What do you mean the car doesn't last more than a couple of months? I wouldn't take any solice in buying a car from a company that doesn't believe in making continual progress. Thats just an illusion of staying "current".

The current IFMAR world championship and every important national championship worldwide are currently owned by the Hot Bodies Cyclone family of touring cars. No other touring car has ever been able to achieve that feat. Street prices for the Cyclone S start at around $140.00 and all upgrades and parts from the higher end cars are a direct bolt on. The Cyclone Moore-Speed version should hit the street before the end of the year if you are looking for the newest version of this world conquerer.

TA-05 with a fistful of cash left over for goodies or a used 415. Local part suport should be taken into consideration also. Mail ordering parts can get tiresome and expensive. I've seen too many used XXXSs that are fast.

Funny. All MSX references. I get it. Lol lol lol.

Hmm.

Seems Xray is getting the local support in most areas. Hence the popularity. They do update faster than that stupid flash player on your computer, but all their cars are competative.

Tamiya TA-05 it can be upgraded as your skill progress.

The HPI opton is also good.

Any new car will drive better for the average guy than any old car of a similar caliber. I would stay away from used anything and the nature of the materials used in our hobby the wear is not noticable to the eye but very much appears in the lap times.

Many times lap times are improved by simply replacing old bits, so why start with a car built with old bits.

If you have money to burn then go for it. These hobby is quite expensive as it is now and buying cars every couple of months is not pratical.

All I can say is just get an MLP X10P4 TC and be done with it.

All the car out on the mrket right now is pratically have the same flatform

Because they have all the best driver.

Let have Atushi Hara drive an old TC I'll bet he can still win with it

It's not always the car it's all about the driver, you can have all the highend equipment you can think of if you can't drive a car you can't win right?

I run TC3/TC4 for a long time they are great car. I switch to belt co'z I felt it's a lot easier to drive. But like I said stick with what you have right now and just learn how to be a good driver.

I had one to start with and it was great. I'm running a belt now in the TA05, with the summer effort of homework and practice, this car is 4 -5 laps faster for me.
