Hi people

What 1/8th car is currently the best on the market and for what reason, price, build quality, design, parts back-up etc? What made you choose the chassis you drive?

Truthfully there is no best they are all fast enough to win in the hands of the right driver. I like the m3 evo because it has great parts quality and it handles great out of the box. The only problem is there isn't alot of support for it anymore because kyosho doesn't care about onroad here in the USA. However the kyosho 1/8 car has won the last x4 world championships. That speaks for it's self the platform is proven!!!!!!!!

Most of the times the winning Kyosho car was a Hybride car with parts from other brands. The winning car from the Pre Worlds was just an original car with probbebly only some 3rd party light weight options. (I know the wheelshafts were)

Finally for most drivers it is wise to choose what your local track or shop supports, the best car is indeed only the best car in the hands of the best driver running the best tires, engine etc. and having the best pitman.

What a thread?? Nobody gave good answer. Most people make advertising for their brand. We have some premium brand and it dosenīt matter what you drive. I think the driver ist 70 % of the success. 2. is the support and this depend on where you drive
