The two cars were out at about the same point in time, yet the TC3 will run longer and slightly faster than a TA-03 because it is a ton more efficient. To this day shaft drive cars will have a slightly higher top end when used with less powerful motors. If you have never driven another companies car, how can you say anything about the differences? Give Mabuchi540 a break here. He is just trying to not waste as much money as the rest of us have. If you don't agree, don't read his posts!!!
lol.your comparing cars of diiferent era's.
of course a TC3 is gonna be better then a ta03.
i was comparing cars of this era,PRO4,TRF415,X-ray fk etc.
y would i compare a ten year old car with an up to date one?
so you think that theres gonna be an obviouse advantage in drivetrain effeciancy bt the pro4,415 and x-ray,tc3?
of course not.
and thats the point iam making.
all this belt vs sd is bull.
is a tlo1 gonna compete against a 415?ones belt ones sd.
bt in all this transmission vs transmission topics youl only have an advantage if the suspension geometery is the same and weight ditribution is the same and there not.
so you cannot compare one to the other.
a 415 has higher cornering speed then the tlo1 so it wud be faster out of corners.
all iam saying is that its not just as black and white as some people make out,and if theres an obviouse choice every1 will run it.bt theres not thats why there are so many manufacturers and all their products are as good as there capabillitys and technology will allow.this means that each car is very close on the track.
