You can look at the Tamiya FF03 chassis this is a front drive touring chassis and there is the Tamiya TT05 all wheel drive chassis. Just some of the cars you can look at.

Ask at the track you plan on racing at which classes they run and what most people there drive. You don't want to be the only person running chassis X when everyone else is running chassis Y. Certainly not if you are new to racing and might want help with setup or if you need a part while at the track. Speaking of parts, look into what your local hobby shops stock in the way of spares. You will break things and it sucks having to wait weeks to get running again.

the Tamiya ta05 is a very durable car. (I have not broken one plastic part on it except have a king pin pop out of the toe blocks, replaced with alloy ones and it's been fine since).

Ive raced mine for 3 seasons before retiring it to the shelf, and you can buy upgrades for it too as and when you feel that you need them.

well worth a look imo, and is more durable than a tt01!
