I need help and fast!!!!
Hi everyone,

I'm gonna start racing 1/10th nitro onroad again. Had a serpent impulse like a few years ago, didn't use it that much. But that was 4 years ago and now i want to start again.

The problem is that I don't know which kit to buy. People told me that i need to look at what my lhs carries (parts and stuff) and what people drive at the local track. these are the cars that i'm considering:

1. Kyosho V-One RRR Evo WCE (used almost new roller)
2. HPI R40 Hara Edition (used with everything i would need to drive)
3. Team Magic G4S (new)

They are all the same price.
Which one would you recommend, seeing as though i'm no proffesional driver, but i do have building and somewhat driving experience. I don't want a RS4 RTR or any of those kits, i want something that i can grow with. I'm gonna participate at clubraces on a circuit and then national championships

If all 3 are the same price, then I would go for the KYOSHO V ONE RRR.
Just my opinion, no offense.

Serpent 720 recently won the 301 race in maryland!!!!

Of the choices you listed, I would recommend the RRR WCE. It's really easy to work on and provides you with the most setup options given any track layout and traction. Out of the box, it is very competitive.

The R40 isn't considered very competitive at a national level anymore.

My Knowledge Base site (http://www.nitrokb.com) has quite a bit of info on the top cars. That might help with your with your decision.

I can tell you that the RRR is a strong car, I tested it this Sunday. I agree that you should lean towards which parts are easy to get. Also talk to the racers and see what they think about their cars. Just my .03

Most important get the car that you're lhs can support too.

If you only have your 3 choices, then I will go with the Kyosho. But if you can get your hands on a Mugen, I will suggest you to check it out as well.
