get a car that is easy for you to find parts... also consider the xray nt1, mugen mtx4 and the team magic g4+evo

IMO

All the cars mentioned above are good cars.
Buy the one that ..

1. Has the best parts support in your area. (In my experence Serpent and Xray parts are expensive whereas Mugen and TM are easy to get and inexpensive)
2. Is most popular at the track you visit most. (Although it is tempting to be different I know)

+ 1 on the what was said above
I had all of the cars above with the minor exception of the tm car, i would say if your a newbie and your now starting out get the kyosho. That car`s a tank!!!!!! it simply doesn`t break, well it does break, but in my experiences with it, it takes a little bit more punishment than the other cars.

If supply of parts are not problem for you, I would get this car ( in this order ) :

1. xray nt1 2009 edition
2. kyosho v1 rrr or mugen seiki mtx4-r.

We run touring cars out at Floyd and any of the top 4 cars would be fine the local shop close to the track carries xray parts and mugen parts and if I'm not mistaken kyosho too. But you can always order parts online for any car.
