Thumbs up This has been a good year for Touring Car fans

This has been a good year for TC fans so far, and it is only March. Well, can we ask for more? It all started with the release of the Tamiya TB Evo III late last year. Then came the announcement of new Corally car. Then the Losi XXX-S G+, then the surprise release of the new Yokomo SD1 shaft car, not to mention the HPI Pro4 on the horizon. Xray coming out with a T1 w/ both pillow ball and C-hubs, and of course the Raycer. Not to mention the latest release from smaller Japanese companies like the Kawada with their new version Sigma, the Alex Racing Barracuda R2, OVA T4 XP, Tech MY02, the list goes on and on. I only wish that it came at a better economic time for all of us, then we can buy 1 of each!

Yes, but when it's all said and done, the TC3 will continue to rule.

I see touring cars getting more and more cars entering the 190mm class. The off road scene is dieing out, but with the advent of the B4, hopefully off road won't be so lopp sided.

I like that new yokomo. I still can;t decide what I liek better though. The Pro 4, MR-4TC SD, Barracuda , or the Evo 3. I think they are all really good cars. Losi and AE will always be competetive though...

That's because Losi and AE hired the best drivers.

I got to see the EVO3 yesterday, and the quality of the car was amazing. Sort of like an Xray with a shaft and no need for options..
