V-One-S or TG10R?

Hey guys, i want to ditch my TL-01 and get a nitro car. I've been looking at the V-One-S and TG10R. Both are in my price range look very appealing. I don't know much about the cars so could you guys kinda teach me on this? I heard 5%-10% fuel is good for normal use right? Thanks guys, any info you can give is appreciated.

the bad thing bout the v one s is that it doesnt have a 2 speed transmission but u can get it optional and it doesnt have bearings for the side belt brace which are optional but its a great car. the tamiya tg10r would be an ok choice and it even has a lot of replaceable parts for it
i wuz thinkin bout a v one s but i got a nitro 4 tec pro

Cool

The TG10R has been whipping ass in a major way in Canada. It's already won 1st place at the Canadian gas nationals and TTCC.

Also the TG10R is shaft drive which is more efficient and requires WAY less maintenance.

It's also much easier to setup and go.

Each have pro's and con's. I think V One S due to handling and suspension tuning ability. The chances of breaking belts are few and far between....... not much to buy even if u do...
