I have been out of the scene for two years now and was wondering if my team losi xxx-s graphite is already out dated?? It was pretty cool back then until xray started dominating. am I gonna get owned now?? thanks in advance
No they aren't the same. Some places give you a free cell phone if you use sign up for two years. A R/C cost quite a bit and you pay to use it plus I don't know people willing to give away a free R/C Car to everyone.
Older cars are still competitive, but some are bad designs that don't work well and don't last on the market. The newer cars are getting easier to work on. That is about the major differance.

Racing TC Class where allowed with what I have.
At times the older cars can be a bit more fun. The newer cars at times have so many more tuning options and can become so much more work than ever before and that at times can take the fun out of it. JMHO
I believe they are like cell phones. People don't get rid of their cell phones because they're better, but because they need to beat the Jones'. Same goes for R/C. There are touring cars that came out ten years ago that can still do pretty well at local tracks, however you don't see many people running them because everyone thinks they need the latest stuff to be competitive. I already hear people on various forums talking about how they need to get rid of their TC4 factory team cars for an Xray. Why? Not because it'll really make then any faster, but because they just won a big race and now it's hip to have one.
