Go with the nrs4-3. I have nrs4-2 and the thing i hate the most is gearing options. The rs42 doesnt have screw on pinions like the rs43 has. I put way too much money into my nrs4 though. Now i wish id of gotten a race car like a ntc3 or mugen. BTW, if your going ot get a nrs4-3, get the type SS kit and youll be better off IMO. Like always, you should read about your choices before your buy.

I always thought HPI engines were Picco based.

actually,the SS engines are made in japan.....nova (HPI) engines were offered as an option for awhile,but HPI had problems with supply,so they designed their own engine....

one big difference...I have 3 of the original HPI nova engines,and I ran the SS pulstart motor for awhile in my SS..

the nova engines are WAY faster then the SS engines....I ditched mine and put an RB turbo in my SS..

Well, I guess it really shows I'm not into HPI.
