I would recommend a G4S by teammagic if you want to know about the this car go to G4S thread this car kit offers a lot of extras like the best clutch in the market and hop ups included.

Id go for either a Kyosho RRR WC or a Mugen MTX-4 (which ever has the best parts support. The RRR won the worlds , The MTX-4 hasn't been raced at a big event yet but at most tracks around the world its kicking ass. I wouldn't get the Tamiya not that great peformance wise same for the NTC3 they are pretty much the same in basic layout which is outdated in my opinion.

The RRR and the MTX-4 are the top cars at the club that i race at and in the rest of the country. I also recomend Novarossi engines ( N12LL3 ) for which ever car you get.

Kyosho or Mugen ?

My standard MTX-4 is beating and doing quicker lap times MTX-3 Prosecs , S710's , R40's and G4's and those cars have heaps of option parts on them. wait until the MTX-4 gets option parts put on it

mugen mtx-4
very high quality car. you won't be disappointed. or you can go the hard way and get other cars first. in the end, after you try the mugen, you will know what i'm talking about.

Its all up to you. If you want top and high performance cars RRR, MTX4, and S710, would be great choices. If yuo want to keep your wallet full, Team Magic G4, and Hobao GPX4 pro would be good choices.

I agree, Ive gone form an R40 (which is quite heavy compared to other cars) to a MTX-4 and I aint going back other guys have said the same thing going from Kyosho and Serpent to Mugen aswell.

quality is outstanding from Mugen haven't had any problems with my MTX-3 or MTX-4

All cars are good it will come down to your personal preference and look around at your local tracks and ask what cars are they running so that you will have an idea and finally find out what brand your local hobby shop is carrying so that in case that your car breaks down you can buy the spare parts that you needed right away just my 2 cents

its stupid to ask this question serpent, kyosho, mugen. Which ever one has the best parts support in you area end of story. No mugen mtx4 is the best or RRR is the best or 710 is the best. There all good cars all can turn the same lap times with proper set-up.
