Hi guys and nice to meet all of u u guys are really good and pros. I need some advice on my first car coz i've never touched nitro before. I was intending to get a HPI RS4 3 w/ stratus cost abt $499 with radio. So far i haven't found out abt other brands...
only know a little about HPI. Btw i'm from Singapore... and btw wad is e difference between transmission : 1 speed and
transmission 2 speed? Is it really that hard to get HPI parts in SG?

Hi, don't go for HPI RS4 nitro 3, this car is blood sucker. It is folling a parts even without crash. It was first car for my son and I end up with $900 in hop ups and repairs, still didn't run. Get MTX3 or Serpent 705, NTC3, R40, but no RS4 nitro 3

I strongly back you up, Top Gun 777. Get MTX-3, Serpent 705, and nothing else.

Default thanks

thankz dudez for that advice, guess i'll not be getting the rs4 3 nitro lol. But MTX-3 seems to be kinda expensive right? How much does the kit with radio and all necessary stuff like starter cost? any idea? (in us dollars if possible ) hehe... thanks once again.

i have a rs4 3 ss and never had any problems from it and have runned alittle over a gallon through it...the difference from the 1 speed and the 2 speed is about 10 to 12mph i would say... the 2 speed makes your car faster and it is a first hopup everyone does to the rs4 3 rtr.... but if i were you i would look into the rs4 3 ss because it comes with better engine and also comes with a two speed but it only comes in a kit so you would have to buy your radio and stuff
