    get a tc3. 4-tec is fast but a pain in the#@$%to work on. RS4 not as fast as a tc3 and not as adjustable.

    Also check out the HPI R40. The car is adjustable in every way and very comparable to the 4tec. I was looking at a 4tec for a while until we found out that the new 2.5 was a bad motor. There have been a serious number of defective piston/sleeve's and also bad carbs. so I would stay away from traxxas untill they get their probs fixed. But in the long run I ended up with the R40 and I love it.
