I would have to disagree with that. I think the Street Sport is faster than the 4-tec because the 4-tec has an extra belt-drive, which causes more friction and less speed (but A LOT more control). Due to it's 4WD, the 4-tec can blast through corners with ease, while the Street Sport (with it's fast RWD) can shoot down a straightaway at amazing speeds.
As for the RS4 Sport 2 (Which I'm sure you're talking about, right?), that's a competition model RC car. That doesn't mean that your SS can't compete... give it a few upgrades, and you should be fine.

The SS would be a good choice if you plan on racing other 2WD cars, where handling isn't as good as 4WDs. If you get sticky tires, like my OFNA Slicks, the SS won't spin out, though. Make sure your track allows direct-drive transmitions if you plan on racing.
