2) Which one has more potential to upgard?
3) Which one is easier to do maintance?

Please help

you can upgrade the fw-05 t with alot of the parts for the fw-05rr,or kawahara parts! rs4 is good for bashing but if you want to race i would recommend the kyosho

The FW05 RTR over the RS4-3 RTR any day of the week. Like Marco stated, with a few upgrades, it is a big track, competition level car. The HPI, no matter what the upgrades, is just a basher in the line of the Nitro 4-tec.

As far As i know is that 05-S comes with single transmistion, while 05-T comes with 2 speed transmistion and also it is RTR , no need to build it yourself

But I got another question. I find out, 05T comes with a newly engine from Kyosho, call GXR 15. How good are they comparing to other same class engine ???

So what are the bad things you have been hearing about the GXR15? I haven't started mine yet been to cold looking forward to the season starting. When the GS15R came out people were claiming it was shattering pistons, but I never had that problem.
