It's an antiquated version of a Team Magic.. The current car has evolved through 4 generations of change and as much as it hurts to admit it, it's not a smart move. I just gave one away.

Depending on who and what tehy are racing at your track... Best advice I can give is to align yourself with others at the track.

In order of ascending cost:

MTX4R
EDAM
XRAY NT1
Shepherd V10
MTX5
Capricorn LAB C02

MTX4R is hard to beat in terms of price and quality at this point in time, though it's superseded by the new MTX5 but in no way a poor quality car.
