I`ve raced every picco chasis since his first one (genesis in 1991), afterwards RS600, RS600 compact, and every evolution of integra. Some of the seasons with smal factory help through their retalier in my country (Spain). And i can express E-V-E-R-Y chasis had little and not so little defects. In spite i loved those chasis because of his durability, material quality and performance out of the box. But to be honest their production and factory machinery is very poor, and sometimes eduardo and alberto did some mistakes designing things like synchro I, alloy material on some series of suspension arms in compact edition, or the ultrasmall clutch pinion of 13 teeth in the new speed.

PD: Turbo9000 before my fist genesis i raced with a bmt 891, Great car!! i still love it.

I never knew that. I have two integras that I occasionally race and I've had no problems at all with that kind of thing....maybe I lucked out . But I can see how there could be some minor imperfections on the old genesis cars... those things had machined alloy control arms and very few plastic parts...much like the SMP slide, but this was over 10 years ago!!

and yeah... I have an 891...with the optional 3-speed tranny I still take it out and make a few passes down the street.

Mugen baby! And by the way, those that are saying an MRX-4 is coming out need to stop! The word coming from Mugen is that there is no 4 on the way. Why would there be? Look at the winning record of the 3! Get the Mugen and don't worry they won't be coming out with something else in the near future, those are just unfounded rumors.

Maybe where you live, but around here Kyosho stuff is sometimes hard to get hold of, and the cost is on the high side.

Mugen is the car of choice here.

I agree mrx-3 is one of the best choice, I race a mrx3 works kit and its awesome!!

Probably my best 8th during many years. It has the same winning specs as bmt891 or first vectors in its time: Simple, easy to drive, great performance out of the box with the standardt set up. Really nice to drive. Altohugh here in spain the retailer is really bad providin good support and the cost of kits and spares very expensive compared to others. Thats why many o f us here buy through internet in the states or hong kong. But even though i spend much more money i enjoy it and prefer than saving some euros with other cars i dont like at all.

I see advantages in both mugen and serpent.I still think though that the MRX3 is so solid it's almost boring which by the way is a good thing.

The 950R, requires almost NO work to the arms, unlike to older cars. It took as much time to "clean up" that car, as it did to shave off the plastic where the brake plates go on the mugen.
EVOLVA just build it perfect fit as good as the MRX3 but i take the mrx3 too the winternats because i go for safe.
aim the only driver here in Holland with the Evolva so first have to test more didn't run it yet

.....EVOLVA.......Haven't see it here yet!
Need to build my 950R tomorrow. And let my old MRX3 take a break. I'm really too lazy to build a new kit.

By the way,I tested several tanks the HYPER GP4 today. It's HOBAO team driver's car.....

Actually, isnt the evolva last years model Kyosho race car? Now they have the F2004...which now costs more than the 950.

"evolva" and the "F2004"is the same car (same part number, 31283). I have only seen the name "F2004" used at webshops. "evolva 2003" is the correct name according to the kyosho website.
