Everyone seems to ask the same question . Hands down the TA05. There's so many threads on this topic. Just read through them if you want to know why.

Nope, but touring bodies will fit on the F-103GT chassis.

Is their a particular reason it has to be Tamiya? Are you racing in a series or at a track?

I would get the TA05, because it has the best and most versitile performance package of the group. It's initial cost is relatively inexpensive, and can easily be used as a street basher, just to have fun with, or low cost racer. But if the day comes and you wish to race in more competitive race classes, it can be made into a very competitive racecar with a few hop-ups. Good Luck.

The TT-01 has the Best Bodies, it`s Fast and it`s Tough.
The TA05 is a TB-02 with Belts.
-Both can be Hopped-Up to Look and Perform Better(have fun with those Hop-Ups). . . . .The TA05 has ALOT of Hop-Ups.....scary.

Take Care

Hands down TA05

F103GT is hard to set up and drive.
TT01 is really a Tamiya Toy. Pretty durible, but still not as flexible for growth
TA05 has many hop-ups, very flexible for adjustments (it has most all the adjusments of a high end touring car) it is pretty durible And it is the newest of the tamiya touring car platforms, probably will be around longer. Another thing to think about is local parts supply, as well as set up help from your local fast guys.
