I would recommend the cheapest chassis! It's more important in modified wich chassis you choose. Stock is pretty much everything works, and i know this as i won national stock series last year in Sweden.

Good luck with your choice! www.andrefossto.wordpress.com

if you're not able to fathom spending a small used car price for a tc chassis alone, i'd look at xray and possibly destiny. i havent run destiny yet, but i have my own on the way, and i've heard nothing but great things about it.

I wonder where the Op is from as not everyone runs ultra high grip carpet! Biggest series in world being ETS, awesomatix barely rates a mention! Xray dominates. Asia being one of the biggest markets also near zero following and xray dominates. You have a great team and should be proud of that but your being pretty presumptuous.

It doesn't matter which chassis you race unless you have the best motor, the best esc, the best servo, the bestbattery and the bestdriver.

Even if you have today's best, that doesn't mean it will be the best tomorrow.

If you don't want to be the best, to understand what the car needs, to improve the setup, to search the last .01% in setup and driving and practice more, it doesn't matter if you have an old rusty shopping trolley or an F1. Could Stevie Wonder be F1 champion driving the best F1 car ever dreamed of? Could that F1 car be built by people that couldn't turn a spanner? It's not only the car, it's mind and spirit too.

Awesomatix if you don't care about the cost or how much time you'll spend working on it, Xray otherwise.

The Awesomatix cars are just the best designed cars to date.... BERT said so back then, and will reiterate today !!! I predicted it, and it came true, eventhough everybody ignores me. That also does not mean that the car will win every race on the planet....
You could choose the tc4.2(tc4+ BERT mods), and win in stock too.....

Then try driving your Awesomatix rather than saying your TC4 mods aren't ready.
