i think ntc3(of course),710 or mtx3.these are the most popular cars around and is proven on the race stage.definitely worth the money!

Unfortunately he said "BEST" car, not most popular.

G4 is the best car. The others are more popular, better supported, more readily available, etc.....but IMO if you gave Josh Cyrul each car on the same day and all were set up by him, the G4 would outperform all others

until the steering failed or the belt stripped (depending on which steering system you have)

Default here it is

MTX-3 with a Da Hellion body on it Man that just sounds fast.........Out of the three I think the MTX-3 would be the best car for you! (driver friendly)

Lots of good cars to choose from! Think about how you are going to run the car. Will you be running in any un-prepared parking lots? If so, shaft drive might be a better choice....Kyosho FW05R, Ld3, NTC3. If racing on prepared surfaces I like belts better.

I think the "Best" car depends upon your driving skills and the tracks you race on but there are several very good cars out there. I prefer the 710. You should see what cars are supported locally. You will break stuff so having parts available is a good thing.

There are no less than 50 nitro sedan cars on the market today but you'll probably only see 10 or so models in the IFMAR World Championships starting in a couple of days' time.

Go to your local track and see what people drive. Ask which car has the best support in terms of easily available parts nearby but bear in mind that getting stuff over the net is easy these days.

If you've never touched a nitro car before you have 2 options :-

1- get an RTR or
2- have a good friend/racer who is very good and is willing to help you always. Then get a racer's car (710, MTX3, V1RRR, FW05, NTC3, G4 .... )

Absolutely, 100% agree with you. And that's based on personal ownership and tests of the G4, NTC3, MTX3, Impulse Pro, 705 and Serpent 710.

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

I have the same prob as you onslack. But since I've driven serpent before (Impulse pro) and and some guys at my track runs 710:s the 710 seems to be the natural choise

(there's some G4 guys to, but I like the 710 guys better )
