We are having a debate as to what the ultimate parkinglot car is, where conditions are dirty and dusty with low traction. So what car has the best traction provided that the same tires were being used for all cars which in this debate the tire in case is the HPI X pattern spec tire.

Car must meet the following criteria:
4 wheel drive
27 Turn motor
GT style body (realistic)
X pattern tires
Why do people park in a driveway but then drive in a parkway?

It's got 12mm hexes and has the weight to give the tires traction

Seriously though... They're pretty much all going to be the same... It'll come down to driving, and MAYBE suspension travel if it's a rough parking lot.

Whats the best parking lot car....Your mom....... Just kidding swifty. No really a tamiya evo 4 ms with a pro module rear end. I think there is one for sale on ebay right now! I'm told the early losi cars work well. I saw a big goofey looking guy at the Ultimate Hobbies race last week do quit well with a Tamiya ta02 with the tire he used in 95. I was pitted next to him and those tires were like bricks Maybe we need to look backwards to move forwards.
