run Jaco double pink orange front and double pink rear I think they are 26mm. Oh yea tc4 is a great way to start out. Good luck and have fun

I dont know your situation and dont claim to but if you can you should buy you'r parts from the new track or it wont be around for very long. The internet sales have really put a hurt on tracks and many end up closing the doors.

Xray t2 or T2 007 is the best deal for belt drivin car for the money on a carpet track and they are still very competitve.

Just my $0.02

I have a Hot Bodies truggy and it has been great and the parts are cheap for it. I have looked at the Cyclone S and it looks great, I won't rule that out. Stormer Hobbies has some great specials!

I do buy some things from my LHS like parts, tires, and small stuff. I have looked at the T2's but right now I am going to start off with something cheaper.

This might sound like a stupid question since I'm new to onroad but are sedan and touring different classes. For example, are these 2 bodies for different classes?

Reading whats here already, the tc4 is a nice car with cheap parts support but I feel it is more prone to breakage against say, a Tamiya ta05.

The tc4 is a bit dated, but it may have the edge on the ta05 for being competitive. Every car has it's pro's and con's.

As said already, start off in stock.... You won't regret it.

That's what I was told at my local track when I asked around, so I ended up with the TA05.
