First thing, is check which cars you have parts support for locally. There are a lot of good touring cars. I personally own a NTC3 and an MTX3 and like the Mugen better. These are the only two that have local parts support, so I didn't really consider any others. The serpent, G4 and the Kyosho are good as well.

mugen is definatly the WAY stronger car. have beat the hell out of it and havent broke anything in 8 races. pretty much bulletproof. handles way better on less than perfect surfaces(parking lots). dont get me wrong, the ntc3 is a fast car, but too fragile for club racing. it is also not as good on temp tracks. barry can make it go fast, but can you? dont think i am just plugging mugen, i raced an ntc3 for over a year. you wont find a product for the mtx3 called "the fix".

MTX 3 Prospec all the way. This car tops the class. However I am hearing good things about the Kyosho RRR. Still to new to recommend but try the Mugen you wont go wrong.


Thanks

Suntok, I don't think you heard the story about when Miss Mugen and Mr. Magic when out drinking one night ... there was a bad car accident. But 9 months later ... a new hobao was born. It must have been some kind of Immaculate Conception ... or something. Luckily she didn't get bit by the snake at the bar.

But whatever, I bet the little [email protected] is fast ... he's definitely got her @ss.

Suntok, I'm from the PI. I'll be going there next year. Could you send me a pic of your on-road track. I'd love to visit and race there.
