If out-of-the-box includeds used cars, get the Pro4 or the Xray FK04. Even the Xray Evo2 is a good car for asphalt. Don't get the TC4. Even with factory kit graphite parts it is over weight.

I have to agree with the Pro4. And not because I have one.
That thing out of the box is dialed. They have a ton of hop ups for it, But I remember Hara tearing up the asphalt scene with the car bone stock.
Then again, he's Hara were not
For the price and out of box performance I would go with the Pro4.

Good Luck.

If your looking for a car that's pretty much complete with spare parts and all, this guy is unloading his precious rides ( Factory Team TC3, Yokomo with rayspeed chassis, HPI pro 4. ). Here's the link.

If I was getting started into electric touring car, i'd grap one of his rides.

he's got some nice cars there... if I had the $$$ I'd grab the RS-SD and convert it with the LCG kit... but first gotta get my hands on the HB cyclone.

Cheapest best out of the box pro kit. Pro4

This is one kit that you can survive and be competitive on just whats in the box.

Any other cheaper kits are either non pro-kits or require some choice hopups (or rather must-haves) which will bring their price to the same level as the Pro4.

Thanks for the tip Roger. PM sent. Looks like the Proto Mazda 6 is the new Stratus... (for those of you who have been doing this for a few years) Is this the most neutral handling body these days?

Eh... I've had lots of off road cars. B3, T3, XX-4, XXX, XXX-T, XXX-4 and a Schumacher Cat 3000 somewhere along the way. I'm not a newb, just trying to get back into racing sedans. I've had a few of those too. (but I won't get into that)

In a previous life, I did some writing for that magazine that Mike and Derek run. (Jungle shout out for Mike V.)

Well, then since you had a XXX-4 you might like the XXXSG+. You can get them priced right and they have all the hop ups in the box except the long black belt kit.

Default Pro 4...great value!

It comes with everything you would need to race or street bash. It also looks cool. If you race carpet just get a BMI down the road.

The Xray FK05 , 1st time i raced with it today and it was amazing, easy to work on, strong (nothing broken in some big crashes ), very controlable (if you don't crash ) and you don't need a lot of money to get it running to what you want
