poor guy, you're really are confused.

Get Serpent 705! You'll have fun setting up the car and learn many things while getting the car to behave the way you want. Hence, you'll learn a lot of what r/c has to offer.

get both so you wont be confused anymore

Seriously both cars are good. I bought MTX3 because parts price is a little cheaper than 705. Go out ask a friend or go to your LHS who has 1 or both and ask them if you could try them. And when they did thats the only time you can say what car is the best for you. Good luck on your choice!

Default MTX3 than 705

hi mandinho,

Is this your 1st kit?
If it yes, stay simple... get MTX3.

I race 705, never MTX3, I even running a hobbyshop that is just
support serpent 705.
Some of our member using MTX3, and from what I see the kit is easy to drive, right out of the box.
S705 is having a huge amount of tracktion in front suspension.
As u know 705 is come from Impulse Geometry, which is created
8-9 years ago more important thing is designed for FRONT DIFF!!
not FR One Way.
But when your setup is par enough, nobody can beat you in fast chicane even a sweeper followed by hair pin! I guarantee that.
If u insist to start with 705, 2 things I suggest:
1. Use setup from Julius Kollf (mytsn.com), it is very very dead easy to drive.
2. Replace FR one way with solid axle at the begining

Good luck, enjoy racing!!

If you want to work on your car alot and have alot of money burning a hole in your pocket get a 705

if you like to drive your car and like to race on a budget get an MTX3

both cars are equal when set up right. The MTX will be more forgiving to setup from track to track.

my 2 cents.
