By far the RDX. Right out of the box the car is GOOD (on carpet and asphalt). Competitivly priced, no need for lots of aftermarket hop-ups.

There have been dozens of threads like, "Which car should I buy, which is better than this, car #1 versus car #2" Just search the pages and read the discussions that have happened more times then they ever should have.

But you said you were lazy so here is my answer. Get what your track or LHS supports. Like here our track supports losi and associated parts mainly, along with some tamiya and schumacher. I heard we are even going to start stocking corrally parts. If you dont want to buy a locally supported car, then sotck up on spares. That what I do because I run a yokomo SD. And for best car...I have seen tc4's tc3's bmi tc4/3's, schumacher missions, bmi schumachers, losi xxx-s and jrx-s's, yokomo sd and bd's, corally rdx's, xray fk05 and 04's, and tamiya evo3's evo4's, and 415's win. So just pic a car. THey are all pretty well capable.

Being lazy wont really get you anywhere.

what are the racers in your area running? also your lhs have kits?..

top kits are Losi jrxs, Xray fk05, RDX, Yok BD. Tamiya 415, and AE tc4..

many great choices.. its just you need to make sure your lhs supoprts the car.. I suggest you go to either the tracjks you run or lhs.. thats the bast place.. otherwaise any of the above kits are better than 90% of the drivers who dirve them.. you won't go wrong with any one of them

Short you lazy MF! Just buy em' all and give me the ones you don't want!

I'm thinking of the xray, but it's a little steep. I want to upgrade but keep a belt too.

Josh, your asking a question that cannot be answered because there is no "best" touring car. If there was, don't you think everyone would be driving it?

The reason for the hostility is because this question is asked several times a week. There are several great cars out there with proven track records of winning, so the only answers you will get our people's personal preference. I suggest researching the top cars and then deciding for yourself which one will fit your style best.
