Kyosho FW05 is a good one. NTC3 is starting to get phased out at alot of hobby shops so Im not so quick on recommending that. But the Team Magic G4S RTR is good as well.

I own a FW05T+ and I'm loving it. It has all settings that pro cars have, and you can change it to a pro car too, just like the G4S

Team Magic actually not only has the G4S RTR, but also the G4S LOLA and GTP RTR available as well.



All of these RTRs are built from the blood of the 2006 and 2007 European Champions Team Magic G4; and both the LOLA and GTP feature the K Factory flash-pit quick-change tire system!

Yeah, I have one. Its a good car because it's fully adjustable, and can clips the apex's perfectly. It's really easy to drive because it has alot of off power steering, almost too much, though it definately helps in the hair pins. The SH.12 engine really likes 20% BlueThunder. The stock car is good, but you may waunt to gear up (like me) to a 52 tooth 1st spur gear for better punch off the line and get stiffer shock springs for faster response. I also bought Kfactory Real Racing Brake Pads. After I did that I was getting the the same times as every one else at my local track when they had fully hopped out cars.

team magic G4S rtr upgrade your clutch and transmission then replace the SH .12 with a Red dot and then you will only have to improve your skill to be the fastest at your track! good luck.
