Default HPI EVO or RS4 3 SS Kit?

Just when I thought I had my new car lined up for purchase...HPI goes and adds the new EVO Nitro RTR to its lineup.

Anyone have any suggestions?

i havent tried or seen the evo run...but i do have a rs4 3 ss and like it alot it handles pretty good takes alittle work getting it set up...and its a pretty durable car but if you buy one ditch the bushings in the bellcranks and go ahead and get some bearings for it...because the bushings are sloppy...the 12 rss engine runs great.. hope this helps

Yes..it helps...thank you

I really did not see the the other kit was a RTR....and I really like to run my own electrics on the car.

Are the bearings you are talking about...hpi option parts?

i dont think so but they work alot better with bearings in the steering i got mine off ebay from rcboyz .65 cents a peice and you will need 4 that was the cheapest i had found them anywhere...to me that is a must once you try it over bushings..the bearing size you will need is a 4x8x3mm if im not mistaken..just any of those bearing's that size will do the trick..it just makes the steering feel so much better..if you get the rs4 3 ss i think you will like it..like i say it takes alittle work to get the suspension set up..but it does pretty good once you do considering the price you give for the kit its well worth it...
