They were insanely durable cars. I beat the hell out of those cars and barely broke anything. They were awesome for helping me get quicker without worrying about a few hits.

T4 is capable of carrying more corner speed when set up right. I've heard the '14 is even better, but I just have a couple of the T4 '13 spec cars. I love them. If I had raced more this winter I would have picked up a T4'14 or two, no doubt.
Totally accurate. The T3'11 is still a good car, and more than capable of being competitive at a club level. However, the T4 series of cars will carry more corner speed, produce more grip, and all the while still using the same consumable parts as pretty much every Xray TC since 2006 save for a couple minor mold changes.

Just a silly question; why switch to XRAY when you have all of those Tamiya spares lying around? Why not a used 417/418 variant? It would cost the same as T3/T4 and you could reuse your spares...
