Yeah, well Ford makes the best selling truck , but it's not the best.



There is no answer and if you do a search you'll find 10,000 questions just like this. All of which have turned into online fistfights.

A fist fight about the best touring car?

I can't believe that. any way the best car is the Kyosho Stallion Shin and if anyone disagrees that can chat with my baseball bat.

A Virtual Fist Fight....

Anyway, as said above, lots of opinion, lots of reasons, etc... Most will tell you to get a car people race at your local track, or the one with the best parts support at your LHS.

My vote is for Xray, it is a tank right out of the box.

If best means its won the most amount of races since it's introduction it would probably be the Associated TC3

You never get something without giving something away....the xray's a tank but costs a ton, the cyclone's fast but not as durable as it could be, the TC5 is cheap but ??? I currently run an xray 008 and a cyclone but, it's time for something new for me too so......IMO, just pick one!

If I had to start over today... right now... I would go with the TC5. Great all around in performance, parts availability, support, ease of use and maintenance. I say this and I currently have an XRAY, Cyclone and TM cars.

I know Associated isn't in your list, but they really do make great touring cars. The TC5 is one of the more durable and simplistic cars they have. I can get and replace most, if not all parts before the next heat. That might be an overstatement, but they really are that easy to work on.
