Thumbs up The BEST Touring Car

So to date which touring car is the best.

To what i think:

X-ray t-1 : many many many setting, need a lot of money. Lots of steering Pro car

Pro3 (HPI): Setting are easy, Cheap. Most important, must drive like atsushi hara or convert the car into a Yokom. Understeer pro car

Pro2 (HPI): Setting are easy,a little understeer but outdated.

TRF 414m: Setting (many and easy), Need a little money. Pro car

TAO 04 R: Setting (just nice), Cheap, but it little heavy.

TB evoII: Setting (passed), Very heavy, need a little money. a lot of pick up. Can take more crash than other cars. Under steer

TC3 Factory: Very nice car. Setting (many many) Need $$$. Pro car
steering ok

SV10II (limited): Setting (many many) mid end car understeer

Atlas ym-34 type t: Setting (limited) car comes fully hopped up. Need $$$ on the first buy. pro car (almost there) under steer

Above it only what i feel as i own and driven all those cars above. Pls update this thread if there are other cars i lefted out like...
Corally, alex, rosse, and many many..



thanks

you left out THE BEST TC in your list. The Schumacher Mission PRO! Drives like a 12th scale on speed and is very durable.

Default you are right

The only thing i know about this car is that it is very difficult to change spur gear.

Other than that it is a car to look out for. The old axis two was good but the parts like belt lower hinge pins are the killer for axis two.

Hopefully there will be better respond from drivers to mission than axis II.

Personally I prefer the XXXs. But when you get down to it there really is no Best Car just the Best Drivers. At our local track and I am sure that everyone can relate to this, the fast guys are fast no matter what car they drive. It is 90% driver and 10% equipment.

There are alot of good TC on the market but I'm still waiting for the next generation of touring car design, a higher level with the same price. I hope to be able to say someday: " this is really something special" when a new touring car is released. Dream ??

its not difficult to change the spur, it is only like 4 screwz or so. I run on carpet so my gearing doesnt really differ that much.

Yea, you forgot the best one- Yok Special.

Affordable, includes all the good hopups, verytunable, and quite an easy car to set up. Best of all, it's a very neutral car. You won't experience over or understeer when you start with the basic set ups for your racing environment.

What else could you ask for besides a little better Manufacturer support in the US.

The best touring car is the one that crosses the line first on that particular day.
