I picked up a serpent 733 200mm tc for the 2011 season. Very impressive, modest price (as in cheaper than the xray).

well the best thing you can do is check and see what everyone else has at the track you will be racing , and if there is parts available at track or your local hobby shop , and make your decision from there . because you can get setup help from other drivers and you will have parts there

There are a few good companies out there. There is no ONE great car. Here are a few to look into. Plus you need to pick which class you want to run in.
Serpent
Capricorn
Mugen
Xray

On technical tracks , Capricorn LAb is superior to Xray(also shepard Velox). Now wait for MTX5.

You still haven't said which class of a car your looking to get into? Sedan or 1/8?

For many I guess it's all about what may do a quicker lap, though I personally don't think you will find much in that with any of the top brands, after a year or so of messing around with nitro, for me I took a step back and thought what is going to be the best to work on, and what features do I want...

I did that with my electric, bought what I thought would be the best to work on, and as a result have never regretted what I bought, now with the nitro I'm doing the same, you make a list of what you want to see in what you own, and look for that, chances are it may make you happier with what you buy...

Really you spend more time working on these things than driving them, if you hate working on what you buy, it's going to reflect how you feel about it overall, this also goes for perceived value, endless upgrades etc as well, do your research and 'be' happy with whatever you buy in 'all' aspects...

Other than that, 'what' you buy is largely irrelevant, seriously...
