In my opinion, MRX5 is faster, handles better, has better clutch, is easier to work on BUT is more fragile and unreliable and has harsh brakes. MRX4X is more reliable with more foregiving brakes but is slower and outdated.

It would depend on what level you plan on racing.

I know first hand that the MRX4X will take some rough driving but will not be as fast as the MRX5. I stayed with the 4x, as I'm not able the get the most out of the 5x. I have lots of parts, several cars and am comfortable driving it.

I still run the 4X and can hold some MRX5 drivers behind me.
As mentioned it is what level driver you are.
