Default M3

I just bought my first kyosho m3 three month's ago.It's nice but I'm not done building it. It's costing a pretty penny.But I hope it will be worth it, good luck and make sure you count how much it's all going to cost before you jump in.Your going to need car 450.00,radio 250.00,motor 350.00 starter box 100.00,electronics 300,Gas 40.00,tuned pipe 120.00 around 1300.00

I gotta agree with you on the MRX4-X thing. Just put mine on eBay last night - doing good, lots of bids.

But about the Novarossi comment, what about Werks, Sirio, or GRP? Or even O.S., which is more of an off-road oriented company(that is what I have - or had - in my MRX4-X, but it could easily keep up with Novarossis, GRPs, and whatnot)? True, Novarossi is good - I have a Novarossi in my old MTX-3 -but you have to recognize the other companies at our avail.

yep i know its not cheap, and not to mention i do have a radio all ready, but that is some good info on the starter box and tuned pipe. and wow nitro fuel is that much, i didnt know that but hey all things we do are not cheap!!!!!!!

The kyosho m3 evo 2009 world champ. But you will get better support with the mugen and the serpent cars here in the USA because so many people are running them. But I won't lie the serpent 966 comes with the mist hop ups out if the box (more for your money) bur the mugen and the kyosho I like better the sheperd car us also a great car. But in the end they are all great cars and it comes down to parts support. You also could wait that mrx5 does look pretty sweet. But kyosho will will they worlds again next year. Go team red!!!!!!! 2003,2005,2007,2009,2011?????
