Default Help me Choose

Well I'm going to give a go at electric grip racing. Right now I have a TT-01 that I drift with, but I know it won't stand a chance against other chassis. I have narrowed my search to these chassis:

Tamiya Evolution IV MS
AE TC4 Factory
HPI Pro 4 Hara

Help me decide on one of these 3 chassis.

They are alll very capable cars

pro4 is getting a bit old imo
ft tc4 is the real bargain at the moment
evo4 as a tamiya will have great part support

The Pro4 is still a very awesome car. It's got the smoothest drivetrain I have ever seen. Plus you can use a lot of the Pro4 parts on the Cyclone if you decide to upgrade later on. I liked the Pro4 better than the TC4. Both have parts available everywhere. The Evo4 is also nice but parts are more expensive.
You're pretty much looking at identical cars from 3 different manufacturers. Whichever you chose will be nice. The Pro4 still carries the lowest price @ under $300.

The Hara is over 300, and might actually be the most expensive of the three. I've owned Pro4's and they have the best drivetrains out of any car on the market. Anyone can build up a kit and get an easy 20-30 seconds of free-spin. Diffs are also super smooth and long lasting between rebuilds. Parts are extremely durable, and cheap if you do break something.

Don't confuse the guy. He's already narrowed it down to 3 chassis. This isn't going to help him.
