get the NTC3 of course. no really if your going to be running on parking lots, and not prepared tracks then get the NTC3. if you have a local track near buy and thats the only place your running it then get the serpent or mugen. remeber though, those cars are alot more complicated and built for the track, so that means race THEM... it would be a waste if your just bashing to buy a serpent or mugen.

after seeing the RS4 3 SS run at the track(stock)

i would never buy it

1. because of the engine

2. the suspension


but it should be o...k.... for bashing
