Dont count out a XXX-s on rubber tires anywhere. Saw one foams this weekend and it could still keep up with the newer cars. I wouldn't go that route unless you had one or were getting one cheap though.

At the local and club level the XXX-S can still hang with the new cars, especially in hands of a good driver.

Yes, sometimes you don't need high end cars to stack up against other high end cars. It really depends on your skills.

If Teemu Leino hadn't clipped a curb and rolled his Mi2 EC while leading one of the later heats he would have won the Carpet Wars race this last weekend so don't count out Schumacher.

RDX...........for me this has been the best TC I have owned to date. I have never had such a well handling car. It was fast from day one, it has been easy to knock off some factory sponsored drivers ( stock & 19 class ) with this car. I convinced the RDX would improve any drivers racing ability.
