I own both, go with a T2. The MSX is a awesome car, but it does take more effort to get dialed in. Personally I would rather practice to get faster, than hunt down a winning setup like I do with my Tamiya's.

This is true for races like the Snowbirds, Nationals, Cleveland, Novak, etc. But for club racing my stock chassis and top deck are faster than the solid ones. Its only in extreme traction, that most will not be running on 99% of the time, that the stiffer chassis/top deck will make a difference.

Hara had his own Mechanic (who also designs cars for a few differnt companies) working on everything but tires for him at the Roar Nationals.

In Vegas Reinhard had the whole Tamiya team there plus mechanics. So your logic there isnt logical...if that makes sense...LOL

At the worlds in FL, if I am not mistaken, there were 8 or 9 Xrays in the B main which made for the largest percentage of top 20 cars of any manufacture...But it was the B main as you stated.

I guess people can go on and on about how the Tamiya is better than the X Ray because it has won the past two worlds, vegas, and countless other races. One can also say the X Ray is better since Paul has pretty much cleaned up all of the most recent modified races with his X Ray in the United States. But say Rheinhart drove an X Ray, or Lemieux(sp?) drove a Tamiya. Then one could say that the results would change. Saying one car is better than another because it has won more events doesnt seem logical, because im sure with time they could win with any car. Any of the profesional drivers could win with any of the top cars(HB, Tamiya, X Ray, Yokomo, Associated, Losi, etc.) It just depends where their loyalty lies, or who pays them the most

I know what the Xray site says no need to yell it out to everyone on here. I was simply stating when you "might" need to go to a thicker chassis. When I went to the stiffer top deck on my car I didnt notice any difference other than it didint tweak if you hit something hard. Thats about the only thing I really noticed.
