Default Which car is the best

I am getting ready to start racing and figured I would ask "Which car is the best for each style of racing"? Meaning best one for handling, most durable, and i guess the fastest. Just looking for some insight before I make a purchase so I can get the one that fits my strengths and weaknesses....

Since we don't know you, how would we be able to tell what car is "...the one that fits [your] strengths and weaknesses."

Just buy one. Any one. Setup the car so it fits your strengths and weaknesses.

Mugen or Serpent, take your pick. Fastest? That depends on the engine you decide to get.

Xray is at the top of the food chain.

You really can't go wrong with it.

Any questions, feel free to ask in Xray NT1 thread.

Hey guys. Check post #6 in this thread. The guy who started this thread picked an NT1. More opinions for him are not needed.

R/C has everything for evryone. All genders. Go with what you like. Personally, I'd start with any off road kits. You cant go wrong with Associated, Losi, Kyosho, Schumacher or Tamiya. I Say this bcoz you are not limited to the type of running surfaces for other classes.

There can never be a "right" answer. Good luck on your quest choosing the best car/plane/boat/truck/tank for you
