If there was "one best" touring car then there would only be one on the market cause everyone would have that. buy one you can get parts for or you feel more comfortable getting.

Yes... I totally agree. Also... try to buy something that your fellow racers already have at least for starters, so that you can bounce ideas off eachother and learn from eachother down at the track. That helps a LOT!!

The Mission seems to be a pretty sturdy car and is relatively easy to setup from what I understand. I'm a Tamiya boy and I've been very happy with every Tamiya I've ever bought, except for the Evo II. God... what a TANK!!!!

buy an X-Ray and you buy quality and you don'y need to buy parts as they don't break like all the others

What's the use in buying an XRay kit if there isn't much support for them at his local track?? If he's a newbie to this form of racing... then I don't see that as being a benefit. Sure... without doubt XRay is quality... but so are many other cars out there. Tamiya... XRay are probably the two best in terms of their machining quality, etc. But... XRay weren't exactly UBER at the Worlds.


Honestly.... you will see racing out there with MANY different types of cars and it wouldn't be rare for there to be say 6 different manufacturers in the top 6 of a field!!

Tamiya (mainly the modern cars are good), XRay, Corally (only RDX tho, Assassin sucked!), HPI, Team Associated and Schumacher are really the ones out there that I see regularly at the top of timesheets, depending on where the racing is at, what type of racing is going on, etc, etc. Either way... like Matt Howard said... there ain't no UBER wondercar. If people are running Schumacher's at your club then that's what I'd be getting. I'd be running what your friends.... or what most club members are using at the track you race at are using. Its the best way for a newbie to start out in racing.

Totally depends on class. I wouldn't buy too great a speedy if I were doing 540 racing but if I was racing Modified or something (which I don't recommend a newbie to do) I'd be getting the BEST of the BEST stuff.

You'll find that whatever class you choose to run will denote what motors you will be racing with whether it be 540 silver can racing, Stock Motor Racing, 19T racing or Modified racing.

So.... are you saying that when you first started racing.... you ran a car that noone at the track used??

Oh okay.... good for you. It just proves that it can be done... but I don't think that its advisable for the reasons I outlined earlier.
