TCX and 417 for sure
You need also to have a gear diff, i think this is good for spec race.

Tr and find a setup from one of the pro guys to a track similar to yours and start with that.

Having a properly set up car would probably keep you happy considering the 416 is still one of the best chassis around.
Ditto on that advise also!

Like Nilks said, running what most others run at your location is the best way to start in any class! I did the same but went with the cheaper version of what most were running, the T3R and was not disappointed. Little by little I have found good used T3 parts to replace the cheaper parts used by Xray on my T3R. Found a graphite chassis and upper deck in great condition for $35.00, full set of turnbuckles $15.00. For swing shafts, arms etc. SpecR
You don't have to spend a ton of money to be competitive!
Just my .02 worth
