It all depends on whether you just want to bash with it or race also. There is no class for 1/7th racing. However there is a class for 1/8th GT. Ofna does make and 1/8th GT as does kyosho. the best of both racing and bashing would be the Serpent however it is slightly more expensive as it is a kit.

With a coupon code the serpent is not that expensive. And the way it comes out the box is perfect for bashing. Should you choose to race the platform is there for a winner.

I was looking at it from a newcomers prespective, then I saw Vito is already in RC so not sure what to recommend. BUt an 1/8th GT is more robust and forgiving than our 1/10
