Default Need help deciding

Not sure if this is in the correct section but I want something that would be good for use in the street but also in the stock class at my local tracks. The Slash is going to be racing in the Slash Mod class at one of the offroad tracks near me in the Spring time but I want an on road car for the tracks near me. So I narrowed it down to
Associated TC4
HPI Sprint 2
What would be my best bet for a track car? Any other options that I could use? I need something that will be good but also have parts readily available.

Go to the local onroad tracks where you'll be racing, see which cars are popular there, and see which cars have the best parts stock on the wall there.

If that's how you've gotten to the three you've listed, then my choice of those would be the TC4, but only because I've owned one and was happy with it. I have no experience wit hthe two HPI's you listed, so I can't comment.

TC4 is a great basher, and if you get into serious racing, it's race worthy. I raced mine all last session and broke nothing on it. So, it's definitely a durable car.
