i think if i were to start over again, id buy an xray. having said that. heres the typical, generic best answer for this question

"find a car that fits your budget and is distributed by your LHS. that way people at local events can help you get your setup and give you tips, you are also helping a local business and helping to keep the hobby alive in your area"

that is the best car.

now back to the fun stuff.

Losi rules.

I'm sure you'll hear from a bunch of different people about their cars.. but don't listen to them. The Pro4 is THE car to get!
TC3 why go with a copy when you can have the "REAL DEAL" and parts avaliability.

pick up a cheap TC3, and get an aftermarket graphite chassis like BMI or Warpspeed if you are running on carpet. Pretty much makes it like a Pro4 then.

The XRay is really nice vehicle. We have a sponsored driver by us who runs for XRay and we got to see the new car, very nice handling! Maybe this Wednesday I will get a chance to drive it.

I say just run whatever car you like, that your hobby shop stocks parts for, and make sure there are people to help ya out if you get lost with setup.
