Default V One S vs. NTC3 RTR

Which of these RTRs would be a better choice (in you opinion) for occasional racing and more parking lot bashing.

V One S
NTC3RTR


or if is it just a better idea to step up to the...

NTC3
V One R


This nitro car wouldn't see to much racing....


thanks

i'd go the v-one s... since you will be parking lot racing you want strength and the v1s has alotta that

or you could go the v-one r or rr

Either one of the Associateds hold the major advantage of NO belts to strech, skip or break. This is just the thing for running on unprepared surfaces, like you alluded to in your initial post.

I say go the Kyosho any day. Just make sure where you drive that you clear most of the stones away if you can be bothered ! I drive my car out the front of my house sometimes and there's stones on the road, I'm yet to pick up a stone.

I've had both V one S and NTC3. V one S is tonka tuff , NTC3 is not tonka tuff. For car carpark racing go the V one S at least you won't be replacing parts after every accident.

The RR has a much better clutch (centax style) and comes with the "floating rear body mount". I think that's it, but it's worth it for the clutch from what I hear.
