Default TRF 415 or Yokomo CGM

Your input, what do you like better, pro/con between the two?

you're talking apples and oranges...

one is shaft-drive (CGM) and the other is belt (415)...Both are top of the line race-bred machines...

Bottom-line PARTS SUPPORT!!! If your track supports Tamiya, then go with the Tamiya -can't argue with the IFMAR World Champ...If your track still sees tamiya as a "Blackfoot and Grasshopper" company, go with the yokomo

They are both good cars - some argue that shaft-drive is better for stock racing than belts - some don't believe that (I'm personnally one of them)

Thumbs up I have both cars

both cars are good, belts are more forgiving on impacts, Too much work has to go in to make run very well, i.e. shims and the cgm is about 1550 graqms with all the light weight hop-up the 415 is about 1400 gram RTR

You know what...................... just go for the 415
