The thing is, you dont need a popular brand of car for it to be a competitive car, at any track.... period.

that is true, but parts support is the BIG thing..

I used to be the only one running a Tamiya (414MII or the 04R) and couldn't get spares at ANY track I ran at...That really sucked if you broke a part you didn't have stocked in your box...

So this is a 2-sided coin - but you really need something that you can get parts for, nothing is worse than having your race day ended because you couldn't get parts to fix your busted car...and having to do mail order isn't always the best alternative...

so +1 to everyone who suggested about looking at what most guys are running at your track...and then ASK the LHS if they can even get parts for XX chassis, if they tell you "no" then (no matter how cool the car is or how great is it to be different) it might not be worth running

true, its a two sided coin but the consistant racer with a durable car usually isnt too bothered about parts support if the car holds up well

If you have that feeling you're going to break something then yes, its a good idea to have a local lhs that stocks your parts...

Dont want that to sound wrong, but there are cars out there that can see a good amount of incidents and hold up well from it

There is no 'best' when it comes to the latest batch of TC's on the market at this time.

All of the TC's out are awesome

I dont think you can go wrong with any of them, but having parts support is nice!

just depends on what is being run at your track and parts at lhs

also if i cant choose i look at the color of the alloy

i really like the tamiyas especailly the new 416

by the way blue is better
