Another thing you may want to consider is deck clearance for lipos. The 415 you have to modify the bulkhead and can still only fit upto a 4000, atleast that's what a friend that now drives a 415 tells me. The TC5 will fit any of the 5000-5200 lipos, so thats a good choice. And the Hotbodies Cyclone TC is also a good chioce but you do have to modify a bulkhead a little to get a 5000 to fit, I milled off 2mm to get the new Thunder power 5000 40c lipo's to fit.

I'm kind of partial to the Hot Bodies, been running them since the first Cyclone came out 4-5 years ago.

I think all the cars you listed are capable of winning, you just need to find one that works for you.

Or, you can buy a Serpent 966 and slap on an electric kit on it:

That car is going to be FAST!!! If it had a Tekin ESC on it, it would be even faster.

Don't worry about it. You really need to be a damn good driver with a 415 or else you will be snapping parts all over the place. No matter how many parts you have to replace the broken ones, just remember that somtimes, not always the same parts break. You'll find your spare parts bin becoming dry fast. Now this is in NO WAY bashing Tamiya. I KNOW Tamiya makes very great cars and the worlds prove it everyday. My only criticism, one of two, is the finicky durability on parts. The second criticism is parts availability.

A TC5 is a great car as well. Just make sure to get slightly longer screws for the arm holder supports since they have a tendency to back out if you happen to hit a wall hard enough.

A cyclone breaks too much. But I guess you did not bother reaidng the PM I sent you about them. We have a person at The Track that is selling his Cyclone and got an Xray because of this. He is selling his Cyclone at The Track as we speak. However, unlike Tamiya, parts are easier to get.

An Xray is a damn good and durable car you can get. Like the Robitronic AVID, they make great asphalt cars and durable. But again, listen if you want. I sent you a PM about what I would recommend you get.
