Tamiya Grasshopper/Hornet. Was the first rc car for a lot of us. First one of hobby grade that was reasonably affordable.

As for racing, that would have to be the RC10 Gold Tub, grandfather of the current design.

Don't forget the T-Maxx rejuvinating this hobby.

2w = RC10, no contest.

4w = XX4, again no contest.

Truck = JrxT, first real race truck

Engineer = Gil Losi Jr. (influenced all of them and history just keeps refining them).

That is a loaded question. There is no "best" to every person. I have my favorites just like everyone. Different cars suit certain tracks slightly better than others--or you just might like the engineering that went into a car.

If one car/truck stood head and shoulders above the others that is the only car you would see at big races.

B4/T4 for sure but i havent driven the kyosho rb5 yet, it looks really good.

The 501x buggy is hella strong too and performs very very good, the only time i saw one break and i think it may have been a fluke and it was a right rear axle, but the hot bodies rear axle fit with some shimming and it looks like it would be stronger. And you would have a good chance of finding one of them at your LHS

The greatest RC in the History of RC.

Granted it was a failure on every level, Sure looked good though.

Here is a post I did yesterday in the nitro forum, but still applys. Someone did say that the Xray will get you laid, I think that is the "true" test of a good car.

Break out the boxing gloves, mouth guards, and my dad can beat up your dad insults. It will start with a simple, “I prefer the 808 over the MBX6R”. Followed up with a “yea but”. Then it will turn into all out war, nobody will be singing “Kumb by yaw”. And the anger really starts to seep in; people will be getting mad, kicking the dog, throwing the middle finger up at the monitor. Going out and robbing the local 7-11. You will start abusing alcohol, drugs and prostitutes. (The $2.00 kind and not the hot ones). Start cross dressing, (some of you are already there) and after weeks of soul searching, you figured out that you should have been born a girl; you sell your “808” and opt to move to Trinidad, Colorado. (Sex change capital, look it up) and get the “changes” that you always new should be. You will renounce your “NAMBLA” membership, and get ready for your new life. All of this came about because someone asked, “Which is better”. Do you really want to know?

Yes, I’m in therapy…

I don't think you could narrow it down to just one car or truck. Any list made would have to be a top 10 type list. But that list would have to have the Sand Scorcher, Rough Rider, and the Gold Tub RC10. Without those the hobby would be very different.

I'm a Losi person, I worked at Horizon a few years back (10) and got the Losi bug then. Even though I prefer helicopters, I love racing. So my vote would be the...

Today... Losi XXX CR
Yesterday... I would agree on the RC10 gold pan for the same reasons others said.

BTW.. I'm selling my xxx cr. Check it out..
