Default What would you do?

Just got into RC cars (4 months ago) after 21 years of airplanes and I am having a blast. Want to concentrate on on-road for now as that is where my interests lie for now (sold my slash 4x4 ultimate that I loved to totally do on road.) I have an HPI sprint 2 flux that I could convert over to VTA but I am in a position to get 2 chassis from the same manufacture for VTA & Touring class money no problem....I am leaning towards 2 xrays just due to the fact that they are great cars and setups would be similar....basically I am very impressed by there support manuals describing tuning effects for there brand, it is top notch advice made simple. What would you do in my position?

Without getting into a brand debate or anything - going with 2 of the same car for different classes makes it easy for spares, setups and just being familiar with the car.

Personally if you are going to race 2 classes then I think 2 of the same car is the way to go.

I would personally go for Xray they are extremely strong and are one of the best manufacturers of rc cars. But hey, don't limit yourself to xray, there might be something else you like more or another brand that is extremely popular at your track. It pays to get what everyone else uses so you have a wide range of advice and help if anything goes wrong !!

+1 fro me also. I run 2 classes of on road and drift as well, all 3 chassis are the same. Common parts to share between them all certainly makes things cheeper.
