Well hear is what guys that own these cars have to say about it...
The shocks are not good, and the gear diffs can be a hit or miss...
the gears can be off so much that they wobble...ect...
The button head screws are horrible...and the list goes on...
I can get a T6 for 150$ less... but I wouldn't purchase it because all
I see on the forums are how they all have to mod it all up so it is reliable.
You don't have to do ANYthing on this car....That speaks volume.. and it is reliable and precise, and everything works well...out of the box...
In the end, the manufactures try to get a product that people want and need .....I think X-ray does it best.... and serpent close behind..\
IN the 1/10 electric sedan..... I can't say about other vehicles...
as it differs...
years ago I would not even consider paying more than I did for my 1/8 scale off road buggy.....when it came to a 1/10 sedan/
and I still have a hard time doing it..
The flat heads are junk on the TC6, button heads are fine. As far as mods go, maybe $60 in mine and the only part I've broken was a c-hub. That said I have an Xray on order.
