the rs4 3 ss is not a slow car at all...if you are just playing around in parking lots and stuff you do not need a race car...the rs4 3 runs fine i think i have the rs4 3 ss and it runs great...but it wouldnt be a great race car but would be better than others...it will handle pretty good just takes some time setting it up...and it has plenty of hop ups available...but if you are gonna race the ntc3 is all you need for that..but its better to start out in parking lots and then move on to racing so you can develop some driving skills and knowledge about nitro...otherwise if you start racing right off the bat you are gonna break alot of things....

I just wanna know the comparison so i can get a picture of how much i've gotta spend. After hearing what u said, i guess i'm not gonna take the RS4 3. Lol, since it's so slow. The MTX-3 sure looks cool too man... but how much does it cost plus the radio? Coz i have nothing now... at all that does with r/c. thanks dude. oh yeah, what about the ntc3?
price of kits in S$
Serpent 705 = in the S$600 range
MTX3 = in the S$550 range
V1RR EVO = in the S$550 range
NTC3 = should be less then S$500

Radio..
Sanwa M8 ver III with servos and receiver should be ard S$600??
Futaba 3PK with servos and receiver should be ard S$600??

a lower end mid range choice would be a MARS or Sanwa MX3 but i am not sure of the price.. should be half of the above 2 radios.

Misc items
should be starter box
glow heater..
tools..
tools box..
fuel...
batteries packs..
body shells
paints..

the misc items should be around S$300 - $500 region.. depending on what you get, the brand etc. or you could choose to get them over a period of time as to ease the wallet load..

hope it helps..

If your going to race (since you mentined top of the line kits) pick a kit that a LHS supports for spare parts. No use in buying a kit if you cannot replace broken or worn parts. if you race sunday and something breaks saturday at practice, ordering over the internet wont help much for the race. Now if your LHS supports all the kits you mentined i would go for the MTX-3.

I believe you can find Team Magic/Trinity G4 in Singapore. Before you decide for any car (even RTR), take a look at G4 first or better yet when they are running on the track then go home and calculate how much you would need to spend; furthermore (the most important) how much it cost to maintain. Please, I urge you to pay a visit on this car... you would not regret

Parts support in SG? If yusoliddat is running on large tracks, the G4 will be a nice kit to have. On short tight tracks, the G4 will have problems with the gearing. The V1RR EVo or the MTX-3 will be better in that case.

K1471 G4 Carbon Brake Bracket (w/alum. belt tensioner)

Use above option and change side pulley to 18T and brake pulley to (I forgot), you will end up with 2.666 internal ratio which make it possible to get 7.3 for the 1st gear

kreidel, when I saw your first response I thought what a jurk. Like Trey said, we are all here for help and to help others. I'm not trying to be harsh, I'm just saying that is did come across as being a bit rude. Just remember that English isn't everyone's first language, and if you have a hard time understanding someone's post, you have the option of moving on to the next thread.

Anyway, my only advice to you yusoliddat is to take your time and make sure you get something where you have access to parts.

Kreidel,

If you get any funnier I don't think I'll be able to take it.

Once again way to show your azz man, atleast now we all know how small minded and ignorant you really are.

Maybe you are the one that should find himself a new hobby? Because I dont think your humor is appreciated here.

If anyone thinks I am wrong please let me know.

Sincerely,
Trey
