i would like to say a tamiya ta05.. because thats what i use and i love it.. i can keep up or even beat the other drivers using them expensive cars.. but thats me.. if you have the money.. get the xray t2 007 us spec(carpet).. its stiff for the carpet racing.. the hot bodies cyclone is a great car too.. i heard it out performs the t2 on the magazine reviews.. just my 2 cents..

Top Racing Scythe. They are just awsome, especially on tight tracks and there is also a US spec Foam tyre kit available now too. Easy access to parts for Japan and well priced.

Get the corally it is setup for carpet out of the box and the parts should not be that hard to find. Im a yoke guy but you have to buy the optional stiff chassis to run on carpet.

the TC3 is more then capable of running with todays current cars. Just as fast IMO with the right setup and driver.

But would that same driver with the right setup be faster in the latest cars?

Shaft for Stock
Shaft or Belt for 19T
Belt for Mod...

Which brand.... 007, RDX, or the new MI3.... but what does your local hobby shop support...

for local club, the list of good cars for a fair price can get very long....

I'm a high intermediate, low sportsman driver, I am also in the market for a new car and am wondering which one. I've won with my daughters TT-01R and my 4 year old TC3. I like the high end bling cars, but I know that my TC3 still can beat xrays, corally's, other blinged sportsman drivers. It's more about me having a good or bad night. I still have focusing issues.

I wouldn't recommend a TT-01 for a competitive car, but a TC3 can still get it done. The only issue I'm having with my TC3 is that the newer replacement parts just aren't fitting like the older parts; the car has more binding and isn't the effecient thing of beauty it once was. Maybe the molds are getting old or that the TC3/TC4 parts are slightly different.

Default New car?

First, go to your local track and see what the majority is running. It's always nice to have others around for advice and as an emergency parts source. Second, if you have a buddy that you intend to race with, try to race the same brand for the same reasons, sooo much easier. Check the local shops, but be careful not to get stuck with a car several series old as parts availability can be an issue. Personally, I enjoy the X-Ray cars and have found them to be capable AND extremely durable. While their high end models are expensive, all are....and the X-rays build well, run well, and I feel, worth the $$. Good luck, and you're starting out right by asking questions, get what you like, what runs at the track closest to you, and can afford.

mi3 should be released soon. but if your buying now, you can't go wrong with xray t2 or t2007. not to mention its also very durable like they said worth the $$$. TC5 should be price lower though, but the parts finish and the quality is not so good..

So you've seen the TC5 and raced one? I'm sure that's how you know the parts finish and quality isn't as good or are you just talking out your back end. I'm assuming that would be a NO. Wait until things have been released and have been raced before you start knocking stuff.

He might be speaking from past experience. I know TC3's needed grinding and filing on parts to get it to be perfect. At least from my experiences with them it was like that. I dont see how the TC5 will be much different. I guess we will have to wait and see.
