Default I have questions about a CEN car....

I have a question about the CEN CT-5 cars, are they much more better than the CT4S?? I'm kind of new again...(I took a 5 year break from r/c cars....) I'm pretty much experienced in electrics, want to move on to Nitros...(more power, mwawhahahaha...) So is the CT-5 better than the CT4S, or are there much better cars out there???

Help a r/c idiot....all over again, plz....

Much better cars out there. If you are looking to race, then look for Kyosho, Mugen, or Serpent... I had a CT4S, and i don't miss it at all.

Just an FYI...I think their Genesis is very nice. That thing looks and feels rugged. Very surprised when I touched it in person.

An RTR Associated NTC3 will be a way better car than the CEN specially for a beginner , like parts in almost every hobby store

im also a beginner and i was thinking about getting a CEN, because i was
impressed with the speed it advertised. But then reality hit me and i got a HPI RS4 3 18SS. For being a beginner, i have to say it was very easy to put together, took me about 10-14 hours. i had lots of fun and if i anything goes wrong, im not worried about taking it apart cause i know how to put it back together. i think all beginners should get KITs.

CEN speed is on a long-long-long straight-a-way. On a track with multiple turns, you need quick bursts, and a NTC3 out of the box will give you that!!
