Can't comment on the FW05S, FW05R, LDs, CDs, DVDs etc etc.

Default well!

Jag brought up a good point! I still think the Mugan would be your best choice as a starter car I think the 705 and 710s are good cars but they aren't as driver frindly as the MTX-3 That and the fact that Surpent part prices in the US are a joke and the biggest thing is the Mugan can take the punishment better then a serpent can But as Jag said guys will pic cars that they are use to driving

(there's some G4 guys to, but I like the 710 guys better )
The 710 is an excellent choice. I have both and I like my Pro but the 710 is a much better car.

Default mannn!!!

Gezzzzzzzzzzzzz Jag I back you up and you mess it all up I too have both and The Mugan is the better car!!!! All kidding aside now that we totally cornfused this poor guy On short to mid tracks I like the Mug. on the bigger tracks I like the serp BUT!!! if it's a long important race and the other drivers are a little wild then the mugan is the choice its tougher and can survive hits that a Serpent can't

Best car would be the car that you can get parts & support for from LHS or local racers. It nice to have a high end car, but if there is no support or parts, you will hate it. Serpent & Mugen are most popular, at least here in Florida. Some parts are interchangable, such as screws, hub spacers, and bearings, so you will be able to save money when you find a cheaper part from one brand to another. I prefer the 710, but I have no problems with a MTX-3.

Both Serpant and Mugan are good.
