My suggestion is to get something that has easy and convenient parts availability, preferably at your local track, if you intend to race. I like Tamiya (I'm an old-school scale model builder), but it is a pain in the neck dealing with ordering parts from overseas and having to bear the burden of carrying so many spares.

I like the look of the Associated TC6...the AE guys were sure flying at the KO Propo with it, it was between them and X-Ray, pretty much. I'm an AE guy in off-road and I like how easy it is to get parts, a lot. Honestly the TC6 would probably be my next car, if I were to switch.

but the release date for the tc6 is still not clear from country to country yet.... I am waiting to hear when the release is and no one has a clear answer.

Not only that I had a look at the new xray at my local track and it is very sloppy and you have to spend more money after the kit just to get it up to speed with other cars...
But it comes down to the full package that works for you mate....

So take all the advice you can get just dont go on what 1 person says... as they say what ever they are using is the best so thats what you should have... dont believe that crap thats for sure....

Good luck mate.
