It really depends on where you live. I think the TC5 is going to be the car to get in the US.

In America, the TC5 will outsell the other's 10:1. Despite its foreign ownership, Associated is "America's" brand. That alone will sell kits, that kind of stuff still seems to mean something to the R/C crowd.

The only drawback is that by the time they release the car. It will be way old technology. At my local tracks, Xray is the car of choice. Say out of 20 cars on a normal race day .. 16 of them are Xrays. It would be pretty hard to take down Xray especially when I hear the tc5 is a FK05 clone... wasnt that like 3 cars ago for xray ..lol .. I just feel like associated just fell asleep at the wheel and now they are going to have a hard time gettin back on the road.

I guess it would depend also on what part of the world your in too.

As for 1 year from now .. it will probably be an Xray product

but .....
I would like to see the Tamiya MsXX get my vote though !!

If you make assumptions about a car's performance based solely on how it looks, you might drive an XRay.

The Mi3 will only be popular if you can get parts for it. Lack of parts support will kill any car. Ask anyone with an RDX.

We'll have to wait until May to see what the TC5 will do.

What? You don't really believe it will be ready in April, do ya?

Probably the TC5, if it performs like the Xray. Some will switch to it because it's a good ol' American-Taiwanese car.

I would say Losi if the lipo boom keeps up?
And if the wieght requirements are lowered then Losi will dominate.
I think Losi has always been a little more costly than associated. But around here the two have competed pretty close. Right now I would probably buy the 1st to come out and try the other when it comes out.

To answer your first question, I think the battle for #1 will be between the TC5, the Mi3, and the JRX-S Type R. All seem to be highly anticipated amongst racers. However, Xray will probably re-invent the wheel with a T3 008' (or something of that nature)and that will be the racers choice one year from now. Personally, I cant wait to see the TC5 and the JRX-S.

I wonder how many RC racers there are in Slovakia?

I am an Xray guy myself. MI3 may do well, but not too many Schumacher cars in Southern California. Tamiya has good cars and are local but are as pricey for some. The JRXS didn't fair to well at the local tracks. My unbiased opinion is TC5. Even though the TC4 didn't do well, parts are least expensive to buy. A belt driven car will bring Team Associated back to respectability. Just my thought.
