eh, keep ur present ride. save $ in these times and go with what you know and have parts for. even if a new car was .1 faster b/c its CG is .05mm lower. doesnt make up for a 3-5sec traction roll or a board meeting

best of luck

I assume since you aren't going to take time to do proper research, you're probably not going to take time to find a proper setup; so honestly it probably doesn't matter what car you get.

Default Ok

1. Go to the track where you plan on racing
2. Observe the top 5 finishers in the class you want to compete in.
3. Visit their pits, talk with them about their chassis and electronics. Ask about durability.
4. Evaluate what you learned. If any drivers seemed particularity knowledgeable or helpful give their equipment some extra points.
5. Visit the forums here at RCTECH, read the last several months discussion.

+1

And without knowing your skill level, goals, budget etc...no one can can really help you.

But with that said I have been running a Corally Phi 09 and like it.

The guy's a tech master who's been a member of rctech since 2001 I'd say even if he's been out of the game awhile he probably still has some set up knowledge.

Also here's a link to a great car that has all the necessary upgrades and would be a really good asphalt car for not a lot of $$.

Pit you probably get a lots of stupid fucks to answers here from stupid fucks like this one. Doesn't ask you what your experience of onroad is. Just assumes that you must be ignorant dumb ass cause you want to know what the lastest rides are and what people think of them.

I am running a Traxxas 4-tec with a 21.5 and its wicked fast. Maybe not the best handling but I can run up front with the best of them and I won't talk to you like your a fucking retard cause you are lazy like me.

Now just don't ask any more stupid fucking questions!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love ya bro and your are stupid fast with what you have. I would go with the cyclone if I was in you shoes bubba.
