Default What would you drive if...

... you weren't in love with the car you currently own? Or for some of you that get a new car from the same manufacturer frequently, what other brand would you drive?

This thread isn't for the guys that switch cars each week, but rather those that stick with one for a while and learn to love it, despite its quirks.

If I didn't drive an RDX, I would drive a 415MSX.

Have a Pro-4, interested in the JRXS or the Cyclone. Only thing stopping me from getting one, the price. Hot Bodies and Losi are way too proud of those cars...and I don't by used racecars from E-bay.

I've driven an RDX for a year now and love it. I just picked up a T2 to try out. Looks like Xray picked up the best of all the good cars and put it together in one.

Hmm...Have a FT-TC4 and an RDX...I suppose I'd like an XRay T2 with all the options to see what the fuss is all about.

IF I had the extra time.....I'd go into 12th scale. Or on-road for that matter, I'm 100% off road, so some asphault or carpet really looks interresting.

I currently drive a Cyclone. I would want to try an MSX or RDX because I've never owned a Tamiya or Corally car.

I think I would drive.... hmm... I don't know, as i do own couple different car
i would pick RDX for my carpet racing.
i would pick a yok bd, lcg, pro4, rdx for outdoor.

for me, it just comes down to what flavor i want to try for today.
as different car handles differently. but i would really like to try the cyclone.

I have a TC3 and TC4, but only run the TC3. If I had to change, I would wait for the next car from AE. All the other cars on the market are awesome, but I am a die hard Team Associated fan, and will most likely be loyal to them for another 20 years.
