Default Which Nitro Car should I buy?

I sold my Nitro 4Tec 3.3 because I know it really isn't a competative car to have. And I like putting cars together myself.

So which Nitro Kit should I buy? I am really thinking of getting the MTX-4R.

Any suggestions?

The MTX4R is great car, but so is the RRR, and the Serpent 720
Really depends on your preference, and what your local shops carry for when you need parts. I have two RRRs and one MTX4R, and they do vary somewhat in handling, both are very capable of putting you in the A main.
You will get countless opinions on what car to get, but if parts are not readily availiable when you need them, then any car is pretty much useless sitting on a shelve waiting on parts.

Of the top cars, choose the one that best fits your budget and one that your local hobby shop either supports or can support. Many will get on here and tell you that Car A is much better than Cars B, C, and D, but Car A may not be the car for you. Do a little research on the top four cars (Mugen, Kyosho, Xray, and Serpent), weigh the pros and cons, then choose the one that you feel best suits you. Just my $0.02.
