To me this is a no brainer... get the mtx 3... look at how cheap replacement parts are!!! i'm only semi - biased cause ive only raced my mtx 3 once hehe it handles great and so easy to drive fast! it took me 4 months to do 19 sec laps with my trinity reflex and it took me 4 laps to do a 19 sec lap with the mtx 3... straight out of the box first run!

In my opinion, MTX3 knocks too hard, parts break, needs to change. V1RR knocks too hard, parts bend, needs to change too. Well, I have enjoyed & still enjoying my MTX3. It gave me a hell alot of performance satisfaction, cheers!

Thier is nothing wrong with any of the cars you have named its a matter of preference,and what parts your hobby shop keeps in stock and can and cant get. Of the 3 cars he serpent parts may be the hardest to come by and they are alot more in price.I run serpents and have no problem with the cars what so ever but I've raced for sometime and I can get parts and know how the cars are setup. The mugen is a great car runs good out of the box go to the mugen forum and ask Questions on what to expect from the car the guys thier are pretty cool,dont know much about the other car sorry.But dont forget HPI is coming out with an R40 and it should turn some heads to.I'm in the process of getting the 705 now and I have 2 impulses and 2 impacts staying with the 705 cause I have so many parts that are interchangable with my other cars.I will tell ya that the mugen is a great car tho,and you should be able to get parts for it.

Just my 2cents worth.....anybody got change

IMHO, It's hard to break 'em though.

I just broke my first part last week.

I think you guys are taking too much of the old LSD. (And I aint talking about a Limited Slip Diff ).

Maybe if you guys come over to Europe we will show you what a Snake can do.

Have you looked at the list of honours lately. The majority of wins over the last 20 odd years are by Serpent. What has Mugen done. 2 World Championships. And even that will come to an end this year

SNAKES RULE THE WORLD

VenomWorldOrder I hope that your name isnt Tomas Buratovich because 1:16 is bad.

Raced two laps and clocked 1.06.

Do you people know im kinda Fedup with this WHICH Car is good WHICH car is Fast Blah blah blah... keep on Flooding the forum.
May Be a moderator can make a sticky topic on nitro thread(Same on engine).
As for which car is good just look at the forum look for the most active thread in nitro. Example MTX3

Why ?
Because lots of drive are driving it. And that's Mean ...Good.

Serpent 705 Views 36522 Reply 2011

I donít like posting what car is better and witch one should people should get. However, this thread just got ridiculous by this last post!!

The MTX3 thread is full of B.S. and Sackriders!!
To say the best car out there is base on the most active thread in nitro fourm is STUPID!!


Do your own homework on chosing a car that suits you the best.

My Humble Opinion......
