Default Getting back into 1/8 onroad

I've been out for at least 15 years, and this 1/8 GT class has interested me quite abit. Love the realistic look and the cars seem to handle like the real thing. I'm about 20 minutes from the Leisure Hours Raceway, so which car should I go with? Which brand has the most parts/upgrades available at leisure hours hobbies Joliet? I've got lots of disposable income atm, so price isn't an issue, just looking to dive back into this hobby with a quality car to get back into racing.

Definitely the Serpent Cobra GT. This is the car that is winning most GT events currently. Brilliantly strong, durable and very fast!
