Well, given all the feedback. I have purchased an XI DH. I will run it this Saturday and let you know my initial thoughts. I'm a pretty crap driver, so I will be testing it's durability.
I really appreciate all the feedback and opinions. I think these days most of the cars are fairly competitive for the club racer. Given my skill level I'm sure a zero s would have been quite sufficient, buy I would like the room to grow. So I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the XI. Considering I purchased it with out ever seeing one in person, I'm really keen.
Thank you all again
Do it right the first time!
I have toooo many RC toys to list here! Just ask the Boss!
