There are a ton of options you can go with. But I have no clue what you mean by "fiddly"...

just be a bit more specific and you're all set

tamiya ta05 seems like a no frills car, but then it's not as fancy as xray.

Sometimes you dont need a car with all the bells and whistles to do well with, it can help more than hinder when there is less to setup and get right

The ta05 is a very capable car at club level, and beyond if you have the time to invest on one, parts are well priced too if you know where to go

Everyone has their favourite car, you just gotta go with what you feel is going to help the most

007 is one of the most easily adjustable cars. ITs design allows for quick changes and maintanance. Not sure what fiddly is. You could get a TL01 with no adjustments and 25screws to get at the differentials or you could just use the baseline setup on the 007 and just not adjust anything..

There is such thing as too much adjustments but the 007 does not have a bunch of stuff built in that doesnt do any thing like other cars with 25 shock locations of wich only 2 work. My 007 is only a few adjustments away from box stock and it runs quit well.
