The HPI...well it's HPI. Good cars but typically not high end.
However look at the Losi which does handle very well with a similar layout.
As for using the smaller battery with the 414...well that will work fine for 17.5 to 25.5 motors...but when you start getting into the mild modifides you are going to have problems making run time.
That's right, I forgot about the Losi which handles very well.
And then there is another European maker Team Magic who makes E4RS:
Since the TRF414M2 is long discontinued, I probably would keep it running in 21.5 or 17.5 non-boosted to converve parts.
As for the TA06, I am not conviced that it will take mild mod motors any better because of the hidden motor design, which traps heat like FF03 or TA03. In terms of motor cooling, the TA05 series is superior but weight balancing TA06 is better.
