i think you should study harder, you listed 4 cars not 3. just having fun sorry for that.. of the four you listed either of the yoks or 415 are good cars, i've never heard of the other one, but that doesn't mean it isn't a good car. also, there is no right or wrong answer to that question (the question) which is better.

All of them are overall better, but a bit old...

Yokomo, the latest model is BD and LCG, both of them are top model, sure good performance.

MY02, yap, it's good, but be consider the parts, I don't know the supply at your lhs, but it's not a big manufacturer.

Tamiya 415/415MS, champion car, easy to buy parts, one of the best select.

Why don't you consider XRAY FK05? It's very good in performance, durable and easy to setup.

Racer034, what are you looking to spend? I've got an HPI Pro3 as-new(2 runs on carpet) with MANY hop-ups/extra parts in bags... Let me know if you're interested...

The MY02 uses many of the same parts as the original 415 and is more or less the design prototpye Tech racing sent to Tamiya. Think of the M version as a 415 made from lesser materials at a lower price.

Unless the tech car is signifigatly cheaper than the used 415 you are looking at I would sugest the tamiya car between the choices listed.

On the used market you may also want to look for an X-Ray FK04, Yokomo BD, or Losi JRX-S. All the cars I mentioned can be found used for very reasonable prices.

Get a used losi, xray, or tc3......you will find its easier to get help with setup and its much much easier to find parts....

Another 'which is the best touring car post'...

Basically,all top cars are good...! All can be tuned to suit different running suituations.

I drive the 415MS,why?? Not cause its a IFMAR champion,but more cause parts is easily found.Almost most hobby shop I go has Tamiya...

The rest that you mention are all good.But are parts readily available??? Not good having 'The Best Car' and break a part during a crash and your LHS does not carry parts for it.
