The Pro4 is the current QLD Champ and Aus Titles runner up (Stock). I used to race this model and found it very balanced and with the right chassis (2mm lower/2.25 upper) (Outdoor Asphalt) it is a very competitive car to compete in 540 or Stock. It will certainly help develope your skills and you can win with it.

I haven't driven nor seen many Evo 5's but from all reports they are a very nice peice of shafty crafty. Very low CG and they appear to be easy to work on. More steering than the MSX from all reports too.

Remember that you MUST drive a shaft car smoothly and the more corner speed you can carry the better these cars will handle.

I've seen a couple TC4's but with the release of the TC5 if you must have AE go the new car.

Stinger, Yokomo and TF5, no idea, never seen them in the flesh

If you really want to win though, I would strongly suggest a Scythe!Now that's a blatent plug.............................

Also you need to take into account the Pro4 is now discontinued and Pro4 specific parts may start to become hard to get.

Hope it helps

Cheers
Aaron

Talking

If you buy the EVO5, get the square front knuckles and spare c-cups if you are running at a track with hard borders.

Shim the car correctly

And go win...
