Also they run Serpent 1/8 scale foams and many people do race them as well as many more bash with them. Price around $400.

On the track for racing, I've heard great things and I would agree

I don't own a Power Racing car, but I have worked on a few. They are really fast and I have been to many races where they were dragging against Schumachers and winning. The Schumacher is the king of the street drags; next is the CEN then the 4 Tec. All based on 1/10 chassis. The Power Racing is an 1/8 scale.

I'm just curious about what scale is RaV3n asking about?

I think best and fastest are two separate categories. To me, best means most appropriate for the track. For best I would say MTX4R, NT1, etc. But really find what the guys at your track are running and emulate that so that parts support, help, etc would be easiest on you.

Fastest is more of a drag racing thing, so Traxxas or Shumacher may be a better choice. Although the Power Racing and Inferno GT2's are good cars as well.

Just my two cents.
