Default Which 1.10 chassis

Hello

I am going to be buying a 1/10 nitro kit this week...

I have the choice between a:

XRAY NT1
Kyosho V one RRR evo 2
Team magic (new one)
Mugen MTX4R
Serpent 720
Serpent 733

Any opinions on which I should get as I don't want to buy this new chassis and for it to be outdated or a newer chassis of it comes out within 6 months...

Thanks

Xray NT1 2009 spec or the new Serpent 733

They are both awesome kits! The serpent is about $40 to
$60 cheaper depending on where you buy.

All good cars aha and the new Team Magic is G4RS 09 btw, but as said go for the kit that your local hobbystore and track near you carry due to easy access to parts for that car when needed!

If you're worried about your new chassis becoming obsolete soon I'd lean toward a 733 or a G4RS 09. ALL the other chassis you mentioned are at least 2 years old.

The only thing with TM is that they come out with minor revisions of the chassis quite frequently. It's a plus if you see that as an opportunity to get improved parts / revisions, or a minus if you're someone who GOTTA have the latest model.

+1 for team magic. tried all except v10. for me, i like the RS09 better. just a simple setup and it glide any how i throw it. in and out every corners, it bites. awesome stuff.
