Cool Kyosho Evolva or Picco/Shepherd speed V2

I am in a dilemma which car to buy, i read that the Kyosho 2005 is an amazing car and the Shepherd is quite impressive aswell. What suggestion do you give? Any comments would be appreicated.

it appears that it would be a big jump in perfomance from 960 to evolva.......

Are you really? Look at your laptimes from before. I would say the jury is still out on that one.

Luke, Just so you know a Delta Xp4 is also a viable option, since it is similar to the Evolva.

The 960, evolva, MRX4 got way more setting possibilities then the Shepherd....

But, I would go for the one which you can easily get spare parts for.....

Mugen and Kyosho are race proven cars. The new Serpent looks good and seems to be really good.
I think nowadays, Mugen, Kyosho and Serpent are on the same level
