Finally some decent advice, buy the one the most people at the track can help you with and one you can get parts for. If everyone at your track runs TC3s buy one.

I agree local support is key, especially when starting out. I currently run the Yokomo BD Grainger Edition, and think its one of the best cars on asphalt - a few parts need changing that are weak but apart from that itís hard to beat. I also run my trusty TC3 (19 turn) and again I still think it holds its own on any low grip asphalt track.

I found out the hard way, I went for the Associated, closest LHS has one on the wall but only stocks TC3 parts 'not enough demand for TC4 parts',

at least I have one great shop who will help me out with parts about 2x the distance though
