Default Mugen Mrx5

I 'm very biased on this one, So my vote is for a Mrx5, But all of the current 1/8 cars are very good without a doubt, Its any given Sunday for any of the top platforms Good Luck

IN MY OPINION From what i have seen the Serpent is one of if not the most durable car on the market, it is a simple car to work on and is competitive out of the box. The mugen is the current wc and deserves the title it is a great car and fast but so are the other cars too. In the end go with which one you can get the best support on parts for, and then practice, practice and practice some more and enjoy the most intense class of rc car racing their is.

My Greek Bro You are Amazing!
The probleme is that there's only Japanese and no English.
I can't wait to receive My car and I can't find any special options. They're all sold!

I owned a lot of brands but Capricorn knocks them off from looks to finish handling durabilty and the list keeps going on and on. And as DS said its fully loaded.

Get a CAP its an amazing car + lots of support in RCTECH not that it really needs.

In the end trackside end user support is better than online support in the U.S. it varies big time in certain states
you can't fix everything online but u will be able to fix any issues trackside
