My Mi5 right out of the box was amazing on asphalt. Xray, Associated, Serpent, Tamiya and VBC sedans are also good choices in top-end chassis. Parts availability would likely be the deciding factor for me.

Have a guy sending me pictures of an T3 '11, If I can get a screaming deal used I will entertain it, but I almost always buy new.

Well, I know that the Solaris SPEC tire is used for Fseara, so a lot of guys will be running them in general. I'm hoping to be there on the 8th. I run VTA mostly... but yeah I would give 'em a call, I think Solaris is pretty much the tire.

It's always hard to trust used stuff, but Xray is the tank of TC's. I picked up a 2012 with a good bit of spares, ect for $200 if that helps as a reference point. I'd probably try to pay no more that 140-150 for a 2011.

There is a newer version of it, but yeah, the M6 or LTCR are basically the shells that are ran.

X-rays are good cars, loads of good cars recommended above. I would avoid associated though, very unpopular here due to them breaking if someone sneezes nearby. They are quick when they work though.
