Default TC's

Pretty much all the top manufactures put out excellent cars, between Xray, Corally, Associated, Losi, Tamiya and Schumacher all the kits are well built and have up to date designs. I would go to your local track and see what everybody is running and as you said check out parts availability. Typically stores tend to stock parts for whatever car is most popular. For instance my LHS stocks everything for Xray and Associated, but just the bare essentials for the other cars. Hope this helps.
