I can't say a bad thing about the 3 Racing cars.
I have owned 2. And they are great I also own 2 xray t4s a 2015 and a 2018.
The reason I have the xrays is that occasionally I race at track in NYC and it seems every racer there is a pro sponsored driver and getting help from them is easier when run the same car

MTS T3 is a nice choice too. Save up for some ULP shocks from x-ray or Yokomo and you're pretty much set

I have a hobbyking Blaze R2 and it appears as if the T4 plastics will fit it. Comes pre-built with aluminum shocks. I haven't driven it a ton but it seemed to handle pretty well.

I personally do not care for anything from 3Racing, I find that there tolerances are not very good. I don't have 1st hand experience w/ the Xpress $100 car that many on this thread have mentioned so its possible this car is an exception??

Personally I'd recommend getting a used, Team Associated TC7.1 -its a simple car, easy to work on, parts are readily available and not overpriced. If you do go used, do yourself a favor and tear the car down completely then clean and rebuild to the factory spec's.
The XQ1S performs and has a ton of upgrade potential. I got over 1000 laps in my car and I have not broken a single suspension part yet and I have sent this car many many times. I have only broken the plastic lower bumper mount and body post. This thing is on pace with a T4. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap chassis that works right off the bat, and can grow as the skills progress.
