Default Xray T1 Evo 2 VS Xray T1R!!!!! Which Is Better?

Hi, I am thinking about getting a new kit.

There's this two kit that I am interested in. First one is a second hand Xray T1 Evo 2 and the other one is a brand new Xray T1R.

I just need to know which car is a better deal in terms of performance and price.

Both car is around the same price with the new Xray T1R costing about USD50 more.

It depends if the EVO has C hubs or not, if so then it probably would but if it had pivot balls then it probably wouldn't.

If you want to drive it on asphalt, then T1R is not bad at all.
The chassis flex more than Evo2, so it will actually give more grip on outdoor track.
With Evo2, the pivot ball version is more rigid than the C hub version that it will be more suitable on high grip carpet track.
And don't forget the great feel when building a new kit (especially Xray kit ), you must take this into consideration.

Well I do race a lot more on asphalt compared to carpet tracks.

Actually, what is the difference between these two kits??

I know that the T1 Evo2 has a carbon chassis compared to T1R's tub chassis. But is that all the differences???

I have heard that some says that the T1R performs a little bit better than the Evo2. If so, why would anyone spend more money on the Evo2 whereas the T1R is much better.

Btw, whats the difference between the C hub and the pivot ball thingy????

I race evo2 its much more adjustable (with the pivot ball suspention) than the raicer but the adjusting is much more complicated than any of cars i had owned but when you get it right it handles sweet if you get the evo2 you should look out for the front belt it may be weared out (the onley thing that i had problems with) it handles great on asphalt too

Always heard good things of the T1r on asphalt

Hade a PB xray and it was hard to drive on low grip asphalt for me, not so forgiving. I think the flex of the tub chassis would be good on low bite.

i have had all model xrays from evo2 to fk05 and the t1r is really good and the chassis has more life in them (they take more of a beating to break chassis's)

Back to my question, if the T1R is competitive enough to compete against the Evo2, then why would anyone wanna spend more money on the Evo2???

Shouldn't they get the much cheaper T1R????

People love to spend more money on bling and CF
The T1R is perfectly good enough to be competitive, it's more the driver than the car anyways.

It would probably be easier to get hold of a T1R, you see too many evo's for sale that are new.

Owh yea, I've just found sumone sellin a second hand Hpi Pro 4. Should I even consider this offer???

The price is a little bit cheaper than the brand new T1R but just a little anyway.

How?????????

Btw, I am actually in a dilema whether wanted to go with a shaft or belt driven car. I have previously use a belt driven car which is a TA04-S.

I really wanted to try shaft ones this time. However it seems like shaft driven cars have a lot of problem and is no where near a belt driven car in terms of performance. Is this true??????

I have long for a shaft car but I don't even dare to try getting one without further info on them. So guys HELP me!!!!!

t1r will be easier to handle on asphalt

pro4 is a rad car but a hand-full for the novice.

parts wise and price take a look, but usually ebay is flooded with xray parts for cheap...

pro4 is and will remain more current, maybe take a look at a losi xxx-s if you want simplicity amd speed- the car requires minimal set-up and is mad-easy to drive. I miss mine sometimes

word.
