i guess i just need to compare part prices and availability with being in the UK.
Any advice on tyres, my mate say you need to keep changing compounds during a race nite as the grip comes up
Either car is a good choice and either can win in the right hands. At our track the CRC is the most numerous, however, it seems that they tend to break more often than the AE especially the top plate bit. Also the AE seems to be a lower maintenance chassis with their side shock. (The reason that there are more CRCs is because the track's hobby shop gets a better deal on them but they sell it at the same price as the AE.)
Tires choices will be governed by the track surface, humidity and the pahse of the moon. Best bet is to use the same compounds as the fast guys and trued to the same diameter.
