i have successfully run the Tamiya TB Evolution 5, the TRF415MSXX, the TA05, the HPI Pro4 and the XRAY T2'007 in both thse classes. you can get any car up to the pace really. setup, tyres, batteries, motors all play an important role as well.

i'v run yokomo LCG and BD, and currently running a T2'007. all the high end chassis are more than enough for your application. it all boils down to your driving skills, set-up skills, batteries, motor, tire selection, esc.

I thought only my town will use like Xray or Cyclone, these kind of expensive chassis due the racers will also join modified instead of 540 with only one chassis, i can't imagine as same for other sites.
Due i prepare the people will reply me majority for shaft drive cars.

I've run an XXX-S, Xray T1R, TC3, Corally RDX, and now I'm running a TC5.

So far, the TC5 is my favorite, although the RDX was very good. You can't go wrong with Xrays, either, because they're built like a tank and are fast.

Like has been said before, you can tune any of these cars to perform just fine.

However, the TC5 actually has made me a faster driver very quickly. I don't know why, but it gives me huge confidence and I can put it wherever I want on the track! Very easy to tune and you can feel tuning changes right away, even without checking lap times.

Keep an eye on the Schumacher mi3. It's doing really well in Vegas for having a really small team.

I just bought my first sedan a few weeks ago, and the Schumacher mi3 was my choice!

The main thing when picking a chassis is whether or not it has good parts support at your local hobby shop or if you can order parts and get them quickly.

I loved my Corally but the thing that turned me off it was waiting over two weeks to order parts directly from Corally because my local shops weren't carrying anything.

It may be different in your area, so see what everyone is running and then make your choice based on that. It's nice to be able to ask for setup help from other racers who actually run the same car.

dominating where? club level or world championship league? If you want to race at club level consistancy can win you races more than the cost of your car etc depending on the competitiveness

i believe running stock opens you up to many chassis types if you learn how to set up your car to the way you like it
for instance i race a msx in my club every one else runs an xray t2 i still beat the majority most of the time even though my car is a run down piece of sh.art,, NOTE the bloke who beats me most of the time runs the oldest xray in my club

i believe set up skills are as important as the chassis

Agree!!!100%!
I had an Xray before,but now Mi3.the best of Mi3 is the belt system is very low on drag,a bit better than xray(Sorry xray guys,no hard feeling)the car is easy to work on and set.

Any car is good, it's up to the driver most of the time. For beginig chose car with easy to get speare parts for you, and see what other guys driving as you will definitly need some help with new car.
And dont forget that battery, tire, motor, esc and radio make very important role but on the first place is training and driving.........
Have fun

I am just thinking to build a lightweight (no limit weights on regs) and with good acceleration drivetrain chassis, only for join 27T or 540 silver races.
Then I will call it "Stock Special".
Nice, isnt'it.

Are there any weight limits you have to abide by? It may be one other thing to consider.

Sounds good though, what weight were you looking to get the car at with everything in it?
