Default Need advice on what touring car to get

Hey guys, I'm mostly an off-road guy but one of the local tracks has indoor carpet. They race oval, but also road course.

I am looking to get a 4WD touring car that wont break the bank, but has decent performance. I have been out of the on-road thing for so long everything is different!

I would love the new AE TC6 but its way more than I want to spend. It looks like the TC4 is only RTR form which kinda sucks. I don't need crappy electronics. Maybe a used FT TC4?

Is there anything from anyone else that is pretty fast, not too expensive and has good parts support?

Checkout the Ofna touring car. It seems to have great performance at a low price. There is a thread here on rctech about it.

Why not buy a used TC5R? I was able to find one with an Exotek chassis for $125 Shares the same suspension with the TC6 (mostly), parts are cheap, and pretty much available everywhere. That is if you wanted to stick with AE.

There are so many good cars out there.
If I was looking for a car, and cost was an issue, then I would get whatever was the best all around deal here in the rctech forsale thread.

it's worth spending the extra dough on a high end car whether new or used, especially if your like me and i get hooked on the hop ups. if u price it out buying a low to mid level car with all the hop ups will end up killing the bank. you would have been able to buy 1.5 to 2 high end cars for that.

Buys used. Most times you get enough parts to last a year, and they come with a practice body, and maybe electronics. Last three touring cars I bought: FT TC4, RDX, Photon. All came under $200 bucks!!
