Not to hedge my bet but the best kit out-of-the-box + value is the AE TC6.2.
There is a $100 price difference between the TC6.2 and the T4 base kits.
Both kits were improved with addition of ECS/DCJ style driveshafts. On the track - it is near a dead heat in terms of lap times. Both were wicked fast but drove very differently.
The 6.2 carries a lot of cornerspeed, generates a ton of traction and carves hard. The T4 is more neutral and feels free in the corners. I had noticed that the T4 mid-corner push on carpet but honestly on asphalt - has great steering input thru all phases of turn. Parts wear over the course of two months of carpet and asphalt racing - both cars have standard wear. My T4 needed a bit more chassis work and arm-stiffeners to get a more direct feel. I would like to track down short shock conversion kit for the 6.2.
For the golfers, the Xray is like hitting with a Callaway - forgiving; the AE is like hitting with a Taylor Made - aggressive
I spent a bit more to get the Xray to drive aggressively with the addition of the ECS', harder arms, different top decks and progressive springs. Equaled more $$$
For the 6.2 - just added the ECS-style driveshafts.
Regardless if you are an expert or an up-and-comer I would look hard at the 6.2 first.
Hope that helps.
