Really!! Another thread on what's "the best". I'm sure this has been discussed before if you just searched it. There is a new thread every week it seems like. Out of 10 comments you will probably get 10 different answers BTW.

You have to run what I run, because I run it it's the best in all possible situations no matter what and the rest is junk.

Summary of the majority of responses you will get.

Go on amain and look thru all the options, pick out a few that appeal to you then find their respective threads on here and learn some of the pro's and con's of each one, do some research then you can make an informed decision. All the major brands will be very good cars.

I started as a racer, as did all of us in R&D. We don't put out cars we aren't confident are leaders in their class.

Doesn't necessary mean they are the best. But if I was PAYED by Losi I would say the same thing cause I would have to.
