Default Help me Pick new 1/10 Touring Car

Hello,

I am in need of a new Touring Car. Will be running stock and mod touring car classes.

So please tell me what is the car to get and why you feel this way.

This is probably not what you want to hear, but look at what the other guys at your track are running. Look at what kind of parts support your local hobby shop has for touring cars.

The ones at the track will be the easiest for them to help you with set up changes as well as the inherent broken part that the lhs might not have that you can borrow. The ones the lhs support make it easier to get replacement parts for.

Most all of new cars today have a very similar design with just a few differences. They are all very very capable cars in anyone's hands.

Personally I use X-Ray, I like their quality and durability, but they are on the top side of expense. TOP Photons are just as good, come with a nice bonus if it is a US spec kit and have a very good price.

Hope this helps.

exactly like Dondor says.

Xray is the most expensive one, but is also the most durable and very good quality. Also other brands like Hot Bodies, Yokomo, Tamiya, TOP Photon is all very good cars.

If you're NEW and getting into 1/10 for the first time I'd reccomend the HB Cyclone S. It's all plastic true---but it IS very durable--inexpensive, and handles very well in it's stock format so you don't need a lot of expensive upgrades!! It will get you started for a reasonable price--and parts are readily available as well as any hopups you'd like to do in the future. Start there, without breaking the bank--then move up to a more expensive ride later AFTER you've got your chops with this setup!! Complete kit with body --$129.00-- you can't beat that.
FWIW

OK I dont care about the local guys or what is available at the track. I am not new to racing or onroad. I am just getting back into it after a long break. I was wanting to know what the top items are then I will make my decision from there.

Want to know what you all think are the pros and cons of each car.

I am overseas. I am in Germany for two more years. I can get Schumacher for a real good price ;-) So does this seem to be a good option?
