The RRR is the newest design followed by the R40, then MTX3. There is definately a wide range if parts out there for the HPI and Mugen.

I think the RRR has the best performance potential of the all the cars listed if you want to race in foam tire class. From what ive seen the G4 and the hpi actually would be better if you were doing alot of racing with rubber tires.

First off Bobby, they where talking about real cars, not radio shack.

Hehehe, I like the Mugen Prospec, and the R40. I haven't driven the RRR yet, but I'm sure its as good. I really don't think anyone can tell you which is the best, as it really comes down to the driver, and your setup.

My thing about the R40, is it does break more than the MTX3. At the HPI challenge alone, 4 of the best R40's on the track broke CVD's. When the hobby shop ran out of CVD's, I had to customize some MTX3 CVD's to fit.

The Mugen on the other hand, has taken some big hits, from a certain (caugh) FW05

Both seem to handle just fine, and I've ran simular times with them on the same track, with the same motor. So it really comes down to, what does your local hobby shop support? Nothing like needing that last minute part, and can't get it cause you went with a car they don't carry parts for.
