Dude, are you still trying to decide on a car bro?? Well I'm glad your doing your homework here and looking in the right direction now. The 2 cars you mentioned are quite different. I don't know much about the FW-05T, but I am guessing that it is a 10th scale touring car. Where as the Inferno GT is an 1/8th scale. I can tell you that they will both be plenty fast where you can easily so 4WD burn outs on the street. The Inferno will be LOTS more durable and be able to handle any punishment. Also the Inferno takes the larger engines .21-.28 and this means they will last longer, easier to tune, be more reliable and in the long run be more fun. It becomes a huge bummer when all you want to do is run your car and you have nothing but problems. The Inferno will give you much less problems in the long run, escpecially if your new to Nitro. The only reason I would look into the FW-05T is if you plan on racing it at your local club if you have one. If you are not going to attend races at a race track, then i would opt for the Inferno. Don't let those vidios fool you. The Inferno GT has LOTS of grunt and speed because of the size engine it has. Plus with it being bigger, it is easier to see at a distance. I personally think that you get a lot more car for the money with the Inferno GT. But if you want to LEARN about touring cars to eventually race, then you might want to go with the FW. If your not going to race, and just want to have hours of fun, The Inferno is the way to go. You would probably wear out more then 3 touring cars compaired to one Inferno. The inferno is just SUPER strong and VERY tough. If your were in an accident with the Inferno GT and you broke it, then that same accident would probably destroy half of the FW. So this decision I think depends on are you going to race, also can you get parts for the cars? If your new to Nitro, I trully think that the Inferno is the way to go. Good luck bro.
