Default Which is the most value for money - 1/10 onroad?

May I know which kit is new, has great performance?
I have budget of around USD $500.
Thinking of;
Xray NT1'09, TM G4RS'09, Kyosho V-one RRR Evo 2 or Mugen MTX4-R.
Which is best among them?

Does your budget include an engine to run the car?
If it as you will be very limited to your choices

Well before the serpent ppl come in, you forgot the Serpent 733

All those cars are good, this has been covered several times. It all boils down to what your LHS carries as far for parts. What people race with at your local track. The most important of all, who is behind the wheel...

Get what ever is supported the most by local hobby shops.

I own two serpents and one xray... I don't know but I find it hard to get parts for the xray and find lots of parts for serpent and way cheaper. Xray pars are expensive. Just my 2 cents

I think the Edam/Pursuit is the best value.

If you have the budget, the NT1 can't go wrong.
