As another member posted in one of the other 1000 threads on this topic - how long is a piece of string?

The best car for one person can be a disaster for another. Recomendations on buying a car:

- Get one that is supported locally - parts support
- Think of durability... if you are new to the hobby, you are going to break stuff
- Popularity - as a new driver, you want to make sure you have setup support at your track. What car are most using... and why?

Lastly - get what you can afford -

All the current top of the line chassis are excellent. I suggest seeing what people run at your local track, and buying the one that has the most support/drivers at that track. Then you can get setup and maintainence tips easily.

Joe,

I dont know how deep your pockets are but if you are starting out and going with a rdx, or other "tip top chassis" prepare to have the check book ready. I am by no means saying these are bad cars, as they ARE one of the best ever made. I am just saying if your just starting the parts for these cars are alot. I mean arms(WHICH YOU WIL BREAK)as so the best drivers around, are like 30 bucks for a pack.
Have you looked into a tc4. Great car as to I still run mine. Not gonna break your bank account and every hobby store has all the parts. No matter what you get go tro the LHS and see if they have parts for it, as do the track. Nothing worse than breaking an arm and having to wait a week or two just to get another one. that car might be the best out there, but useless if you have to wait for every part.
LMK if you have any questions, Ill help you out

Just my opinion

This Question has been asked thousands of times ... IMO .. The best car is the one a persone like the best ,, Theres alot to choose from .. The Car " is one that will please the owner .. Cant say parts support . Cuz most will do what it takes to get the parts they need as well as hop-ups.... everyone drives diffrent . and has there own options of what is best . but remember it is whats best for them .... Yes some cars are easier to work on and others more difficult but still the owners of these are very happy ... It comes down to what "You" think will work for YOU !! and bring you the most fun and enjoyment ... Being that we as R/C racers see every option out there gives Us more interest and ability to find what We are looking for ..;;;

Just my 2cnt's ...
