Been driving a 415 for the past few years... only car I would consider changing too is the new Xray... Some nice ideas on it.

Default dream car

I have a tbo2 for tamiya TCS racing, retired an O.G. tc3 about 8 or 9 years old. only needs new bearings. I am waiting for the TRF tao5 I think it would be a good all around racer, not only for tcs racing but club etc... the tub chassis should be sturdier than the 415's plate chassis.

I have yet to loose a tub chassis car to a full on 50+mph take out from a 1/8 scale nitro car. I've lost a couple of carbon weave plate chassis to full impact hits. I hate open practice!!! Ive seen a pitted tc3 take a full hit from a nitro. chassis survived. lost a few other appendages. lol. I know own a nitro car Heh! heh!
no, I drive good.
later

I'd try out the RDX or the TC4. Both cars look nice. I found the quality of the XRay cars to be lower than most other brands. Whereas the RDX and TC4, from what I have seen of them, they look nice and go like the clappers.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion....I just happen to not agree with yours

What makes you say the quality of the xray is low?

Oh this is for people who don't switch cars often....well hell, eliminates me..


But I'll pretend for a second that I don't change cars every season.


If I wasn't driving my TA05 right now, I would run the MI2 EC, just because I'm a big fan of Schumacher's TC's.

I would love to get a new Xray T2 or a RDX....But no Corally anything where I live. Some xray, I would love either.

I've been driving a Schumacher since '96 and I wouldn't change a thing. They are all good cars. Just what someone feels comfortable with. All of them have good and bad things about them. The Cyclone seems nice and the Losi I guess, but have never driven anything else and don't plan on it. I do well with what I got.

Im running an RDX now at our local races but would switch anytime to a LOSI JRXS-R (If it comes out in TWO WEEKS! ). Definitely a Losi, if I wasn't with Corally now.

My son and I both have Xray T1FK05's. We like them alot. Had TC4s but they didnt hold up to the speed of foam.
If I could drive another car, it would be my sons. That has to be the reason he is so much faster than me. It couldnt be my driving.LOL
