I decide almost always with 2 questions in mind:

- What do you look for in a car?

- Parts availability?

Default XXX-S G+

I've never owned a schumacher SST Mission nor a tamiya TRF414MII but I do have the XXX-S G+.

The XXX-S G+ is awesome!

For me the XXX-S G+ is a great car for a tight track, but the TC3 is better when more straight-a-ways are involved.

These cars work better for my driving style.

The problem with the tamiya is not parts availability it's the cost of parts,The Schumacher is a nice car,but parts availability is a problem in some area's,and from what I've seen they do have a problem with belts(breaking)and the front end.The xxxs is a good car also but it to has it's problems,it has breakage problems(but parts are cheaper & easy to find.)Is the car for race or play?If you plan on racing,go to the local track and see what most racers are running and who's willing to help
