If someone sees a car win the worlds and rushes out there the next day to buy one, then I would personally call them a "checkbook racer". If they spent more time on their driving skills and less time in the shop buying the latest and greatest, they would probably have better results. My opinion anyway...

I love the way my mongoose handles and it has been going faster as I learn to catch up with it. he he. This past weekend, after a month off due to lack of funds, and armed with my new Mongoose, I qualified faster than I ever have before and broke into the 18 lap bracket in 5 mins(no one has ever gone into the 19 lap bracket). Even though the car was new, nothing much else had changed and yet I was able to run faster. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing that the MTX-3 or V1RRR has over the Mongoose/G4. We'll have to see if the MTX-4 is better or just different.

they are all top cars!!!!!

I have had my g4 for almost a year now and i am very happy with it.i am always consistantly up in the top 3 and i race against mainly other g4's and rrr's and mtx-3's.now im not bragging im just trying to prove a point that the g4 is just as good as any other car out there

Thanks to Dennis Richy for giving me a spare rear belt so I can replace them for the 30min. final, Team RDL is definitely helpful at the track!

RC Racing here is quite popular here.
In my country Indonesia, we have a 80 metres straight line and quite big track. Not to count some smaller 50-60 metres straightline tracks. Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand also have some very good tracks.
