I_Got_M8 where is box on Jericho? Wheres my map.
If you set a TC4 next to an XRAY, Tamiya TRF415(evo4), JRXS, etc there will be a glaring difference in the quality of materials that the manufactures used to produce their products. It is expensive at the manufacturing level to use carbon fibre and machined al and spring steel. The other companies would not have used these expensive materials unless they thought it was necessary to building a first tier product.
The material of the car does not win the race (generally) but when you fork out hundreds of dollars it's good if you end up with a piece of quality equipment and not just plastic. Yes that is just my personal opinion.
Look at LOSI. There last generation car is the XXXS. It worked well and drove smooth. Did they just upgrade it? No they put the effort forth (engineering and materials) to produce a no holds barred top of the line product. My hat is off to them as an american company that is tryiong to give us the racer the best products. I don't own a JRXS but I know quality when I see it.
Anyway a truthful respectful discussion of the best RC cars in our hobby is healthy and fun. By the way I own many Associated cars. Please for give my buzzed comment to soviet as he referred to me as high and I wanted some soviet ..... Hey Soviet where do you race? We can settle this on the track.
Got 2 go. Have a good one.
For those of us that learned to drive at Hobby town, don't hit the other cars, everybody else looks on that as bad!!!!!!!!! Especially when you hammer the cars in front of you and they have their rearend torn off..oops, sorry I was just thinking of a race last Sat.
