Like shimming the rear arms, to make the car "shorter" to have a car that's qiucker in 13,5 stock....

Try the car, then talk about it

The reason that I didnt buy the yokomo it that you have to have a tonn of options for the car and that about rear arms that comes in 3 +diffent lenghts.....

I would hate to make a $550 mistake. Once again they are not giving test drives.

I see a $399 associated with a 9.893 laptime vs a $550 Xray T4 with a 10.077 laptime running 13.5 superstock.....Hmmmm....Very tough choices.

This guy ^

You can spend $520 on a T4 and be in the F-main or the A-main

You can spend $399 on a TC6 and be in the F-main or the A-main

You can spend $80 on a TC3 and be in the F-main or the A-main

Based on your logic I would recommend you buy a Tc3.

Guys, please reserve your opinions about the car until you have driven it. All this talk about performance based on race results is useless. Usually the driver plays a bigger part than the car. For those who have doubts about the t4 performance, go buy something else and post in their respective threads but don come here and trash talk about something you don't know about yet. I understand that cars have big price differences but that is due to cost of manufacturing and materials. So if you feel that you need an"cheaper" car, than Xray may not be for you.

Believe me between Xray and Rc America they spend a lot of money on drivers too. I'll say more than Team Associated or Yokomo for sure.

It is not thrash talk when is a fact. By the way I own more Xray cars than any other brand. And have pre-order a T4. I'm just dissapointed on the results of Vegas that's all.

Like I said before, basing the cars performance on big race results is useless. The driver will play a larger role than the car. It's how much throttle, finesse, and smoothness, and most of all experience. I doubt any normal club racer could duplicate the same results with the best equipment available.

So you think Paul Lemieux is not that kind of driver? That guy can drive the wheels out of a car. So if that what he got out of it , that's what it can give. Period.
