Arrow Advice on street cars.

Hey I was wondering what I should get. I am into off road trucks right now but I want to get into on road cars. What is a good car to start with? And price doesn't really matter.

cant really get anything from what ppl say here! they either tell you to get the car they have, or tell you to get the car that such and such won....

i suggest you go around and see what other people are running at your track...find out which car has the most parts support for or easily order online. people at your track could help you get started faster with the same car and they could fill you in any setup tips or questions you dunno

What disaster is saying is true.. you need to check around locally and see who has what and what parts are available. I have a TC3 because most guys around here race them.. and my LHS carries tons of parts for them. It just happens to be a bonus that it is such a great car.

I but if you want my opinion aside from that.. I would say look into both the TC3 and the XXX-s. Both are great cars.

Right, if this is your first on-road car, you'll probably be in the wall a lot ... and break a lot of parts. So get something local that has good parts availability. Unless you don't mind waiting a couple days for mail-order.
