving and aren't having to buy parts all the time to race, Good racing and have fun!
