Are you new to tc racing? What type, foam or rubber? How much do you want to spend? Do you need the best?

Xray: In general - fantastic fit and finish. The best. No slop, no shims. Very strong cars. Some issues with the older ones and the integrated axles scalloping out in a crash. Hence the switch to the "regular" axle on the '007.
EXPENSIVE!

Cyclone: In General - proven design. Winner so many times over we've lost count. Parts carried over from Pro4 (lots of testing and success). Some claim better corner speed with a Cyclone than with the X-ray.
Cheap! (relatively speaking - count the cost of replacements too..)

In the end: They're so similar (look at the bulkheads, the diffs, etc. etc.) both in design and performance, it doesn't matter which you get. The WC Cyclone is a good bet, and there are two versions of the '007.

Go for local parts support - it sucks to sit on the sideline waiting for parts.

XrayFK, imprsme,
Thanks for the tips but that didn't answer my question..

To those guys that answered my question, thank you so much.. I really appreciate it.. I know what to get now..

trilerian,
Yes sir, I'm just new to racing.. Rubber.. I don't know how much will I spend.. and I don't need the best for me what I need is a kit that's the best and will last longer in the near future, that is for racing.. But I will not race that much.. I just want to get a kit that's better for keeping than regreting getting the ugly one..

Take Note: What kit is the best for my MONEY.. thanks..

Tamiya TA05 (new Kit with TRF Dampner Hop-up), or a used 415MSX - there are alot of these cars available used because of the release of the 415MRE and the upcoming 415MSXX - Great car and you can probably find them for around 200.00 US

Not sure what country your in but here's my suggestion:
Hotbodies Cyclone-S. Note it's the "S" version.
It's only $159.99 USD and it too shares parts from the HPI Pro-4.

Mfg site http://www.hotbodiesonline.net/kit.p...n&partNo=66403

Retailer site http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNZC7&P=7

Good luck.

I suggest a used xray fk05 with the 2mm chassis. They are stable, parts are strong, and you get the xray quality. My fk05 is actually easier to drive than my t2. The only problem with fk05 would be parts, but stormer has quite a few parts still. My 2 cents.

A good ol used Xray T1FK'04 or '05 (between 100$US to 175$US shipped) but only if your local hobby shop as spare parts. These Xray car go cheap now since the racers allways want the brand new model (presently T2'007).

My first car (used) was a Schumacher Mi2. The only problem is that when I broke a part, my local hobby shop didn't have no parts for it. These Xray car go cheap now since the racers allways want the brand new model (presently T2'007).

You keep saying that you have a TA05 but don't like it but are just getting started. The TA05 is HIGHLY upgradable...indestructible, parts are everywhere but you don't like yours. You haven't really said a thing about what you're looking for in a TC or what price range you're looking for. I've seen lots of guys blow away more expensive chassis with their TA05s. Still one of the best chassis out there for the money. I know you don't like yours but if people keep saying it's a good chassis (I'm at least the 3rd or 4th to say so) then it is a good chassis. I'd say, keep it and work with it or sell it to me cheap. I love mine and could use a second.
