I Would agree that many of the belt drive cars are essentially the same. Many of the cars have pros and cons. The Yokomo DB is the best quality car interms of machining and as such represents (personal opinion) the best value for money. Fantastic bulk heads!
Cyclone is expensive for what it is, but has the best suspension package and probably is the fastest car around each track with little setup variation.
My ranking of cars (for what its worth)
2) Yokomo BD #1 for quality
=) 415MS (x)
5) Mi2 (requires hopups and loads of spares)
6) JRXS (not for low grip tracks)
7) xray (runs hot and cold - requires too much chassis set variations)
many will argue with this,which shows how close each car actually is.
