kyosho evolva m3 vs mugen mrx 5

Looking to build the ultimate 1/8 onroad nitro car. No expense cap. Want to build the ultimate. I have been told mugen mrx 5 and my preference kyosho evolva evo m3. Looking for the best available. I will race some and concentrate on top speed on the weekend as well. Planning on going with an RB or Maxx engine. Any suggestions on cars and engines???

Hi, I would take a look at the Serpent 1/8 Nitro car. Much better quality
than the ones you mention. If I was choosing a Kyosho I would choose
the Inferno GT2. Just my opinion. Regards

Hi, Forgot to mention that if budget permits, the fastest .21 Nitro Competition
engine is the Nova Rossi Flash 21. Pretty expensive at $500.00. If you want
the ultimate this is it.

PS. The Mugen MRX5 Just won the European 1/8 Nitro On Road Chamionship with Nova
Rossi Power.
Tha Kyosho Evolva won the 2009 World Championship
Now just the hard part of making a decision. My advice is to go with the one you like. All are good.
Regards
Norman

mrx 5, evolva evo m3, 966

Thanks for the input Norman. My LHS is pushing the MRX-5. He says he can't get the evo m3 and serpent. Don't know why amain has both. He is also pushing the MAX power. I personally like the RB

Hi Yood, If your local hobby shop stocks the MRX5 he can also have spare
parts which you will definitely need at some point in time. I would personally
get the MRX5 as it is presently the best 1/8 Nitro car and you can use the
powerplant you like. You will not be sorry. Good luck. Remember you will never
be happy if you buy something you don't like. Regards
