Thanks for all the replies guys.

To answer a few questions:
1). I have raced a few races before using a MTX-3 gas car, but my electric racing experience is zero.
2). The two tracks I will run on is quite small about a two 30 meter straights, and very a very tight and twisty track. The surface is very even and flat, while the other is very bumpy, cracks and abrasive (attached is a photo of the bumpy track). Both are outdoors.
3). Planning to run 1/10 touring scale, with virtually no limits.
4). Racing every 2nd weekend.

Another question I have is with the X-ray T1, is: what is the difference between the T1 and the T1 evo 2?

Hope that narrows my choices down.

Sami

evo2 is exactley what is says that it is, the second evolution of the t1, basically they took a lot of info on the t1 and reworked the little bugs out and got the car better


but in my opinion i think the TC3 would be the best for a beginner(or just starting out in electric), there is no possibility for getting rocks or other components in the drivetrain(just put screws in the nitro holes on the gearbox's) and less maitnence


but it seems that you already made up your decision, hahahahaha

i have driven and owned several high end tourings , and i would strongly recommmend team losi's xxxs, very easy to work on and drive. Parts support is someting you ll also need to take into consideration when choosing a car..

The Lifetime warranty sounds great, but, if you plan on using different connectors or hardwiring it, your warranty is no good. I have read that whole book and the warranty is like racerdx6 said, just an advertising gimic. Just my opinion though. BTW, all the cars listed below are great cars. Good luck
uhh, i used to not like novak, they were the only esc that i kept blowing up, then i got a LRP and no more problems

and i dont think that it is an advertizing gimic, just walk in and tell them what happened and they will give you another one(although i have heard bad things about LRP customer service, you have to remember that ae is just the distributer for LRP, not the manufactuer), or fix that one that you have


and i have blown a runner as well, but that is a runner, my 7.1's have never blown, or quantoms for that matter

The most important thing to make sure of when you get the car is that you can get parts for it easily. If you buy the best car out there (kind of a bold statement but go with me) but you cant get parts for it easily, the car isnt going to help you win races sitting on the pit bench with a suspension arm snapped.

My favorite too, proudwinner thats the cleanest x-ray I've ever seen. Now I have to redo all the wiring on mine to make it look better.

Those xray pics look great except for the fast that the car still has saddle packs. Those things are annoying.
