Default Destiny vs Infinity

I'm looking at upgrading from my TOP Sabre S4 due to a lack of parts available.

I have narrowed it down to the Destiny and infinity.

What is better for 13.5t?

Parts cost is a concern with the if14 but I do have a friend that races one so I wont need the same level of parts.

Really can't pick between them.

Everyone I've known with a destiny has had the same complaint.. I can't get parts or even a email back !! I'd say infinity or get a second choice like xray or something.

I just picked up the infinity, to me the build quality was excellent. I have only been able to use twice so far. I like it and seems durable.

You're in Australia? If so, very good Destiny support through Speedy RC. Both cars are competitive in 13.5 on asphalt.

Both cars are winners. I love my Destiny because it's a rocket.

I run the IF14 car. Rally well built, and I like the business model of bringing out up grades every few months rather than a whole new car.

When did you email? Destiny USA has changed its setup probably since you had this issue.

Speedy RC does a great job in Australia for support. I believe they support both Infinity and Destiny. I would say to go with what looks comfortable for you and what you can get the most help with.

I've gone Infinity as a friend has one and should help not having a bunch of spares all at once.

Thanks everyone for your replies
