To win races you have to be a leader, not a follower. Make you own decision. Choose your own car. Don't let others decide for you.
Oh, and don't worry about what is the right car for you. Good driver adapts his driving to the car. I'm sure Masami could get radio controlled beerbarrel into A-main.

Cars that are fast:

Corally RDX
Tamiya 415
Schumacher Mi2
Yokomo BD
Yokomo LCG
Yokomo SDW
Xray FK05
Xray FK04
HPI Pro 4
Losi JRXS
AE TC4
Kawanda
Alex Stinger
HB Cyclone
possibly more. I believe all of those cars have won major races and can win races. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Sorry that this post doesn't answer your question. Basically, all of those cars are capable. None are perfect, they all have flaws, and they all can suck or be great.

If you are looking for a new car I would wait for an announcement being made in the first few days of September. I guarantee it will be worth the wait

yup ....but today was the first time running my fk05 and i found it very easy to driver compared to the pro4... the only sacrifices from moving from a pro4 to the fk05 was the acceleration and free drivetrain, but i think it was worth giving up since the fk05 in my opinion did handle alot easier, and did not tweak at high impact crashes.

I have never had my Pro4 chassis tweak in a crash. If you do the mods that were addressed in the Hara kit (if you have a regular version), you are set. I think the issues the kit first had really scarred the car.

FK05 is easier cause it's slower!!! Remember, if you can't get the power to the ground, then you can't brake traction.

just playin, to all the xray fanaticos out there.
