do post your idiotic replys. people can ask whatever they want, thats why this forum is here. it is not "ask mop_iko.net" is it? if you dont want to answer,then dont.

as for which sedan is best, there is no cut and dry answer. try to keep parts availibity in mind when choosing and support for the car. if other people run a particular car then they can help you with set up if you have the same one-just stay away from people like mop_iko who obviously does not want to help anyone

It all depends on what you want to spend and what you are going to use it for. The new Kyosho FW-05R has gotten good reviews, but it will cost you about $390 before you buy a motor and electronics. The Mugen MTX-3 is a proven competition car which will cost you about the same. The Serpent 710 is pro level kit but its still around $380 or so. If you are just getting into nitro racing you would probably want to look into an OFNA LD3. You can pick up a pro level kit for about $200 and its a solid car.

To answer integ32's question, all of them are good cars. Like listed by some earlier posts, each has their good points and bad points. I have owned many that you have mentioned and competed against the others that I have not owned. But like many have said, make sure that replacement parts are readily available and easy to obtain. If not, then you are wasting time. Just my $0.02.

If you don't have a local shop with Ofna parts www.nitrohouse.com has a wide selection of factory and replacement parts.

Are you in SoCal? If so, Elite and Ultimate Hobbies has many Mugen MTX-3 parts and great service. Though, Mugen MTX-3 may not be a "pro level kit" like others mentioned, it will be the only car that never turn you down.

fyi, the newest kit of Mugen MTX-3 is the ProSpec version, still may not be the "pro level kit".

Something fully kitted out with Carbon Fibre and Titanium parts and weighing well under the minimum weight limit so ballast can be added were desired for optimum performance.

Any of those cars are capable in the right hands.

So it boils down to your LHS support and local racers prefrence thing.
