I think I am going with the Tamiya TA05 IFS-R Kit. Does that sound about right?
To the best of my knowledge, the only thing the IFS does for you is give the ability to run super low front-end Tamiya bodies. Can't speak for other people and tracks, but this didn't seem to matter one lick (for me). The vast majority of rubber tire racers (carpet) I've seen run the Mazda 6 body by Protoform...hardly a super low front-end like the NSX. Also, most other high end cars have suspension like the TA05, not the IFS. I'd say the regular TA05 or TA05-R (if you can find one) would give better experience towards that inevitable upgrade to a high end car.
