Default Which 1/10th race chassis

Hello

I am after the best race spec chassis. I came down to the Hot Bodies Cyclone TC, Team Associated Factory Team TC5R and XRAY T2 '009. I will be racing on asphalt, and won't want something that would need to be upgraded if I choose to race in a higher class.

Thank you

If you want a car that requires no additional upgrading, to me the X-Ray is the clear choice. Everything you need is in one box. It's hard to improve on something that's near perfection to begin with! Seriously though, I don't think many people would argue that the X-Ray needs no farther upgrades. Good luck in whatever you decide!

Xray is obviously the best chassis out there and everyone knows. I saw one post made by someone that said everyone compares their cars to Xray, which is the truth for the most part. No upgrades required just build it and go. Xray is also the easiest build out there. Almost every car out there require reaming this and gluing that. Xray's dont. The only thing your might have to ream are the arms, which there is no getting around on any car. Good luck in your decision.

Building my new Mi4, I never had to ream a thing but the arms. I will give Xray credit for their assembly manual, but Schumacher build quality is just as good.

The Xray is a bit stronger.

I prefer the TOP Photon.

But I can say that all the new cars are good cars.
Just look if you can get easy the spares for your car and look at the price.

While ive never built/driven Shumacer ive heard the cars are great but ive heard just a few minor problems building the mi3/3.5. Not necessarily mi4

Sounds like money does not matter so I would say X-Ray.

I like my tc5 because I can go to any hobby store and they have the whole car in parts on the wall. One day that won't matter to me. Today it matters a whole lot.
