Default Top touring car as of right now.

what ARE THEY*
2011 will soon be over.
i guess i'm asking 3 things
-What is your favorite
-What do you think the top (insert number) kits are.
-What do you want to be driving.

I'm not asking because i'm buying anything or because I'm 12.
I just want to get others info!
I don't mean any harm i swear lol.

The top two chassis (IMO) are the Tamiya TRF 417 and the X Ray T3-11.

I drive a 417 and can't say enough good comments about it. People at my local tracks race the T3-11 and feel the same way as I do about my 417.

Personal preference and driving style set these two cars apart...try one and see what's right for you.

+1 Tamiya TRF417 and Xray T3 '11

They are both great. I find the 417 to be better at "normal" tracks, where Xray are better in extreme situations (like extreme high-grip). But they are close.

Obviously Hotbodies TCX and Tamiya and 417, is sufficient to observe the podiums of the most important international competitions, TITC, Reedy race,IIC, ecc.
Even Yokomo BD5 is a great car.

I agree the t3 and 417 are amazing,
but, the photon takes it for me.

just to put it out there, i didn't ask because i'm buying a new kit
i'm just interested lol.

The Tamiya 417 and XRAY T3'11 are what come to mind.

If you look at pure usage, it would be Xray, TC5\6, Photon.

Nothing against the 417 it is a great car, but in the Unites States not very many people use this car.

I thought it was always the car you were purchasing next or waiting for in the mail.

Default Who makes the best REAL 4door sedan?

I sell Toyotas for a living and I would never ask the question who has the best car. Why not ask whats the best ICE CREAM? Or best TV SHOW? Everyone will have a different answer,thats why there are soooo many rc cars on the market.See what people at the track you are running at have, and try to get somthing with some kind of track record that people will be able to help you with.Dont buy a car that you will be the only one, if it breaks or wont hook up you have a bad day and get discouraged.THAT BEING SAID GO OUT AND BUY A XRAY T311........By the way the best real car on the road today is TOYOTA!!!!!!!!!!!
