I'm asking because i want to know, it IS a valid question because i believe at some point you will see 1 car dominate. Maybe not for too long, but i'm sure it will happen/already has. And honestly I just wanted to talk about the top kits ATM. I'm not buying anything, I run a T1 sir ;].

Now for the real thing: what makes the best car to win? The driver: if you put a high end rc touring car in the hands of a rookiedriver it isn't the best car then. Masami is still the best driver in the field with most worldtitles and you know why? It isn;t the BD5 he is driving, it takes skills and lots of practising!

I don't think you understand: what car do you want for yourself, the one you like of the ones from the people who speak for themself
I like the Yokomo cars myself but you don't have to like MY choice!

On the post it states I'm not looking for a car.
I'm asking drivers what their thoughts on the top touring cars at the moment are, and what they believe are the top touring cars to begin with.

In Germany the X-Ray T3'11 is the most popular car, directly followed by Tamiya 417 and HB TCX. In our most popular series the LRP-HPI-Challenge these three cars always make the top five. The X-Ray seems to be the one with the widest setup range making the german drivers happy. The HB TCX seems to be very easy to setup also. With the Tamiya 417/416 I see many drivers search for a setup very long or the car has to be forced around the track. The Yokomo drivers are rare but can be found everywhere in the lists after the race.
I for myself own and drive a TC6 and love the car. I haven't won a race with it, but was always in the top six since I have it. Its setup window is also very wide.

In conclusion the german list in my eyes would look like that:
1. X-Ray
2. HB
3. Tamiya
4. Yokomo
5. 3racing
6. TOP
7. Kyosho
8. Team Associated
9. Schumacher

TOP PHOTON!!!! I like the top photon, easy build, easy to work on, and easy to drive. Parts support is great from top usa, i live in VA, top usa is in CA. I order and 2 days later i got my parts. Cost 5 dollars for shipping(thanks OD). i only order from top usa if my lhs don't have the parts. Plus they don't come out with a new car every year, they just upgrade on what they got. Parts are cheap also.
