Well it's safe to say "We all prefer the car we're currently driving!!!!

It's really a moot point

Yeah.

We all know that when a RRR or a NT1 does well in a race, it's the car.

..whereas in case of a R40 or a G4, it's not the car but Hara / Dario's skillz .

In the USA, where the guy who is asking the question lives, Team Magic has very little support. They have blown thru several importers as well. That is not the direction I would go if living in the USA.

+1 and they also screwed Baker
if this was the only selection kyosho or Xray but if you widen your list I would recomend the new Serpent 733 I don't have 1 & Im not running sedan but after seeing 1 of the Team drivers testing it last weekend it would be my pick if I got back into sedan

+1
but I will not put down the 733 cause I am getting one also
probably the 733 will come out on top because they have so many cars on the event. If there would be the same amount of drivers with the same amount of cars now that would be a good challenge

At our track in Brendale Australia home of the 2006 worlds you could cover the cars with a tissue in their finish order in club races. I personally have had an x-ray , mtx4r and now have a rrr. I did back to back them as I had them all at the same time. I thought I was okay with my Mugen then tried the xray and was faster with it, now have the Kyosho and I am faster then both the other cars. Other drivers use the xray and mugen and we are all at the same pace the rrr seems to suit my driving. How ever not much support for kyosho and xray so most parts for kyosho are from over seas. Imo they are no better then each other but some are better supported then the other and have their own individual traits. Have to admit tho I cant wait to try the Velox V10.

which one? its the most controversial question..everybody is right in their own way. each car differs in significant performance and characteristic,and i personally see they are all equally fast on lap time. really depend on the driver and setup in the end. . no matter what car u drive, it all sums out to few questions, can u cope with the car? and can u fully utilize its full potential?

Everytime I see a post like this, the best answer I find is the one that tells the person "go with the car that is best supported with parts availablility and tech support" in your local area. It's just makes much more sense and makes your life so much easier.

Having said that, based on your noted location, I would agree with Scott's post:

My name is Ron and we race at our local tracks here in the Los Angeles area. Hope to see you at the tracks soon. I believe Crystal Park has a 2 day weekend Race Event coming up in August 15th to 16th. If you come to race or hang out, dont hesitate to come by the Mugen pits even just to say hi.

Good luck....
