Default 1/8 Nitro On-Road, How many available?

I see Serpent makes the 960 and Motonica makes the P8.0R. Is that it?

Available 1/8th kits are dominated by mostly the big three in the US; Mugen, Kyosho, and Serpent.

Delta supports basically a repackaged Kyosho Evolva with their own mix of parts.

HPI discontinued the proceed, and parts are almost impossible to get. I personally own and love the proceed, but I dont recommend anyone getting one since HPI refuses parts support.

Motonica is relatively new. Interesting design concepts, but parts are expensive and not very common here.

If you are going to race, your best bet is the Mugen or Serpent. I have a hard time finding Kyosho stuff ever since they parted ways with Great Planes/Towerhobbies. Mugen and Serpent are much easier to get parts and support for.

If you want something different there is the SMP Slide, something affordable the XR8 and something cheap I believe Colt is still producing one.

I also own and love the Proceed, but find it nearly impossible to get replacements. Hate the fact that HPI gave up on the entire project.

Default Car debate!

You can get all Kyosho parts from kyoshoamerica.com

They became the main distributor of their products when contract with great planes wasn't renewed.

IMO, Kyosho and Mugen are the best choices. Serpent is a good car, but to be competittive with a good driver running one of the other cars is to be a better driver than him or you will need to upgrade the Serpent with several upgrades that Serpent has developed to make car comparable to the other two. Also, parts for the Serpent are more expensive since most parts come individually wrapped a.e. one knuckle for the left, another package for a right side knuckle, and so on.
