Default research maniac

Before buying any of the RC cars that I own or have owned I always do extreme research - I pride myself on taking the time to find out about all the prospective cars known strengths and weaknesses.

I don't really worry about local parts support, just stock up on the essentials and these days have spare ready to go back-up cars on the day [finding that I travel so much and invest the time to get to the track - I may as well come prepared].

It would be great to have just ever had 1x brand [brand pride] but that seems pretty hard to do for a long period across multiple classes.

TRF419
Xray XB4 2015
Kyosho RB6
Serpent 811be 2.1
Tekno sct410
Street Jam SJF01

I am only a midfield driver but love the technical side of RC cars and I reckon each car above are great modern, well developed, refined and balanced packages [perhaps a stretch for the street jam, but anyway its only F1].

Brett.

Robert! Not forsaking the Schumacher are you?

Next step is to get you back having another go at 13.5. You were doing okay at the start of the year you know?

Thanks Keith.

I am and am not thinking of changing. Just looking for something new.

Yes I might jump back to 13.5 later this year - you never know!

I started with a Tamiya way back when so tend to gravitate back to them when there is a choice to be made. I've tried a few other major brands - Associated, Schumacher, HPI (the Pro 4 is STILL the best car I've ever driven) but that Tamiya blue just draws me back.

These days as I race less, my driving performance declines, and I seem to have less disposable cash to splash around on RC, Tamiya might seem an odd choice but the heart wants what the heart wants

Yokomo b-max 4iii
Heard from some people that the xb4 had plastic gear diffs so avoided that
Other than that, cheap parts and local part support.
It being Japanese not always having to go to amain
