I don't have the kyosho sc but I do own the tq, sc10, and blitz. The Tq is ok but you will need to do some mods and upgrades asap to run it. The rear arm holders need replaced right away with the aluminum ones because they will break right away. My Tq broke 3 times before i ever got to run it for a full battery pack. I would recommend the blitz myself as it is a very durable great handling sc.

FYI. The TQ is a pro roller - comes built from the factory, add electronics and go. But it's not a regular old RTR. This is a competition chassis ready to race with aluminum upgrade parts you have to buy for other kits or buy a special team kit.

Also to note, we are having the aluminum rear arm mounts added to future production kits.

The SX10 SC finished second at this years ROAR nationals on both stock and mod. And the stock class winner was one of our drivers who was faster in testing with the TQ truck than his, but we didn't have enough kits to go around at time.

I am not saying the tq is not a good race truck but pro race spec or not my rtr blitz has been more durable and a better race truck than the tq. FYI, I am still driving the tq because of how much $$ I have in it and I am not willing to give up on it just yet.

I have an ultima SC-R and with my 17.5 I'm able to keep up with the much lower turn motors at my track. Mine is probably one of the most locked in at the track and I think the SC-R is very easy to work on compared some of the SC-10s and Slashes I've worked on.

I have only seen one or two TQ trucks, and they ran pretty well. I don't think you can go wrong either way, but parts are rare for either of the trucks your considering, so you may want to consider what parts you can get easiest.

Hey have a option to buy either I order all my stuff on-line. Im thinking the SCR would be a better truck out of the box but Ive been heariing some good things about TQ it turns super fast planted while the SCR has a super smooth drivetrain and shocks.

From my own personal experience with the TQ SX10 SC and seeing how well the kyosho's run if i had to do it again I would buy the kyosho. I have a Kyosho RB5 SP2 and love it. Very well built and smooth.

Default Opinion

Okay I can only post my opinion but because I am a dealer I have tried all the trucks.

I will say that I had the same problem with the Rear arm mounts on my TQ truck,but once I made the switch to the aluminum mounts the truck has been perfect.

The Kyosho is very good also and I would say both are heads up better then the Blitz and the SC10 FT.

In my opinion I would grab the TQ because it comes with all the goodies and I like the fact it is a Pro Roller with a great box stock setup.
