Default mrx-3 or 950?

sorry to post this in the touring car section but i get more response here than in the 1/8 scale section. anyways there's that question again. mrx-3 or 950? for those that have these cars, which one do you recommend. from a parts standpoint, the mrx-3 makes sense (although i could get parts for the serpent, just not as readily). my only concern with the mrx-3 is that i'm afraid that as soon as i buy it, they are going to release a mrx-4 and i'll get screwed like when i bought the mtx-2 and the 3 came out. i can get them both for the same price (the works and 950R are too much for me right now). pros and cons of both? or should i get a completely different car? btw my location favors the mrx-3. thanks guys.

Default mrx3

run what you can get parts for. All 1/8 cars are very competitive. Mugen had said there might be a back half kit to update the mrx3 but that talk faded after the worlds.

The MRX-3 is the best choice. Parts are CHEAPER and its easier to work on

It's better to run what others have that way you can compare set ups and get help easy.

I run an MRX3 becuase it is easy to set up and cheap on parts, and most of the guys in my are run the MRX3.

Only one guy around us runs Kyosho and he is switching to MRX3 too because lack of support and parts.

MRX3 or 950, Both cars are competitive car . I think you will not go wrong with both car. Kyosho is good car as well .

I think you should play the car that you could get supports.

I vote for MRX-3.Parts are cheap and easy to get.

Never worry about the MRX-4 may come out later,because you will see 950 Double R at the same time.
