Default Serpent 720 07/Mugen MTX4-R/Kyosho V-One RRR WC/XRAY NT1/G4S - Help for Choicw

Hi guys,

Serpent 720 07/
Mugen MTX4-R/
Kyosho V-One RRR WC/
XRAY NT1/
Team Magic G4S

I am planning to buy a pro car for races. I read alot messages posted to the car's topics in R/C tech. Now I am undecided. My question is which one you recommend from above? I am looking for a reliable, fast, stable, very adjustable car.

Thanks for your answers.

Let me start by telling you what most would tell, get something that you can get support at your local track and hobby shop. After that it really is personal preference. All the kits you mentioned are very worthy cars. Note that there are upgrade versions of the Mugen, Kyosho and Team Magic cars. If you getting new, might as well get it with all the upgrades and improvements. Happy hunting.

each one of those cars is good. but for me if i have i choice i would choose between 720, and rrr evo. RRR evo because i have one. and so far it is a very good car. fast, reliable and easy to set-up. 720 because i have seen one run. and it handles very nice! i would like to have one if pocket permits. i havent seen an NT1 run though but i think thats a good car also mainly because its based on the car first three cars on your title.

Get all of them. That'd be nice so that you can try it out yourself.

Thanks for quick replies. I can get support for every car I mentioned. So that's not gonna be a problem for me.

Getting all of them will cost me a lot. So I will get only one of them. I am trying to get the best of them.

Gti-6~ How much experience do you have with R/C cars?

Ultimately, it's your setup, engine tuning and driving ability that will decide how well you do on the track. Each car you listed has the potential to cross the finish line first, but their design, durability, reliability and how easy they are to work on the pit table are not the same.

My Knowledge Base site has quite a bit of info on the RRR, MTX-4 and 720. That might help with your with your decision.

I would also suggest that you download the manual, setup guide and setup sheet for each car and read through them carefully. It will give you a better understanding of the differences between each car.

Good luck - and let us know what you decide.

Thanks for each reply. I think I will be busy with reading. From what I read before, I will focus on Serpent 720 07. My other two options will be Mugen and Kyosho.
