The Mugen is no longer in production, and the the Kyosho is being replaced for a newer model, and word is that its going to cost as much as an 1/8th scale.

I would go for Serpent, it has the most value of the 3, it has the newest technology, and the price cant be beat. There's setups all over the internet, and the serpent website has a lot of information.

Give them a call to see when the EVO is coming in, or go ahead and get that one. Kamikaze has great service, and that counts!

Lol!!!!!! All of the cars cost around the same. The new kyosho car will cost the same as the shimo does and it has the newest tech. The kyosho and xray are the best touring cars you can all throw in the shepherd v10. The 733 is a great car it is just not the same quality as the nt1.

This is a question of where you run and what's available to you. You have to decide which car u like the most. The Serpent is a great car I can say this from experience driving it. It responds well to set up changes and very well designed. Now the XRay is also a quality kit. And very popular. It goes together well. The Capricorn is the nicest and best for the price! But again the 733 evo kit is nice with all it comes with. But only you can decide. It's your money.

One more factor not mentioned is your skill level.

If you want the best of the best you should take a look at the Capricorn LAB-C01.
It's the only car which comes fully tricked out for high-performance racing.
The car comes in well under legal weight and has the lightest drivetrain and best clutch of all cars.

If you're just starting out I would recommend an NT1R, you still get an high quality kit but for a very affordable price.
After a year of practice or so you could then switch to a full blown racing kit.

I would say whichever you have the parts availablity for if you shop locally, and whichever one is most appealing for you.
Sure that Capricorn is probably the greatest car on the market, but to show it's potential and it's flaws you would have to be a damn good driver!!
Only now am I realising the potential of my RRR and Ive been using it for a year now.

Everybody is raving about the Novarossi Flash .12
If you want better, get the Murnan Modified version
