3 - Capricorn CO-1/CO-2 -> extremely fast and light car but durability is lacking and parts are not cheap
4 - Serpent 747 -> a good overall car but only seems like the factory guys can make the car fast and local guys starting out struggle longer
5 - Shepard V10/V11 -> another good car with easily accessible parts but the durability is lacking a bit and performance is not quite there
6 - KM HK1 -> The world champs car (Meen V)!!! it is a durable car but support is AWFUL, better know how to setup a car by yourself real well and wait weeks for parts, b/c there is no local support really in the U.S. for KM
7 - Mugen MTX5 -> To many bugs, but when the car is on, its fast
8 - Kyosho Anything in on-road

Just my 2 cents....Talk to the local guys and see what they are running, that is probably the best advice to start out with.

Durability is not an issue on the V10 I assure you! it's as strong as anything out there, the plastics are Xray quality and the chassis is very strong! Performance wise I've not driven it but when Adam Catchpole was driving the Shepherd V10 here in the UK he was extremely competitive with it also in the B Euros he qualified 3rd over all and a Shepherd won it.

The 747 chassis is fast as buggery stock setup too, I took one stock setup out of the box and went faster in the damp with it than I'd ever gone with my NT1 in the best of conditions.

Also the 747 qualified for the semis in the worlds by Mark Green and only got knocked out due to a crash with Dario Balestri not a performance issue it should have been in the final. It also won the UK national championship on it's first year and took second place too.

All the modern 200mm cars are extremely adjustable and as along as it's not some cheap chinese knock off it's probably going to be reasonably durable too. If you gave any of the top worlds drivers enough testing time with any of the chassis out there they'd be just as fast with any of these chassis'

Stick to my original statement, check which is best parts support locally and which is easiest for you to run because they're all quick in the right hands..
