Default American Cars

Which would you pick? the ft tc4 or the jrxs losi? just doing this for fun guys to see who will have the most support from the 2 cars in the us. Tell us y you think so and do you think they are trying to make a car that will run with the corally ,T2,yoko, and esc... let here what you think.

To me the tc4 is a great car nothing wrong with it at all i really dont think the drive shaft hurts it all that much all though AE need to work on the steering,and diffs.. Thats the weak point i see on this car. To me they need to scrap this car and start over for 07 with a new drive shaft car or belt car whatever just something that will be strong,fast,and consistant. Also they need to put out a car with ceramic bearings that should be part of the FT even if the price hit's 400 but the us is in die needs of a great tc.

Exclamation My opinion and personal experience

Losi by far belt drive is the way to go right now. and with the battery in the canter gives it godd weight distribution.

I drive a cyclone my self but i almost bought a losi first. i have a tc4 also but it doest have asmuch corner speed as the belt cars do. And the tc4 takes aolot more setup changes to find that magic setup. It took me almost a whole season to find it and i am still .3 seconds slowerer than the losis and x rays

Well if you want an American Tourer, you only have one choice:

Losi. Associated is no longer an American Company.

I would go with the JRX-S, seems like a really good kit and has been a proven winner

Cheers
