Default R40 2004 or V-one-RRR WC?

I have been wanting to get in nitro sedans lately, so far among all the great cars out there I rounded up with R40 2004 and V-one-RRR WC. So far to me the most diffference is just a $65 gap between these two. Please help me decide by imputting you guys' experinces with these cars. It doesnt need to be based on which one won what kind of titles. I just want to hear how the cars feel and behave differently. Thanks so much to any reply.

325 is such a tempting price for that R40 =p~ However, its too much trouble for me to travel to Ramsey NJ since I dont have a car.

I would have to put in my vote that parts availability aside, the RRR WC is a supperior car than the 2004. the RRR is a product of constant evolution and refinement. the R40 is still immature by comparison. (thats just my take, ive owned many HPI cars, and only have gotten my first kyosho now. But from what I have seen parts quality of the Kyosho is better than the HPI.

But then again you need to be ready to wait a couple weeks and order form HK for most of the parts.

Thanks a lot for ur valuable comment Personally I'm not worried about parts, just want to get started first. The problem is just both cars are too attractive to my taste. That's why i want to hear more about peoples experience before deciding my final pick.
