Default Which new Car???

Im mostly into Monster trucks, but where im living now, it makes more sense to get an on road car. I looking at the HPI RS4. My buddy says i should get a Nitro 4tech, but I think thats kind of overkill for what i want at the moment. Anybody have any suggestions for what to get? Will mostly running on the streets and parking lots. Whats the ups and downs of the RS4?

lol, ok no traxxas, im not big on traxxas anyway, I think its over rated. Im quite tired of hearing about the Revo, though i do own an nitro rustler and 1/16 revo. So can me a hypocrite. Can't see and traxxas purchases in the near future.

oh if u only really new in my opinion traxxas is the Huffy of the rc world so many people have them because they r cheap just like a huffy i had a friend get a HPI rs4 evo3 i broke it in for him and was very suprised at how fast it was and for runnin in a lot or up and down the street it will handle just fine and last alot longer than a junxxas

For just knocking around both are ok but the traxxas is a tank and can take a beating, nei ther are big at your big race tracks but for fun they can be fun, and RS4 is more tuneable

+1 for the rs4 being more tunable but the traxxas being a tank my experience every one ive seen if u look at em wrong they fall apart, let alone stuff it into a curb
