Sure thing, if you're so used to drive a tank, it'd take a while to get used to drive a real model racing car.

Both good cars

Best way to decide is get yourself down to your local club and watch both cars in action and if you know the guys who own them ask for a shot of both cars and then decide its really down to personal preference as to which car suits your particular driving style

I hope this helps and which ever car you decide to buy happy racing

Well said, NiMo - the most sensbile posting so far!! There is a car for everyone out there, but any given car isn't suitable for everyone!

You just have to go back a few years in F1 when Schumacher drove for Benetton - everyone else who drove the car found it almost undriveable to the point where they couldn't drive to the limit. This was simply because Schumacher likes a car with certain characteristics which not many other drivers like.

What is the best car?

Well in the UK Rubber Tyres series the leading cars are the R12 and the G4, both are very fast but also very fragile, so you need to be a good driver to run one of those.
As for the rest of us, we need the tanks, so we run the Kyosho V1 range, Kyosho FW05 range or the Mugen MTX range.
Most fragile car at present is the R40, the plastic parts are simply too brittle for the colder climates.

At my club there are 2 FW's one stock and one ZT1
I can definately say that these cars are fast, but the 2 guys driving them are very experienced drivers as well, 10 years +

If possible test drive both cars and see which suits you, this will be the only way to make the right decision for yourself, not what somebody else that has a certain car thinks. People will naturally
recommend the cars they drive, but that car may not meet your driving needs.
