Default Talk Me Out Of An XRAY T2

I'm diving into the world of on-road. I've always wanted an Xray car, and I'm pretty close to getting a T2, but I thought I'd run it by a bunch of strangers before I committed.

I know there's millions of threads about each car, each car vs each car, blah blah... but let's get a T2 shoot-out. Talk me out of it.

I'll start by saying that parts availability is not a concern. My other considerations would be the Pro 4 and TC4.

Should look at the Cyclone.That is a really nice car as well.I would take the Pro4 over the TC4.

Tell you what, I'll talk you into buying one!

Just go with your feelings. The Xray is a great car, hands down. There durable and pretty easy to set up. Plus the adjustments are all there without the need for more "optional" parts. It's fast right out of the box. Pretty much any touring car is great if set up properly. Go with what is run at your local track. Go with what has the most part support. I will tell you this, the Xray is a great choice. Would highly recommend that.

The Pro 4 is another great car as well. Not much of a HPI fan, but wow, great car and its durable as well.

The Tc4 is another great car as well. I personally think its a little more brittle from what I hear, but that's another story.

Simply put, just by what is run at your track and has the part support. Parts can be purchased online and usually arrive within a couple days if you order from say CA or WY. All and all, choose what you think is better and just remember itís a hobby for fun!

Jason B.....the Pro 4 is an outstanding shaft drive car. It is really good for stock and 19turn spec because it is very efficient. The cyclone is another great choice if you want to go belt drive. Just started tuning the Cyclone on asphalt it is pretty much dialed right out of the box.

I wouldn't say the shaft drive is very efficient compare the thin belt drive Dwayne think about it there's two belts and pulley no drag
the drive shaft have ,two bevel gears,two ring gears and the main shaft drive sound like more mechanical there than the belt drive

i was talking to someone at my local track who has owned almost every xray car, t1 t1r t1fk04, and the t2. his son owned an fk05 too. anyways, this guy says that out of all of them, the t2 was the hardest to drive out of all of them. im not saying that it will be hard for every one, but just a little note.

get a tamiya trf 415 msx refine 2. you will forget about all the rest. the car is amazing. if you prefer shaft drive. get the factory team tc4. ive been running touring for a long time and the 415 is the best car i have ever owned. it builds flawlessly and parts are cheaper than the t2. t2 is better on carpet than asphalt. you wont be dissapointed. just my opinion.
