Default Best VTA Chassis/Roller?

So I know this is a loaded question, but what do you think are the Top 5 Cars for the VTA class and why are they the best?

I use a regular T2 and I think it does a great job. A nice added bonus is the fact that you can find them pretty cheap now that the T3 came out.

That is a loaded question and I think you have enough there to have a good start. Now all you need is five sets of wheels and tires, five VTA shells and you will be set.

Yeah I know I didnt help at all, but the truth is if I only had any given one of the chassis that you listed, it would make a great VTA car.

for me, I needed durability, and the academy str4 Pro II has been that. Parts on it are very beefy, excellent for what I need.

i think all the cars are competitive in this class. figure out what is important to you and go from there.
