Some will do marketing on you by telling all the positive adjectives they know regarding their products, you will never know who's telling truth.
You wanted to know what was Durable and what you can gets parts for... If none of your LHS's CARRY parts for what you want to run then getting parts will always be mail order and won't be easy... All I suggested was that you ask what cars they carry and what they stock parts for....

Yes, I ran the MR4TC SD and CGM and NO ONE stocked parts for it so I carried a few hundred dollars in parts.... They don't call them Brokomo's for nothing...


I still don't understand what you attempt to gain by posting this thread... You obviously don't want the advice of others... All the current cars are equally as fast and equally as durable... They all have their quirks so the best car is the easiest one to get parts for...

Talking

I'll be honest, Saturday was my first time with a sedan. I have always driven oval cars and a little off-road a long time ago. I bought a Schumacher mi3.

They aren't as expensive as some ($360-390 range).
Parts ship out quickly and hobbyshops only have to call to order them.
I didn't break it, so it must be durable. LOL
There is a TON of setup help and knowledge available by the team guys on the Schumacher Thread and website.

If you want a good car and you don't want to fight setup, I would go with an mi3.

I really, really like this car!!!!

any suggestions!
Tamiya TA05/TA05R. Super durable as I'm a bad driver.
Been on par with all those TRF415 in my local tracks.
As mention, practice will make you go faster.
