Default EVO or SS

Hey guys im going to get a new R/C car and im looking to get a HPI, but im not sure on which one to get i have seen the EVO RTR and the Type SS, i think the SS would be better, but i would like to know which one is quicker and faster? and which one would be better in .12 200mm racing, if i get the EVo i would hawk the t-15 for a .12. so which one is better?

Cool HPI

HPI RS4 3 for me.
More upgrades can be done for this model even if they mostly have the same parts.

It sounds like your going to be racing. So skip the RTR and get the Type SS. IT comes wiht a .12 racing motor that will be the faster of the two, it also comes with the adjustable links and other go fast items. Both are going to require foam tires and racing body. You will spend more in the long run getting the RTR.

To be honest though if the TYPE SS is on the plate why not skip it and look at the R40 this car afterall is HPI real first attempt to releasing a "PRO LEVEL RACE CAR" And they will admit that previous 200mm nitro cars in there line up where never geared towards racing..

If your intrested i have a NIB SERPENT 710 200mm that might intrest u

SS by far. it has all the basic hop ups included and a better engine. basically all you have to get a a radio. you end up having the same price with the rtr and the ss with the radio.
