I'm gonna through in the original, dual decked 415 with the chunky supsension... that thing was awesome with rubber tyres and carpet... so much so it was still winning major races a good few years after it had been superseeded by the MSX onwards versions...

One of the cars that got Sedans in the hands of racers was the MR4TC. Barry Baker dominated the sedan scene and Reedy Race with his. The stock car could be had for under $160. My next all time favorite was the XXXS G+. Smooth car and great for the parking lot scene. Drove one at the 2004 Nats in Portland.....wow that was a great time.

I even had it qualified in the top 20 at the indoor champs the first year they allowed TC's at the race when they had only one class, stock. I think I actually still have one in storage over at a friends house. After that it would have to be the TC3, everyone had one so it was very easy to share set-ups.
I had the model before the one with all the red anodizing. Got it about 10-12 years ago. Worked with almost any tire on dirty tarmac and NEVER broke. Only thing I changed in 2 years of racing car parks were some pulleys and belts that got chewed by rocks. I wouldnt call it an HPI clone as it had a fairly innovative front suspension with infintely variable caster. Also unlike the RS4s of the time that were always snapping arms this thing had bullet proof solid plastic arms that were fairly flexible. I pulled it out of storage to compare chassis flex to my TC5r and it was so much more flexible which I guess is where the traction came from.

I had one, just wasn't a good enough driver for it. Seemed very fragile compare the Yok I had before it.
