Start out with going to track where you plan to race, see what cars are running and talk to those guys.
When you get something that is popular there, you will get tons of help and a consistent parts source.

I have an AE 10R5 thats tuff as nails and very stable at speed.

All WGT car are capable of winning an A final in the right hands, these cars are very simple to setup and i couldnt say one was better than the other. I personly drive the gen10x which is an absolute dream to drive and set up. Your best bet is go to the track find out what others are running then make sure your LHS will support that car then just buy one.

I run an I -Force from Darkside motorsports and love it. The engineering on it is fantastic.There customer service is great and I have never had a problem with Eric and his crew.I like that it has the battery slots down the middle of the chassis instead of across the rear.Makes transition between left and right corners smoother(In my opinion). With that said, the I-Force car is a bit on the pricy side so I wouldn't recamend it for a beginner or if you're not sure about running the class.
Also, I have not tried any of the other cars so I don't know what to compare it to. I like the looks of the Associated car, but again, I have not done much research on the others that are available.
Just my two cents.
