Default GOING OLD SCHOOL. Nitro RS4-2

hey guys my track is predominantly nitro based, and i would like to get into that genre. i race electrics at the moment and i would like to get into a second class as i have the car but i want to make sure before i spend the money to make it "competitive" it will be worth it. i have a bunch of upgrades in it right now, aluminum top deck, new lower deck, aluminum arms and a few other things. oh also i do have a 2 speed on it. most likely need a new motor and a high speed steering servo..but...i mean, would it be worth it? or better off getting a new chassis?

i could post pictures if that would help at all.

Get a newer chassis. Maybe a MTX-4R, NT1 or RRR.

I would put the durability of the arms and parts availability on the G4.

The 720 is a great chassis, but parts I believe have been discontinued. Also, it wont be as strong as a NT1, MTX4 or RRR.

The Kyosho in my opinion needs high maintenance, when it comes to pulleys and belts.
