Default Anyone prefer FK05 over T2?

Just wondering if anyone has had the chance to run both the FK05 and the T2 and preferred the FK05?

The FK05 is tuffer as far as durability for crashing off pipes and boards,
BUT otherwise NO! The T2 is better to drive.

Default Hi

From a pit mans point of veiw the T2 kill's the 05, the T2 is faster and easier to setup and maintain.

The 04 was defantly better than the 05, at least in stock and 19t on carpet, club racing and big races. The t2 is good though, its just newer and has less development time. I have run the car since it came out, ran a regional, national and club races inbetween and havent broken a single part, and I am running the stock front bumper.

Default T2 vs FK05

Thanks for the input. I've run the FK04 and is was definately a great car. Joel you are right about the pain running saddles. I know the FK05 and T2 are better geared than the FK04.

OK, sounds like the T2 is the way to go.

i play both car, for my impression..
T2 can pick up more cornering speed, easy to tune up, better adapt different track environment
but not as strong as 05, tweak problem, increase worn out rate of drive trains

overall, i will take T2 la...although more maintance job have to do then 05, but it really faster
