i've been doing price checks and the mugen is VERY expensive, almost 700 bucks for the top of the line model. on the other hand the ntc3 i've found for 300 bucks. I am leaning toward the ntc3 as well. Like i said, i want to get used to my hpi rs4 and practice with it before i get the ntc3 because i want to use that as my racing car. Maybe once i get used to both of them and win the loterry i'll the the mugen.

Yeah but you have to include other equipment, how are you going to start the mr-12 included in the kit that comes with an engine?

$300 would probably be the rtr ntc3, you can get the kit form lesser then $300. A good motor that cheap for that non-pullstart engine is a Sirio. A very fast and reliable engine. Might be hard to start up the first time but once you got it, starting the engine is a breeze, with a starter box.

Alot of peoples might think that a Sirio is a hard to tune engien, I use to too. When I run all I have to tune is the high speed niddle, it start right up. To me is easier to tune then a O.S. you can disagree with me.

I've had tuned a O.S. 15 before, I could only say it my worst nightmare tuning the engine. But I could be wrong.

i thought O.S were supposed to be some of the easiest engines to tune! if anyone wants to become a pro at tunning an engine, go grab a trx .15 and tune it hehe. youll become a pro guaranteed. no joke
