Look around your local area and see what others are running. All touring cars are capable of winning, it comes down to the driver.

Look at what the car was designed for, ie Carpet Foam, Asphalt etc. then choose out of that limited number.

There is no 'best' touring car, it simply is what works best for you.

ford racing has pretty much summed it up, the best car is the one which is setup the best and has the best driver controlling it

Imho you cant really go wrong with a Tamiya, theyre strong, reliable and parts back up is usually pretty good, but I guess everyone has their favourite brand

Think of it this way, even if there are 10 cars on the A final grid at your local club which are all the same brand and model, it doesnt meen a different car can't do equally as well - its all in the setup and the driver

Some may be easier to wrench on than others though, or others may be cheaper on parts, which may be bonuses to consider.

You pretty much summed it up by naming the top rated cars!
