    I'm Looking for an on-road car that is race worthy. I have a yokomo gt-4 right now but i know there as to be something better out there. I was looking at the ntc3 factory team kit, the new cd3 by ofna and maybe the mugen mtx-3. Now i know the mugen is the #@$% but it's belt driven, I dont know if belt is better our is shaft driven better. I'm also looking for dependable car thats not going to need a butt loads of work after every 3 runs. Also handling is a very important so is cost of parts. please help, thanks a bunch

    well it looks like it should be a#@$% good car, but i haven't heard much of anything about Kyosho's. that cars gotta lot of light parts on it and a lot of new age things, so it's worth a shot if yuv;e got the money in my opinion. as far as it being race legal, thats a matter if where ur racing lets u race it. if the go by ROAR's rules, you should most likely be able to race that.
