Cool Picco RS600

Just wanted to ask. I have a picco RS600 with a .21 engine. I was wondering if a Mugen MX3 scale 1/8 aswell would be better than my car.If my car is tunned and set well will the mugen car be better? Obviously also depends on the driver hehee. Just asking... Please shre ur replies..

The MRX-3 is a much more capable chassis than an RS 600. The old picco will still be OK to belt around for fun, but is no longer a competitive car.

Its an old design, the geometry isnt as good as a later chassis, the alloy arms suck, the shocks suck & it is not as adjustable. I used to race picco both 1/8th & 235mm & now I have a Mugen 1/8 & a Serpent 235mm it is like comparing a Toyota Starlet to a Ferrari.
As I said before its all good if you just want to play with it, but if you plan to race competitively you will be hosed down by the later model cars. The RS600 had its day nearly 10 years ago.
