Default what car should i choose?

hi, i have an xray fk and i am selling it to get some thing else. there are so many great cars on the market right now and i was wondering what some opinions are. i am looking at the FK05, JR-XS, corally, tamiya, schumacher, mr4tc-BD, pro 4...

lmk what you guys think for a indoor carpet or asphalt track.

and im not worried about release date because im spending the summer in offroad.

thanks
marshalv.

jeez for carpet id say keep your FK or go with the FK05. If you want something other than that, id try the JRXS, if you can afford it, or find it: Corally. the others seem to be proven asphalt racers, rather than indoors. althought the new Yokomo has yet to be established

TBH the FK is one of the best cars out, just change the setup to preffer asphalt and conversely for carpet, better than going out and spending $300 on another car

TRF 415 should work quite good on both carpet and asphalt if you buy LW suspension for asphalt

Post pro4

An hpipro4 is the best for rubber and the xrayt1 is a good car for foam.

Get any good touring car that has good parts support in your area. You could have the most uber machine ever, but if you can't buy the $4.00 hinge pin, it will be the fastest paperweight you've ever had.

damn thats pretty cool. hopefully its air conditioned in the summer though
I guess that makes finding power a non-issue.

Id prob just keep it asphalt all year round
