Questions?? What is best On-Road Car

I have CEN CT4r and HPI

The CEN is falling apart and breaking plastic, The HPI does not have many suspension and Caster, Camber and Toe adjusts. And Shocks are CHEAP.

All of the top cars will blow those two away. Take your pick. Shepherd, Mugen, Serpent, Kyosho, Xray, no bad choices there. Even the TM cars get the job done.

I love Mugens but they are getting a bit old now so there will probably be a new car soon. The Shepherd looks fantastic (and just finished 2nd at the Nats) but isn't out quite yet. The Serpent is the new hot car and Xray just won the Nats.

Pick the one you fancy for whatever reason, price, parts support, local racers running it to help you out, bling bling, whatever.

Personally I'd go with local part support as the top factor, but thats just me.

- Serpent 733
- Serpent 720 '09 car
- Mugen MTX4
- Kyosho V-one RRR

+a slew of others. The cars I listed are the more popular cars at my local track. It comes down to your personal preferrence but it would be good to get a car that some are running at your local track. So you don't have to chase a set up, or wonder what Shore tires to run, or what mm to cut your foams at etc etc etc.


All the cars I personally listed are excellent cars and get the job done +a bag of chips.

1. X ray NT1 09
2. Kyosho RRR
3. Mugen MTX4
4. Serpent 733
5. TM G4RS 09

what I'm thinking is that serpent + TM plastic parts are ez to break... but if u are a good driver that doesn't crash all the time then it is a good car...
and X ray never breaks ... from my experiences (I'm not a pro driver so ...ya)
