You are confusing things, Team Magic designed and build the Mongoose as a brand for RD Logics, based on their own platform G4 series...the quality issues where the same on the Mongoose as on the original G4 E, C models, that where improved on the G4S and succesive models, but there is no new Mongoose.
The Rd Logics Mongoose and G4 brands is the same as what is currently happening with Team Pursuit and Edam, they are the same car different brands and ,maybe minor spec changes, but both manufactured by Edam in Taiwan.

Come on people the guy only wants to know about the G4+Evo and not the history of TM.

ok so my suggestion is not to get the +evo but wait a little bit longer and maybe get the G4II. my suggestion to you is to get a car that has parts easily available, both the cars are capable of winning.

I really like how you say things bro. (both the cars are capable of winning.) <--- this means that both cars are capable as long as they have a good driver!!!

that is true some like it on the safe side in exchange. i tried most chassis before, i wont look back to RRR evo once im in G4evo+. this car is mind blowing easy to drive,decent amount of balance, and its very flexible with setting. that is just my experience

I <3 my G4+ Evo. I've driven the RRR a few times but never owned one. I was thinking about getting the G42 but I have far too much invested in parts on my Evo that I'm not.

I think I'll probably wait another year before I consider getting a new car. I'd like to see how the Velox and Motonica turn out. Not to mention the G42 or the Serpent 733. Then there's also the possibility Mugen or Xray may have something new. Then again there is that used but sexy, fully-Kawahara'd MTX4 sitting on the LHS shelf...

That is a good idea, in my case I never get rid of my cars I already have a fleet and I love every single car I own.

i certainly hope so btw i did try out with v1rrrE2 wc recently. not much difference generally. i heard some rumors saying this chassis is not easy to drive for an almost loose asphalt surface. out of the box, with factory recommended setting or not, the car like to over steer every time in a long clockwise corner. can any one verify this?

[QUOTE=Riketsu;5896514]Stick with the Kyosho, and forget about the TM.[/QUOTE

++1

Support on parts from TM is a joke. Stick with Kyosho. I had a G4RS and it was the biggest dissappoinment. My buddies started refering to me as Team Tragic because the kit let me down every time I put it on the track. it couldn't get thru a 5 minute qualifier without stripping a gear. And there was never an issue with my gear mesh setting. I'm back to running a Kyosho RRR Evo 2 and couldn't be happier. Have had the RRR since last October and have stripped 1 gear due to debri on the track.


Regards,
Speyederjedi
