Like most, I think it all depends on what the fast guys at the local tracks pick up. Around here, it seems to me that the Xray is the way to go, but who knows... when they come out it could be all TC5's or maybe all Mi3's.. its all about parts support locally. said time and time again, but only because its true. But if I had to pick... I'd say the Mi3.

Is the TC5 coming too early, they haven't been doing that good on carpet, maybe it's more for asphalt? If my poor memory is correct, it did better in EU on asphalt.

If you are winning races.... you might drive an Xray.

A belt driven car will bring Team Associated back to respectability. Just my thought.
So how do Xray parts compare to Tamiya parts in cost?

Na, I just like giving these guys grief. People like Butter and EA make it fun, they seem to "get" it. I'd buy them all a round as a sign of good faith at a race or something, I'm really just poking fun. You can only rehash the same tired old threads about batteries, motors or which car is best so many times before you get cynical.

The right answer is that nobody can tell you what car you need. There's a reason there are so many companies that make successful cars, and that's because everybody's needs are different. Anybody that says "you should buy this car" is a homer. What you need to do is assess your personal situation, do some research, find out what works where you plan on racing, and make an informed decision. But people are lazy, and sometimes dumb, and they want to be spoon-fed information rather than researching it for themselves.

There's a quote somewhere that I'm about to butcher. It's something like "99.99% of the world live their entire lives asleep. The rest of us live every single day in constant amazement." Which one are you?
