I'd probably go for the TT-01 or the HPI, I'm not sure what HPI car that is.

Check out my Nissan Skyline GT-R tt-01 build in this same section. It'll show you a lot of where the TT-01 can go. I suggest going with a TT-01, but what's your budget. If you have $1000, I can help you build a tt-01 setup from scratch that will be hard for anyone to beat. I could also build and paint it for you, but with a small build/paint fee.

I would go with the HPI. I have one of the original RS4s and it still runs and I have only had to replace the body mounts! after about 5 years of use. Doubt the TT-01 has that good manufacturing.

I would have slapped you hard if you went with that E10...
There not exactly the best chassis on the planet (Read: I had one and it broke too often so I binned it)

the 4-tec uses 200mm shells and you will need to make your own body pole holes and aerial hole. to make it fit the 4-tec

The Shell would be acceptable at $20 any higher and you could have got one at a Hobby store for the same price...
