Personally I have a Team Magic G4JR,it comes ARTR,without the starter box,glowplug and glow igniter but since you have a 710 these items should be already at your disposal.The JR can be turned into a G4 RS '08.Now about the included items,comes with a k-factory stratus shell,pre-mounted slicks(not foams),battery pack,rebranded futaba s3003 servos and a radio that lacks steering D/R looks like an old futaba.The motor it's a nice SH .12.
Overall i haven't had an issue,but for less than half the G4Jr cost i managed to get an used RRR WCE w/o radio and receiver but with servos and engine...So,my vote goes for an used one be it mugen,kyosho or xray,if you could find an 733 that would be sweet!

Hope i was helpfull.

And sorry if i made some mistake,it's been a while since english classrooms

That Mugen is a good deal for $350 if the engine is still in good shape and the car wasn't beat up too badly. Even without the servos...the car itself retails for more than the asking price, engine as well.

I managed to snag a Kyosho V-One RRR WC a couple years ago with two JP Modified Mugen X12 engines. One needed to be rebuilt and the other was pretty much spotless, but was broken in already. No servos or radio gear but for under $500 I'm not going to whine about it...so maybe do what I did, post a WTB ad in the forums and see what hits you get. Someone might be upgrading, getting out of the hobby, or need the money for bills/other things and will offload their stuff cheap.

if i dont get that i think ima stick it out and get a kit prob the 733 since its the newest and wont be outdated soon. or is there any other new kits coming?

im getitna savage x rtr to bash so that can hold me off on my on road and jsut use my 710 for now
That is a good deal go for it it is noe of the Top Brands it is a racer but you do not have to put anything in this car the Mugen MTX4 and the 4R share the same parts.

IMHO the MTX4R is still competitive as seen in the Worlds,some new option parts might arrive but a new platform i don't think so.

last thing i want is to buy a car then a new version comes out and parts wont be supported at my lhs. they dont like carrying serpent parts cause there is a low mark up. so thats why im not going for a 733

In that case you should go for the one that is supported by your LHS,even that a new car comes from Xray,Mugen or Kyosho their last model won't get discontinued in a short period (like the inferno 7.5).
