Of the four I would probably go with the Kyosho V-one RRR. Its a very competitive car and has proven itself in many of the big races.

I personnally have the Serpent 710 and I love it, but to break it down I have heard alot of good things about the V-one RRR also. So I would choose from those two.

Either RRR or 710 will be good enough. But most people say RRR is easier to handle.

From experiances, the 710 and RRR are the top choices. I have the RRR and my brother races the 710. Can't go wrong with these two.

i personally experience my shifting to triple r kyosho. im impressed it gives me the performance morre than i expect. my previous rc car normally gives me a 61 laps to a 15 minute heat but the 3r gives me 72 + laps.

Get the v1RRR. Better yet, V1RRR WCE. It is hard to find, tho. I got mine at rc-toro. Don't know if it is still available. I heard somewhere the last batch of WCE is in Sept.

Your other car must of not been a good car because an 11 lap difference is huge.

choose nothing but these 3:
Kyosho RRR
Serpent 710
Mugen MTX-4

If you are budget tight, you may consider RD Logics Mongoose/ G4 EVO

I was on the phone with kyosho USA and the WC edition kit will not be available until mid october unless you're willing to get regular kit and hop it up to WC version...so best bet is you can get mtx4 wich is coming pretty soon. On top of all is all about preferences and driving style, you can't go wrong with any of the cars above. With RRR my lap time 0.4 sec faster than my previous car (NTC3). MTX4 looks very promising and more simple IMO especially the front end of the car is easy to work on.

yes.. my previous car is mtx2. same engine, same driving. more laps
i think the mtx4 and the triple r is your choice. because basicaly, both cars are much the same.. also consider that those two uses 0.8 gear module.
