gt4 belt drive, tc3 shaft drive. .15 in tc3, .18 motor in the gt4. Both kits are good because they are off of race proven chassis, and can be easily upgraded to race spec cars. The motor difference shouldn't be too much in performance, it appears like both are OS max made motors anyway. Looks like Associated is including fuel bottle, glow ignighter and bling chrome (ooh!) wheels. Associated body comes black or white paint job, Yokomo gives you different bodies to choose from, porsche, or gt body.

I think .15 engine on NTC 3 made by ThunderTiger in Taiwan and .18 engine on GT4 is made by Japan manufacture (not OS max made...) correct me if i'm wrong.....

yes they are more prone to breaking, also aa driveshaft car accelerates harder out of a turn than the belt driven car, i noticed that when i switched from the 710 to the Kyosho FW-05R,

Hey Marcos, did you analyse that if you were to compare stock gearing on the 710 (6.62 / 4.77) versus stock gearing on the FW05R (7.85 / 5.13), the FW05R will hands down be better for smaller tracks with same tire diameters in terms of acceleration?

they did something to the asphalt to smooth it out. smooth as concrete, with a few very small bumps here and there. thanks for answering my question too.
