Best for me were Xray T3'12 and T4'14

Worst was Sakura Zero. Bought this as a cheap car for VTA. Nothing on that car fit like it should. It literally was a "zero". Second worse was the Vbc Wildfire. The plastics on the original one were brittle and if you looked at it wrong it broke and would bend hinge pins easily.

Best, so many great ones. First love? TQ Eagle. Then the original CRC Knife, then a Speedmerchant Rev.3 and Rev 4.5, next CRC XL, then Xi, now Xti. And of course, the vicious Gen, X10 LE. The Xi is probably my fave, had my best BIG race finishes to date with it.

Honorable mention goes to the Corally SP12G2, that car really taught me to drive and in dirt the Traxxas TRX-1. TC? Warpspeed Chassis'd X-ray T1, C-hub equipped. Foam TC was great.

Worst? Nichimo Exceed, Trinity Revolver 12, AE 12L and 12LW, yeah T-bars suck, lol. And also every rubber era TC I've ever owned. TC was fun on foams, now, not so much.

Best:
XRay t4. Builds easy. Drives easy. Doesn't break
SpeedMerchant Rev7, Same as above, plus the owner could not be more helpful.
XRay M18. So much fun but nobody races them locally.

Worst:
Corally Phi. Somewhat unfair to the car as I was new and hitting everything in sight. Car was somewhat fragile IMO and the parts were expensive. Beautiful car to look at and the machined parts were like RC jewelry. Hope Corally eventually makes a comeback.

Associated TC6. There are people that were really fast with this car. I could never find a good setup. While not up to Xray standards I thought the quality was fine for what it was. A few other locals bought them and quickly moved on to something else. Proved to me that while most current TC chassis look the same, they couldn't be more different.

Car was a weapon in its time. Just not a great choice for learning to drive indoors with hard barriers.

Best: Team Losi Junior Two, with ball bearing kit. Simply the best performance/price ratio ever, won my club's EDM carpet and dirt oval championships a few times with it, podiums racing other places, easily keeping up to more expensive cars. Really easy to put together, with a great manual nonetheless.

Worst: Bolink '91 Sport. Totally random damping in the back, cheap, handled like it. Burning the manual before you started probably gave you better odds of putting it together right.

Had my say before, but I thought of a couple of others that deserve a mention.

Best:

Tamiya Wild One - Survived me learning how to drive at 4 years old, nearly 30 years later, its still as good as new. Really kick started my love for RC cars.

Tamiya Sand Scoarcher - OK this one is tricky, i've never actually driven this car, but its one of the most important things I own, no amount of money will make me part with it.
Bought the day I was born, my fathers first "real" RC car. I was very sick as a baby, building the car was a great distraction for Dad.

Tamiya Falcon - Survived my reckless pre teen and early teen years. Gave that thing an absolute killing, some of my biggest ever crashes, and it just kept coming back for more. Couldn't kill it. Much fun was had with that car.
Yet strangely, aquired another, and it was a POS

Favorite - the Corally RDX was my favorite TC for sedan and gave me a "feel" that I haven't really found since. Something about it really suited my driving style.

Worst - Corally RDX....loved it but HATED working on it.

The RDX may still have been the best VTA car I ever ran. I had one that was beat to living hell and it always did it's thing (as a Colt 45 wielding Billy D' would say, "works every time"). It was stable yet very reactive, it just had character. I went through a ton of different cars after letting go of it....only recently have I decided to settle down again and focus on one ride. It was the pinnacle of Corally TC.
