Talking I am now officially broke!

Thought I like to thank everyone in giving me advice.... I have made my choice!!!

It is the RC LAB 7even Evo1....

I spoke to Mike there and he is the most enthusiastic and helpful bloke. I am sure he will back up with the spares should I need them! The guy's service is incredible! I called him last Friday afternoon, and the car arrived 8:25 a.m. on Saturday morning!!! and the price was inclusive the shipping!!!

To go with the RC Lab I spent the rest of the on:

P2K Pro motor
LRP F1 Digital Pro ESC
Sanyo 2400 packs (x2)
TO SSA tyres...
Radio/Charger/shock oil....

As for the shell, I am keeping it quiet until it is done!!!
.... and paint which is going on the car this week!!!

Had no sleep building the car and I promise you it is worth it!!!!!

Will post the final article when completed!!!

I would have to say the TC3, not just because it is awesome, but because you can get parts anywhere. All 3 hobbystores here have parts for it, so I never have to worry if i break something. The Xray is a great car too, but you will have a hard time getting parts. If you don't mind waiting for mail order if you break something, get the Xray...otherwise get a TC3

Well, not exactly. It doesn't include steel diffs or a one-way. But that's the only things I can think of that aren't in the factory team kit.

...and the whole spring set. To be honest you really wouldnt want to weigh down your car with steel diffs.

Then explain why some of the pro use the steel diffs. They are far smoother, and they dont change adjustment.

Its like butta
