Default CT5 or HPI Rs4 evo?

I want a rtr .. and I am not sure which one I should get.. I understand the ct5 is very fast but also more fragile.. and the Rs4 is slower but it does take a beating... Is the speed on the ct5 realistic? does it accelerate quickly to this speed or does it take a long track? Also hows the the RS4's acceleration in comparison to the ct5? any input would be appreciative..

I had a CT5 and it is not as fast as they say. It does have a nice AM radio. Do yourself a favor and get a gpx4 OFNA and when you are ready bolt in a tz.18 OS. You will have a crazy fast car that handles and is of exc. quality. The CT5 is no where as strong as the GPX4. With the CT5 I went thru spur gears once a week. GPX4 LOVE IT I have 3 of them. Stock radio not that great though.
