If car manufacturer X upsets people so much by "copying" a design, then why support it? Simply don't buy it and that should resolve the issue right?


Don't forget that the Tamiya cannot compete against most cars on foam...so obviously the Xray must not be a carbon copy or it wouldn't work either.

And lets not use the excuse that Xray has all the drivers.... Tamiya has Reinhardt, had surikarn, David Jun, had Rick Howart......

yes,and how did reinhardt do at vegas his first time out on foam carpet at vegas?pretty good for a car that cant do carpet.and lets face it bro,when 9 out of 10 usual suspects are running xray,they should hopefully make the show. im sorry dude,you know i like you bro but c'mon,how can you look at the history and think that there is anything inovative.lets face it bro.Tamiya set the standards for touring cars,xray is not the only one.tamiya made the car work so everyone follows.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ya gotta do what works. "Brand X" has shot to the top of the field and developed a loyal fan base. All of the cars out now look the same (except Losi) and we all know that it's the little adjustments and measurements that make the difference. However, "looks like an Xray" doesn't do any justice to the company who came up with the design. I'm glad that most cars look the same because it makes it easier to justify the car. When a brand goes out in left field with a design, you have to wonder why no one else thought of it, or why they're not copying it. Once again, I'm not hating on "Brand X" just not willing to give them credit for others hard work. And I obviously like the product, because I'm still driving it.

I never said ideas were not used...so you are telling me the xray is a direct copy of the tamiya? Then with the worlds best drivers why can't tehy make the car work? you said it yourself it doesn't work on carpet...why does the Xray? Something has to be different....maybe its the Quasi-Isotropic Graphite...

I am not bitter, I am just adding some veggies to the stew!

Why don't we do some work and catch up? Sorry we are not spending the $$$ to get the dream team. So what you are saying that the reason you are fast, Ralphie, Baker, Lemiuex, and whoever else you have on your team is because of the car....interesting.

Like I said earlier, however you did not feel like reading all my post. Xray makes great stuff and they are on top right now. Congrats to them. JOB WELL DONE!!! Sorry if I bashed there!!

See at the Birds!

Luv ya bye

quasi? more like G10 and warped like a banana.

all kidding aside,you are speaking of U.S. drivers vs. european drivers who do asphalt.the tamiya,hot bodies,xray,schumacher,or whoever will do excellent on carpet if enough time was spent.look at the xray top dogs bro,they are carpet drivers.look how well all the other brands do on asphalt.that is what they do.turn the tables and xray is in the same boat
