hi there....i have this problem before until i was sponsored to use the GS Vision Racing car.
anyway, to give u the hint u needed...just go for the kit that has the parts available at yer LHS. All the kits u mention, the MTX3, & 705, are champions car except the R40(which not out yet & no champion track record yet to lean on). you can try the NTC3...they all capable of winning.

go for the part availability. just my 50 cents(in da club )

MTX-3, easy to drive, very light, competive out of box, parts are reasonably priced. lots of aftermarket hopups avaliable. so so intruction, satisfactory durability.
VonR, build like a tank, great instruction, parts are rather expensive, very durable,lots of aftermarket parts, a perfect first car.
NTC3, shaft drive for improved acceleration, fragile parts, good instruction, cheap parts , lots of after market hopups, thin chassis,

I havent been able to drive/race any other car except my NTC3. I LOVE my NTC3. At a race last weekend I was doing pretty good until i hit one of the corners at about 3/4 throttle and ripped the front wheel off. the car did great all day and it took a couple big hits. Alot of people say the car breaks easily, but it has taken my abuse. I'm still a newbie (only been doing this 3 months) and i hit the rails quite a bit .

Yep, i've driven it for a week. I like it because it has all the basic features and characteristics of the MTX-3, with a lot of smart improvements. I think it is the most up-to-date car you can buy today, and it has all the options you need from the box (E-type).

Hello herb,

Would you mind pointing out what you think is/are "smart improvements" on the G4 vs. MTX-3.

Thank you,

Thank you,
The steering system (no play on it), the much lower CG, adjustability, maintainability (with 4 screws i can get the diff out). This car cuts corners like a knife. But most of all, i like the quality of the parts used...

The G4 sounds pretty good. I like the tc3 b/c of the shaft drive. I hate when you are racing or playing and a rock gets in the belt and ruins your Heat. also I like the way that the MTX3 is built. this is getting harder...
