I say go with the car that has the best parts support in your area. Any touring car can be a winner, it usually depends on setup and the driver more then anything. My personal preference is the X-Ray FK05 that thing is dialed right out of the box.

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, I did. Went straight for the Brok.,uh hem, I mean Yokomo and haven't looked back. For some reason I wanted something that not alot of people had. If not, the TC3 would've been in my stable. BARF! -JB

Default Touring Car

Go to the local track, see what they're running, especially the fast guys. Then got to the closest hobby shop, see what they stock, usually parts for what is being ran in the area. Then buy whatever you like. It's easier to run fast with the same or similar setup as someone else, parts are easy to obtain, etc. But with the net, you can support just about any manufacturer with a little planning. Nothing is more frustrating than breaking a 2 cent part and having your day end early because you can't replace it!

Xray didn't get enough test time with spools before the worlds. If they had, then they would be up there in the A-Main.
