Would it be tough to gain good traction with this car on parking lot setting ?I know it will do well at the track.

FW-05R and NTC3 work better for parking lots as shaft drive is less prone to debris damaging the drivetrain. Between the 2, FW-05R is tougher and less likely to break in a crash.

Default what your LHS have?

ask your LHS... what kind of car he has good support.

all those 3 cars listed by u are good... not GOOD... but GREAT cars...

you dont want to buy a car that is very hard to get PARTS and you have to wait 2-4 weeks just bacuase you dont have the DOGBONE!!!!

either way.... you will win in RACES if you get used to the car you love.

just sharing info:

SHORT TIGHT TRACK... go for SHAFT driven car.
LONG BIG TRACK.... go for BELT driven car.
