The fastest guys in my club in Seattle are running ARC or Awesomatix.

I picked up a used ARC R10 for super cheap a few months back and immediately picked up a couple laps compared my (albeit poorly setup) TA07, and shaved a full second off my lap times after a few weeks of getting used to the car and dialing it in to my driving style.

Everything I'm hearing about the Awesomatix is that you can build it box stock and go out and be super fast. There's really nothing that the car needs that it doesn't come equipped with.

If you are looking for a low price car look at the BSR BT-4

If you can afford to look at the xray, the a800 isnt' too far off and arguably the better deal as you really don't need to buy any tuning bits when you buy an awsomatix.
I love my xray and it has been very easy to drive fast, easy to work on, and doesn't go through parts too often. i've prob spent $100 in replacement parts for it since i got it in march 2016 and it has been a great car.
If i was buying another tc now id prob look at the associated from your list. they have made great progress on their car over the years and apparently the new car has the same plastics as their new line of buggies which is great news.
Thanks, ...actually $500 would be okay to spend too.
going back and forth w/ the TC7.1 and Xray T4 now.
thanks guys, this is super helpful.

I read a review of the BSR BT-4, -it didn't sound good at all.

I've owned the 7.1 and it is very good on asphalt and with a alum chassis equally as good on carpet.

now I own a 17 Xray and it is the next level , the Engineering, support and quality and durability are 2nd to none. I run it on carpet presently with the alum flex chassis and it is great. I haven't ran outdoor yet.

The Awesomatix run good when they aren't broke LOL.
phatboislim and Yolks_r55 like this.
