Alright guys, this thread is for sedans only, and is based purely upon how they look, not how they perform on the track, the company they come from or anything else. This is purely, 100% your opinion based on eyecandy alone. So, given the following cars and/or any other recent kits I left off, what's your order? Feel free to pencil in anything I left off.

TA05-R (or TA05 with all the goodies)
T2'007
Mi3
JRXS Type-R
TC5
RDX Phi
415 MSXX
Cyclone
Team Magic E4

(Not my order, I'll post that in a bit.)

I really struggled between the Phi and Mi3 for first. Two days ago it would have been an easy choice (Mi3) but now that I've had some time to get used to it, the wow factor has worn off. I still think it's a gorgeous car, but it looks very busy to me, and ultimately, I prefer the clean lines and understated look of the Phi. The T2'007 looks like a big fatty now compared to these narrow chassis cars. It's still pretty though, kind of like Anna Nicole when she was chunky.

The Mi3, 007, and RDX are some realy cool cars. I am wanting to be completly LiPo next year, so the Losi-R is still making the most sense for me. I had a TA05 hopped up to the TA05R specs and it was a great car. It wasn't as easily adjustable as my JRX, that's why I let it go. It all comes down to who's behind the wheel. For my applications I'll vote:

type-R
007
Mi3
RDX
