Questions?? Best TC

I know this question must have been asked about a thousand times but still..........what is the best touring car?I race on an extremely low grip surface and sometimes on carpet.I have had a tc4, team magic E4 and an MI3.I also noticed that Associated,Xray,Tamiya and Cyclone were pretty much the only cars at the IFMAR Worlds.Does this mean that they are better cars?so please state which TC you think is best and why.

Thanks in advance,

For me I would say the best TC is the one that hardly being broken I run Cyclone and TA05R, I broke tons of C hub and steering block on the track, so I had to either spend half an hour replacing the broken parts and setup the car again or gave up playing because I had to order the parts and wait for a week. Since the cars you mentioned are all very competitive and all run by top racers, I cannot say which one is the best. But I will vote the one which can let me play for the longest time on the track which is..... I don't know

I have said it before and will say it again, for me the best car is one I can get parts for locally and easily. A great broken car sucks if you cant get a replacement part.

Is this the TF5-Stallion from Kyosho? Is it available in the USA?

I have never seen this car before.

I run a HPI Pro 4, and soon will be running a Robitronic AVID. So far, the Pro 4 handles gorgeously. But then again, almost every car does once it is dialed in. I could be wrong.
