What scale? I would advise you to just look at all the threads on the different cars. And check out youtube videos. With a little bit of reading, and research you will answer your own question.

For me at least, this is how I learned about the different cars that met my criteria.

I was considering the hpi sport 3 bc i was thinkin of runnin a brushed setup..
I really want a stiff chassis though...

Rigid...only thing i want to flex is the springs

I would like an aluminum chassis...i might want to check with snr racing or even strc

I am unaware of any onroad car that uses an aluminum chassis, nor can I imagine why anyone would want one? Aluminum can bend, easily if you hit something. Even the most subtle bend that you can not see will negatively effect your car. I avoid most aluminum parts w/ the exception of beefy motor mounts, chassis posts, servo mounts and the like.

I think you are looking for an on-road touring type car?
if so check these out:
http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ...01&s_maker_id=

these are all kits, they vary in price and quality. What do you plan on doing with the car? Racing against others in a club? Or parking lot fun? -if racing, then you should get the best car you can afford. If parking lot fun, then I personally feel that you don't need to spend a ton and can get great results that will provide a lot of fun for not a lot of money.

I see that you prefer a shaft driven car, -why is that?

If your open to a belt drive car then I believe there are more options. I've owned both shaft and belt, ...I realize this is purely subjective but I much prefer belt drive. I've had more problems with shaft driven and zero issues w/ belt drive.
