Need more info. What type of surface do you race on? Stock or mod? Rubber tires or foams? etc.... Are you new to touring cars?

I've seen a fast RDX at just about every track I go to. Can't say the same for the Pro4 or FKO5.

i have 3 of the 4 cars on the shelf. all are good i like the new balance of the fk05. but i find the hara pro 4 runs better on asphalt for me, all depend on what type of racing you are doing and what you feel comfortable racing and as previous mentioned the two most important things parts and setups.

I would go with the jrxs because it is new and they will start make all the new upgrades for the car.

I had the JRS-X briefly but it wasn't for me. The batteries were very difficult to get to and I direct solder all my packs, plus loading & unloading the batteries from underneath the chasis was a pain.

RDX has been on fire, they have had great performances both at Snowbirds and Reedy along with the XRay T1FK05. If you plan on running asphalt you should take a good look at the Pro 4.

I second that.
Only addition to the list is
personal preference. ie for some reason I don't like the looks of the jxrs so itsn't an option for me

i would also reccomend a yokomo SD...easy to work with. The yokomo BD is niiice too, but i would rather go for an SD for stock. The fk05 i just got and have not run it yet so i still have to wait ans see about that. My pro4 was dialed for carpet with the BMI chassis.

Get the car that has the most support for you (parts, drivers)

Well then guy's i think i am going to go for the RDX because parts are easier to get to and i like the lay out more than the Losi car, i like the fact that the batteries have to go in the centre just looks real hard to put it in and out and some one said it was. Thanks alot guys for your help
