Default Best overall tourning car

This is probably been asked millions of times but what is the best overall car for carpet and asphalt?

Lets see...PROMODVETTE

Make your mind with Either the Hpi Pro 4 or the Tamiya TRF415,
and see which parts are more available in your place.
Both of these cars are killer machines so.. do some search's and check what parts and option parts that are more available in the lpace you live.

There is NO definmite best overall car. All car are at the same level (with advatages/disadnatages compared to others). For me it comes to what YOU like more and for what kit you can get easier parts!

yep, i agree that cars caNNOT BE JUDGED by a single category. there are faster cars, there are stronger cars, there are cars with better parts support, there are handsome kits and there are not so handsome kits but the work well. i recommended the tamiyas becoz they are made well. the materials are first class and in my experience, the parts are easy to come by and are cheap compared to others. go with your heart when buying a car.

If there was a singular best car everyone would be running it.

As has been said, its down to personal choice. Any one of the top end cars has the potential to win you a race, you just need to drive it to the finish well.

Personally I use a TC4 and am very happy with it.

Xtreme did a shootout and picked the Xray T1FK...

If you're running both carpet and asphalt what's more important are your skills as a tuner since you'll be needing to totally change your setup to go from one to the other.

As said above, you have to look at many things. To me one of the most important was parts support. My local track has lots of parts for Associated and X-ray, but has nothing for Tamiya, Yokomo, or Losi. So you have two choices, buy something that has local parts support, or take your own supply of parts with you all the time.

The best car is one with:

* Good local part support
* A popular car locally, so you can get help from fellow racers
* A car that you keep for a long period, thus learning it inside out. Skills is more important than a certain chassis. So dont switch cars too often.
