Ask your hobby shop for there recommendations & look at the part support they have worst thing is you buy a new car & they don't have any parts to support it

You want to race and your looking at traxxas? Your main options are Mugen MTX4R, Kyosho V1RRR EVO WC, XRAY NT1, SERPENT 720. These are the top cars that everybody runs and are proven on the tracks.

Before you chose which car you are going to run, the best thing to do would be to go down to the local race track and have a chat tho the racers there and see what kind of cars are popular there.
If you chose a car that a few guys are running there successfully, they will be able to help you with setup advise and will most likely have spares you could buy if you have a breakage and don't have the part!

why would you not consider a team magic g4 car?? didnt it win last years european championships???only because the TM car does not have a good driver in the US dosent mean you cannot win with it?just look at all your options mate and dont just think mugen is the best?

I wouldn't consider a G4 because i changed from a G4 to the MTX4 and i can assure you that i'm wrapped with the Mugen and won't be going back as my MTX was faster first race meeting out than my G4 ever was after 18 months of racing!

as for onroad cars i would recomend the kyosho v-one rrr evo wc team edition it comes with all the hop ups and the car is fast out of the box but like george martinez said you buy what you can get parts for as for the g4 nobody runs it in florida so i cant give any input on it hope this helps
