Default Serpent 733 or xray nt1 opinions please

Hi all,
Looking to get a car that I can get used to then race.
Been offered a serpent 733 and nt1 2011 version
What's everyone's opinions between both. Ease of getting spares and hop ups etc
I've also have the option of a serpent 747 too

I did see it but there wasn't much in the way of a review of the nt1 compared to the serpent. May just have to spend out and take a chance on one

Had all three and there all great cars . 733 and 747 are cheaper on parts.Had very good luck with my 733 TE .Its all in what feels better for you so any one of those 3 you really cant go wrong.NT1 is a very predictable stable car and easy to run.H

I run 733 and my friend runs NT1, both are good cars and fast enough. My choice would be the supporting parts, go to your LHS and check which parts are more commonly stock and go for it, you won't regret to take either one. 747 is the latest version then 733, more supporting then 733.

Tanks for the feedback guys. My local shops mainly do tamiya and kyosho and focus on electric. Got to travel a hour at least to a shop and they sell parts for both. Typical aye!
