Go with the one that you feel most comfortable with, the one that your local hobby store supports (if this applies), and the one you can get the most support at your local track from fellow racers (what the majority of the top racers at your track is running). If parts for the car are hard to come by and you don't have an eternity to wait for mail order, that is not the car for you.

I know its hard to decide since they are all at the top of the hill. But the guidelines above should give you more ideas too..Or just get what its most attractive to you and have fun.

Thanks Motorman. The reason I said what I said is I have owned and races almost every brand of touring car except Kyosho and Yokomo. I settled on Mugen because it best suited my driving ability at the time and parts support was the best out of all the nitro cars in my area behind HPI. I have had Serpent, Associated, Trinity, Team Magic, Tamiya, and HPI (some I still do have) and Mugen was the best choice for me.

All the competition-level touring cars have the good and bad points. However, if the hobby store support and local racer support for particulars brands is not strong in your area, then the best bet is to shy away from that car. It will be more trouble than it is worth in the long run (Trinity Reflex and Yokomo come to mind here).
