They are both great cars. The kyosho is more dialed out of the box, however it also has a traction rolling problem. The xray doesn't, in terms of fit&finish the nt1 is second to none. Also the vonerrr shimo does come with all of the parts the evo2wc came with. I ran the vonerrr evo2 wc last year and the car was great tons of steering and a silky smooth drivetrain. I will be running the nt1 ec this year because I wanted to try something new. I was very impressed how the nt1 ec went together the quality of the parts are the best in the industry. Even better than my mtx4r which I run 2 years ago. The nt1 ec comes with every hopup xray makes for the car, except for the lightweight alu pillow balls, carbon personal transponder mount, carbon battery tray, and the Alu brake lever which I added. In all I would say go with the nt1 ec it is the best car on the market!!!! The kyosho will be slot cheaper to run then the xray. So it comes down to what your pockets can handle. The xray nt1 ec has it all the durablity of a mugen, the butter smooth drivetrain of the kyosho and xray quality. Good luck in your choice.
