Default Best stable of TC cars?

I am interested in getting back into electric onroad racing and want to start up with the indoor season by racing both sedan rubber and sedan foam. I am considering AE TC5F / TC5R or the T2 009 EU / US. Photon maybe?

What are your recommendations? Thanks.

agree, LHS parts

I'd look hard at the photon

Take a look at the threads for the cars you want and look at if/when the team drivers help with questions.

I was in the same situation as but for foam tire tire chassis.
I am going for the Photon, because of the overall impression of support, lipo friendly chassis(well thought out placement for additional led weight's) and the car look sooo sweet with all that red

You'll need a part if you break something.

i've had all the cars listed except for the photon but have seen it in action.

foam tires i'd go with the xray for sure its very stable and handles horsepower really good. xray and corally are the best foams cars that ive driven. the reason why id pick the xray is i like the steering better than the corally but the overall fell of the corally is nice its very easy to be fast with it. didnt really like the tc5 on foams that much.

rubber tire i like xray the most but corally was just as good so cant go wrong with either of those two.

I run a TC5, but after this weekends Torc, if I was to buy a new car, I think it would be the Mi4, at least till a TC6 comes along, but like what other people have said, it's down to each driver, and what works at your club.
