Default Best TC out of the box?

Hey guys- new to this forum, not to RC. What's is the best out of the box touring car for racing on an outdoor prepped track? I'd rather stick with the major brands, AE, TL, etc... I'm looking for a car to run stock and 19-turn, and something that works pretty well out of the box, without throwing a bunch of money at it. I'm not even opposed to running an "outdated" car, like the XXX-S, as long as it works.

Thanks in advance.

xxx-s isnt outdated ... I bet you you buy a G+ and you could still be comp. and win some races. But if you want a cheap new release car go with the tc4!

If you can get one, probably used for not too much-

Xray FK04.

I got mine for $240. With spare parts, and a full spring kit, and red anodized aluminum everything. The car is NICE!

I was thinking $200-250. I just don't want to get into a car that will need a bunch of upgrades to work well.

THE PRO4!!! the tc4 is good , but doesn't come with the things your already going to buy...like sway bars. The pro4 is the best out of the box car...the out of the box setup they give you is a great setup to learn about your car, and easy to drive. Not to mention this car is cheaper than most high end carbon fiber/aluminum cars.

hope this helps

Default TC4 or XXX-S

Axel,

Everytime someone wants a reccomendation on a car, you ALWAYS say the PRO 4!!! A little biased huh? \

The Pro 4 seems like a nice car but I think he said he's willing to spend $200-250 on the car. The Pro 4 requires alot more to get it going. The TC4 RTR seems good as well as the Losi XXX-S RTR II. Both can be great to bash with or can be competitive in racing.

Good Luck.

I'd get the Pro4(don't blame me, I'm biased as well ), simply because of it's vast parts support and cheap spares (IMO). The box stock setup is great and the car is simple to setup. Great all around car!

Just so you guys know, I'm talking $200-250 for a rolling chassis. I have electronics already. I'm just an off-road guy usually...

Any higher than that I would go with the 05 xray
