Default my next car

this was my first year racing indoor carpet and the car i used was a xxxs, i must say this is an excellent first car it works well with not much setup and it was cheap to get into because i didnt know how i would like the hobby but now im hooked. the only downfall with this car is 1. it's not current and parts are hard to come by and 2. since the car does not require much set up i didnt learn a whole lot about setting up my car and what certain adjustments did to the car. i will use this car for the outdoor season but i would like to purchase a new car for the indoor season in the fall, so I was wondering what you guys thought would be a good car to buy thanks.

Well, since you're already got experience with Losi, go with the JRX-S. It's a great car, perfectly balanced, easy to work on and very efficient. Plus, it's no where near as expensive as some of the other top end kits out there and with it being american made, parts support is excellent.

1.Corally RDX
2.Xray T2
3.Team losi JRX-S

they have other good car and nice car like Hpi cyclone,pro4,Tamiya MSX ect.... i will say take the on-road car that your hobbyshop have some parts and the car that everybody run at your cub cause if you need some tunning tips about your car its good to have some people running them!!!

anyways make the rigth choice and if you have some quetsion im sure a lot of people will answer you here!!

thanks for all your suggestions, keep em comin. the only thing with the JRXS is that 1. my LHS doesnt carry many support parts and 2. I havent heard a lot of positive things about that car..then agian most of it is probably personal opinions, most of the guys at the track run T2's but ive been looking at the max racing mx 707r and the tamiya 415 msx

Since there are several people runnning the xrays that would probably be your best bet as you will have setup information from dirivers and support locally
