Default a over all good chassis for entry level racing

I posted a few weeks ago I was in the market for a used on road 200mm complete roller. Will I think I got over my head with chassis. So this is what I have been offered. Im looking into a MTX3 prospec, Team Magic G4 or Xray NT1. what are there differences?

i think for the money and ease of use, the Xray nt1 is probably the best intro car

It will depend on the rules of your local clubs, but for me the best value would be either the Edam Spirit or the HoBao GPX4 RTR. The HoBao is a pullstart motor so you won't need to purchase a starter box and comes with a rear exhaust motor with pipe and radio gear.

The Edam you would need to purchase this all separate like the Xray NT1R.

As everyone says it really depends on the most popular chassis at your track. At my track it's mugen, so a MTX4R would be a choice as many guys have lots of spares they'd hand out .

Remember it's about keeping the wheels turning, buying a chassis that no one uses runs up a huge bill of spare parts required to keep them circulating.

NT1 is good in that many other chassis have similar parts side belts and such that others may help out with in times of need and vice versa.

Consider that you will be out of pocket well beyond the price of a chassis if you head off on your own for a cheaper initial investment. Save the money youi will spend supporting your cars parts for components like engines, radio gear and tools etc.
