go to the track and see whats running up front also get a set of rules what works here might not work there and might not fit the rules so it's hard to say just what is the best car let us know the rules and type of track and maybe we can help you out more

I agree with racer17j go to the track and see whats running up front. Myself I like the buick regals and the 2 door buick centurys, malibus, and monte carlos remember those are the 70 models... I've ran the monte carlo and the buick centruy but everytime i build a car and do really great in it i always end up with someone bringing me $2000. I cant keep myself a car cause it seems like everyone wants to buy em..lol... but i just recentyl built a 82 buick regal but had to cut the cage down they seem like they'd be a good car. i also like mailbu's they are great on the tracks down here in Ky

I've found that bigger cars with a long wheel base have more control for beginners but weigh more. Shorter, lighter cars are quicker but might be harder to learn for as beginner.But that will also depend on your track too. Goto the track and check out everyone else, and ask questions. I build chassis in my shop so if you need any help email me.

generally coil spring type cars are a little easier to drive than leaf spring cars i may have just opened up a can of worms i've never drove a leaf spring type car but my friend has and he has almost 20 years of experience driving factory type cars and that's what he said.
