Default Need help choosing car! I know I tried search

I know it see like there is one of these threads every week, but I searched and could not find one so here goes.I'm going to start racing nitro on-road and need some suggestions for a car. I have been racing electric on-road for a while now and want to start racing nitro also. I like good equipment, I have an FK05 for electric with most of the hop-ups....I don't like excuses. The obvious choice in the NTC3, but I want to know about some of the others, serpent, ofna, kyosho, ect. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The Mugen MTX4. Has the reputation of Mugen with the parts distribution. While the car is unproven so far, it is probably a safe assumption that the car will be as good or better than anything available. The best part is that Mugen parts distribution is probably better than any other except maybe Associated. Fortuneately the car is a lot more durable.

the First thing is part supply by LHS, which brand do they have most?
then is how much you want to spend? for the kit? engine, etc...
tell us that so we can give you a appropriate suggestion

car breaker stated a crucial point......it depends on ur LHS supply on different manufactures....if you LHS doesnt support serpent....there is not sense in buying a serpent car.....if they heavily stock Associated then get the NTC3.......if they supply mugen.....go and get the MTX-4 that just came out......mtx-3 was amazing the mtx-4 is prob even 3210958203958 times better.......
then again its all about ur LHS parts supply and how much your willing to spend
