Default Which RTR?

Hello people
I am wanting to get a RTR nitro on road and wondering which one is the FASTEST out of the box or closest to the pro touring cars out there.

Your input will be much appreciated.

Cheers!

The Teammagic G4S RTR is a excellent buy and just needs a starter box to get running.
Alternative is teh G4JS which is a budget version of teh new G4RS but is available as a chassis only and you would have to shop around for a budget engine/pipe/Radio/starter box etc...

the team magic RTR is ok. but the new released G4JS is a prebuilt kit. add radio gear and engine and pipe. the kit is quite inexpensive, and you can choose a radio that suits you best and decent servos that are worth running. engine you can get a JLR red dot, and skyline pipe. this way you will be getting a car that is fully upgradable but yet very capable as is. you may find if you buy an rtr , you might not like the radio or the engine you will outgrow . while its also good to be able to setup radio gear and fitting engines and clutches so you know how they go together, and you will be pulling the car down to clean and maintain. so while it may cost you a little more initially, long term you will get the better gear upfront and not have to worry about upgrading things every week or so.

Hi I can second that the team magic RTR is the way to go if you just want to pull the car out of the box charge the receiver battery and add fuel and your on your way, but you will need a stater kit for the rtr package which will be available at any hobby shop, if you want to add radio gear, engine, pipe then yes the best price/quality would be the team magic g4js. just do some research on your engine pipe and radip gear and then your set.
good luck!
cheers

I bought a NTC3 and was happy with it for a while for just palying around but is not a very good car for competivitve racing anymore. I wish I would have bought the team magic.
