Looking to get a couple of decent cars for asphalt 17.5 and 21.5 racing.
The XI Sport has been competitive with high $$$ cars in VTA & 21.5 .... you should have zero problems with the 2K18 ... will have mine next week but will continue running my XI Sport in VTA, asphalt season is just starting for us in florida ... not sure if I will run the XI or 2K18 on asphalt yet, might save the 2K18 for the rug.

My XI Sport and Ultimate 14 from this weekend.

Interested to see how this does. Hopefully the plastics are improved from previous cars.

What plastic issues were you having with previous 3Racing kits ?? I run several XI Sport's and a Ultimate 2014 in many different classes on carpet & asphalt, I have yet to have issues with anything ... sure I broke a arm when I clipped a corner pipe at full steering @ WOT , but I would be surprised if it didn't break

I run a 13.5T motor in my NU in an open class up in NC. The steering rack sheered, but once i replaced with with the alloy rack the car has taken a beating and keeps on rolling and I'm not a very good driver.

I had a D3 drifter that had issues with the front arms. Always liked the car, but the arms would always develop slop after a few packs. It was always the front arms too, the rears never developed slop.

Never had a D3 so no clue, looks like the newer D4 got new arms.
