Default Best all around 1/5 scale on-road gas car ???

I know some of you race 1/5 scale and I want to do some research before spending the money. I live in Crofton, MD and I have the 301 raceway track near by and I want to start looking into the 1/5 scale cars. What brands and models do you guys recommend (if you can let me know about reliability, parts availability, price, etc)?
Thanks
LRR

call molzer mower racing and explain to them what it is you are looking for and they will steer you in the right direction. they are great and will point you in the right direction. i bought an evo 4 from them a while ago and it was pretty cool, just had nowhere large enough to run the thing....

Thanks guys, I just wanted to get some info as to what size engine, car type, etc, are allowed for racing at 301 raceway track.
For example: I have been looking at the FG competition EV0 04 and I noticed that there have 3 different chassis. They have a short, medium and long. If a buy the short chassis, will that separate me to a different class?? I guess I am really looking for the rules for 1/5 scale racing in USA, MD. Thanks
