Default Sakura 2k18 Evo, Ghost18, XI NU, TC4 or ?? For vta, usgt.

I'm in the market for a pair of new cars, one for VTA and one for USGT, plus probably a third for spare parts. Then soon a 4th for the kids to learn on.

Surface is high bite CRC black carpet. Maybe an occasional run on asphalt.

I just can't make up my mind on which way to go. Suggestions? And why your choice?

Out of that bunch the Sakura 2k18 Evo would be my pick. Very nice kit for the money, leaving nothing on the table as far as upgrades or adjustments. You can buy the 4th car as a XI Nu sport kit and a lot of the parts can interchange keeping the same family of parts for the kids.

Your list of cars really runs the gamut. The 2k18 Evo (and maybe..) the Ghost18 are the best of the bunch. The Ghost 18 comes with a terrible manual, and I've liked the Sakura manuals so that makes that choice pretty easy.

The TC4 is out of production. So you don't want that. The Ghost18 is a much better car than the Sakura Sport XI ver Nu, but the manual is much better on the sport XI.

You're missing the biggest question though, what do the locals run? What does the local shop carry, or what can you convince them to carry?
