The Hot Bodies is kinda like the L4, not that there is anything wrong with that. Since I run a L4 myself, but if I were to choose. I would go with the BMI.

What are everyones opinions on these carpet eaters.

I am kinda leaning on the hot bodies car, just becouse it is different.
If you want different get the BMI. If you want a spring car get the Gen X or Rev 5.

Both the Corally car and the Hot Bodies are T bar cars, meaning your 4 cell oval packs won't fit in them, personally I would also stay away from both those cars from a parts availability standpoint, especially the Corally, as it takes special pinions, it is also a more fragile car then some, if you want a car that works with your existing packs, the Speedmerchant, The gen-X, or the BMI would be the best bets, I would try to get whichever one you can get parts for the easiest, and can get the most help and support with at your local tracks... The other option would be to get a car that has a T bar and get some batteries that you can use in it, You don't need a lot of packs for 12th scale and then that would open up your options, if you are racing alot, it is going to be hard on your existing batteries to use them so much... Bottom line is, buy a car you can get parts for, and has good support and help both on here and at your local track, none of the modern cars, in the hands of most drivers, are gonna be any "better" or "faster" than the others... Good Luck!

You just can't go wrong with the BMI DB12R, By far the best bang for the buck

The new Speedmerchant Rev.5 pod has tons of room for brushless motors and the rest of the car is nothing short of stellar.

Plenty of pictures here:

That has nothing to do with the quality and capability of the cars. Only the amount of money a company wants to invest in winning that class. There are a number of smaller companies that make fantastic cars but can't afford the big name drivers to take them to the top in big races.

Everyone's missed mentioning the in-line battery cars...the Darkside Mx2 and the Diggity Designs. Not very well known cars but they do work well.
