Default fw-05t+ vs hpi rs4 3 evo+

which one better & faster? i found that rs4 has more hop up than fw-05T+. I'm planning to run this on the track but not for race.

How the roto start (hpi) work? is that better than using pull start? What happen if I need to replace the engine?

I don't know which is faster, but I got roto start and it's much better than pull start. Once you got the batteries and the roto start itself, you can buy different back plates for other engines (around $10)

Memories of my first basher the evo is fast but when it comes to racing it on a track it's another stock box of rocks way to many parts have to change for it to be drivable on a track
As for the fw05 I've seen them run at the kyosho cup & I was impressed box stock they were putting in some real good lap times very close to the RRR lap times
As for the roto start after a while I just took it off & bump started it I got feed up with it when the gears would strip. both great begining cars to have some fun with & hop ups don't really do anything for the car just adds more weight to it but everybody like's the bling bling
Good luck with your choice

the pullstart on the kyosho doesnt use a one way bearing and is ultra reliable. I havent had any problems in 2 years with mine. One less thing to have charged around the place imo. Like GFIGUEROA said re hopups doesnt need a whole lot and the only ones worth buying are the genuine kyosho hopups which improve it for racing. If you want all those alloy hopups for looks then you might be better of buying the hpi.
kyosho motor is a great motor surprisingly quick if you set it up right.
