My answer will always be the same till it changes:
Pro 4 because it's the best...

I haven't driven much for touring cars, but I love the ease at which I can tune and work on my TC3 while running mod or stock, rubber or foam....it's a great car, and it's not expensive either!

Hmm, interesting question, I wouldn't really need to change my SD, I like it a lot . . . . but I regret buying a cheap charger first, an Intellipeak, then go get a good charger which cost me 80.00 . . . .

There are different choices now than there were in the past. If I was just getting started, i'd still go with a barracuda, the R3 based on reading the threads about all the cars. The Schui Mi2 would be a close second.

if I had to do it all over again, I'd buy a new tc. The tc3 that I had bough origionally was worn out, and got even more worn out by me not knowing how to work on it since I didn't build it.

I'd buy another FT TC3, another Airtronics M8 with the Novak Switch/Xxtra combo, another Novak GT7, another Airtronics digital servo, another Protoform Mazda 6 body, another 200 mm conversion kit, Fusion batteries and the new Team Orion Revolution 12X2. *whew*

I would DEFINATELY skip the Hardcore Racing Titanium chassis, what a (insert appropraite bad word) piece of (insert other appropriate bad word) that was no where near worth the money!!!!

I would have gone for the xxx-s G+ instead of the rtr.. I would have learned a lot more a lot quicker with the kit...

If I had to start all over again, I'd buy a TC3 right away, instead of going through all the other cars out there
