Hi I have been looking into buying a Team Magic G4 or G4S and people have been telling me that it is better to get the G4S rtr than the RDL mongoose.

That is the same advice I got, ended up with the Mugen MTX-4R. If you want to say with the Team Magic line, the G4S is a great car

I second the parts are available via internet. I live in Quebec and no hobby shops stock team magic.

I go to raceday hobbies online and get what i need. It's for sure that in the beginning of every season i stock up on parts that are prone to breaking if you hit. this way i'm never stuck missing a race.

Default G4/Mongoose

The G4/Mongoose is a great car....I actually ran it for about 6yrs......If I were u I wouldnt get the mongoose or the ready to run.......U should buy the G4s in kit form and build ur kit from the ground up,,,,so u learn how the car works......and if u wanted to oneday upgrade ur car to the G4+ ur only a few parts away....dnt wast time wit ready to runs they never come with the race ready parts!!!!

The kit is the way to go. You will learn a lot and it makes it easier when it's time to break it down for cleaning or to replace a part.

You are better of with a Pro kit if you are really serious about racing... Any of the leading brands out there would be great such as the Serpent 720 '07 version, Kyosho V-One RRR Evo WCE, Team Magic G4S, Mugen MTX-4R, X-ray NT1. The big question now is how much are you willing to invest...

I'm looking to guy a kit car. I would never buy an RTR because to make it race ready cost more then the kit.

I'm willing to spend up 5 or 600.00. BUT I want something that I can race once I learn the car.

at the moment raceday hobbies has the G4S Kit for $375. this is the best way to go, and it comes with a free ED trans worth $125. It has the UFO clutch which the Mongoose doesnt have, plus better weight distribution and steering components. this is the way to go if you want to race the car. all the G4+ parts fit the car, and minor differences in the clutch to the G4+.
hope this helps you make the decision easier
