ive owned th rs4 3evo, and its now been handed down to my brother, it handles alright but lacks the complete adjustability that a comp car would have, i realized this when i got my R40 up a running against him, and its so sloppy compared to the R40, if your looking for a comp car, ebay the R40 or another AE car...

although if its a LHS club race in a stock modified class, the car will do great, but beware its a .18 and some LHS wont allow it unless its in an outlaw class

Good car but not for comp

look for the following brands
Kyosho RRR, Xray Nt1, Team Magic g4+evo, serpent 733 (not out yet) or mugen mtx4

your not going to get far with a bashing car
the bare minumum you can get is a Team Magic G4s rtr, Kyosho V-one SR, these are high quality cars that won't break the bank, there not stocked with carbon fiber and you can always upgrade to their bigger brothers(V one RRR, G4+evo)
