I ran my Mi5 the first time today, and what a dream. it was very easy to controll, and there was alot of speed in it. I set my fastest laptime at our track 10.846, and my previos fastest was 11.321. So I am very impressed after just 2 hours of racing. And no crashes....
I think my BD5wxi is going on sale now :-)

This car seems to handle really well, i think i heard the most positive things about the way this car feels on the track than any other TC on tech.

Still debating mi5 or xray t4, will be 100 racing on carpet... decisions decisions

Can't go wrong with either car. I would probably choose the Xray on durability, Mi5 on grip and ease of maintenance.

I don't own any Xrays, nor do I run on carpet. But from what everything I have read, I can't say that one car will be faster on carpet then the other. Maybe there are some carpet experts that can chime in.

it doesn't matter what someone else does with either car. what matters is how does the car work for YOU!. I have seen some people try a perfectly set up car, and for some reason or another, could not drive it. It is all about individual likes. Some people likes a car that pushes a bit. others like a car that feels skatey, and is a bit loose. If you can try the different cars out, see how they feel to you, and then buy the car that feels best for you. for me, the grip that the SCHUMACHER has, and it's ability to change directions quickly make it a perfect choice. Trust me on this, you will spend a lot of money on either car, make sure its the right choice for you.

I don't have the latest Xray, but I raced Xray for a couple years, moved to the 417, and now race the Mi5.
