Default Can't choose between 3 Cars HELP.

I currently race a 1/8th Serpent 950r but I am looking to get a 1/10th scale touring car but as I have never raced 1/10th class I am not sure what to get.

I guess my choice is between these 3 cars:
Kyosho V One RRR
Mugen MTX 4
Serpent 710

I know a lot of choice on picking a car is personal but what car is doing the best out there and is a solid choice. As personal preference I was leaning towards either the Kyosho or Mugen just to have something different from Serpent but if anyone can give me some solid reason which car to go for that would be most helpful.

Thanks

I drive the MTX-4, but I am waiting to see what the 720 is going to be like. Soon to be out. If I had a choise, I would be driving the RRR.

Those three cars are very good. For me thought, I prefer the V-one RRR. I feel it is very tunable..

720 will be out in a few months, i guess.. get the RRR... it's very good.. you can set it up for the any kind of track layout easily. well, anyone of those cars will do as long as you have good parts support from your LHS>

Even if the 720 may be coming out later on, wait for a product review. Just like when the MTX4 came out it wasn't all hyped up to be as many still ran the MTX3 and prospec version. However the 4 has now proved to be better and once setup will scream performance. A lot of people though still run and or prever the VoneRRR. I like the kyosho myself, but the LHS doesn't seem to have most parts for it - mostly mugen. I'd go with Kyosho first, Mugen 2nd, and 710 3rd. WHen choosing from the big 3 it is indeed a very hard decision.

There is also the RRR Evo that will be out in June/July. That would be a good car. A reworked RRR. Everyone seems to like the RRR, the Evo can only be better.

No 710. The setup window is very small.
Yes RRR WC. You can just throw it down and your already in the ball park.
Yes MTX 4 Just as good.

The date should be in June. This will be a base model like the RRR.

If you have to have a car now...I would buy the RRR WCE and buy the RRR Evo conversion kit when it is available. One because you can upgrade your current ride (RRR) and have the newest car out of the Nitro Touring Racing class. Take advantage. The day I received my RRR WCE the RRR Evo had been announced.

The RRR Evo should be cheaper than the WCE for sure, the conversion should be released along side the kit.
