The MTX-3 is better in all aspects. Handling, durability, weight.

you forgot to mention that out of the box the MTX-3 is ready to go. The R40 has to be upgraded a bit to be competitive. The R40 does not come with a one way either.

Disagree here. What facts are you basing this on?

Not at all. The new 2004 spec R40 is far better value than the MTX3. Biggest problem is that R40 2004 may or may not make it to the US.

2003 Roar - HPI wins over Mugen
2003 JMRCA - Mugen beats HPI

I think it is pretty even on all accounts.

Guys... and Gal... you see there is no question, Serpent whips all the others, and leaves only scraps for the mugens and hpis to fight over.




Serpent

Mugen
hpi


When Serpents hit the track the mugens and hpi's go... so they dont look so bad.

Default Still in transit?

Baxter have you driven the 710 yet? (I just saw the in transit phrase..)Well any hoo..I am familer with the Serpent's. I bought 2 of them and built one, worst kit I've ever built.. All the part's were not in the bag's as per the instuction's said and I, ( hubby) had to hand fit some part's.. Well after all that I drove it. Not being biased, I liked the 710 so much that I sold my unoppened kit, and is mailing the used one to a friend in Australia.. (Hi Sparksy..).. So once again to each his own... And once again Im taking up space... R.
