Default MRX4 vs 950R

Guys,

I'm considering to buy a 1/8 car and contemplating between the MRX4 and 950R.

Can somebody give me the plus/minus of each car so that I can decide on which one to get.

In terms of parts, my LHS has both so that won't be a problem. I've gotta MTX3 and really satisfied with Mugen but never tried driving a Serpent. So naturally, I'm leaning towards the MRX4 but don't know whether I should try Serpent instead.

Thanks

Hi, You can't go wrong with both cars.
But I still prefer Mugen, just make sure the LHS has complete stock of spare parts.

Looking forward for your participation on 1:8 class in JITC for year 2005...

I am not biased, but get either the MRX4 or Evolva, period.

Have had a 950r and now driving a mrx4. I must say both are good cars but the mugen is more to my liking. That car really is on raills. Just got a secondhand mrx3 wc2002 edition and gonna try it out this week to see how that goes compared to the mrx4.
