the Team Magic G4JR because it can be upgrated to a full racer its a good starting car to go racing with it for the first time

If your new to onroad your going to break some parts. It's no fun when you break and have to wait 2-3 weeks for parts to arrive. I say the NTC3. A little fragile but parts are plentiful and cheap compared to the full race breed cars.


Pass you soon...

BS, i mean none of your lhs is going to carry parts but you can buy them online from wolfhobbies.com and they carry every part you will need. i own one and its a really good car it sucks that none of my lhs carry parts for it but all i did was order extra parts that i thought was going to break. Are you planing in racing later? If you are ill say go for the team magic g4js if you not go with anything of you lhs shelf.

G4JR, i have one and had no problem getting parts online, via hong kong sites. ebay has shops selling items too so this isn't a problem.

the kyosho FW06 is also good with a few 3racing upgrades.

good luck with it.

ask yourself where would you like to go with it?, is it for your kid (s)?, by the name you have (not to stereo type )this doesn't look like the hobby for you.. then again if it is just for street play you better off asking your local hobby shop unless you don't mind doing online ordering ... IMO,, for street play you're better off with any shaft drive car, good luck

Yes, if no real racing is planned then a shaft driven car is better. You can take a look to the HPI RS4 and the Kyosho FW05 and FW06 models which are fun to drive and widly supported.

My kids race bmx nationally,and we do local electric r/c drift and slash class.We want to get our feet a little wet in nitro touring locally for fun.Having 2 expensive hobbies makes you broke on money and time,thus, Brokedad I am.
I am just looking for a solid RTR with available parts and upgrades to be a local fun racer.
