I did however change the chassis and shock towers to graphite, but even with the price of these on top of the kit you are still looking at a cheap car for the money - cheaper than top specification kits but still plenty adequate.

Needless to say, I am not looking to change my car soon!

The '007 is the best car I have driven to date. I tried 90% of the cars on the market and the Xray has the best instructions, handling, quality,design for fast chassis changes, and help that I have owned.

Obviously your just jealous about something.

And trust me. I was always against buying one because of the hype, but it was true.

Nope, I smoke guys in their Xray whatchahoozits every week with my plastic TA05. They talk trash...get beat BADLY and then blame everything on droop or tweak or shock oil...every week.

I know, when they win it's the chassis when they lose it's the driver...typical Xray driver.

I hate these type of threads, they always stray away from the question. This guy obviously wants a ready to run (basher car for now). 007 is not a basher, look at the two options he gave you, and the price range. Give him advise on a similar car thats obvioulsy what he likes. I think the cyclone S would fit your budget, alot of option parts out there if you decide to get serious about racing and the parts are readily available.

It is mainly hype, the right setup, (rollout, motor, ride height, droop, springs, tire, etc...) driver and any of these high end cars on the market today and you can win every weekend. Most important is who's behind the wheel.

and this is a hell of a deal! https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...0&showbig=6809

I hate them too. I think people should make up their own mind about what car to get. Its really not that hard these days because ALL KITS ARE GOOD TO EXCELLENT QUALITY.....PERIOD! Because chances are that if your starting a thread to decide what kit to get, your not the type who is going to notice the 'tenth of a second' difference between one kit and another.

Follow a couple simple steps and you can't go wrong:
1. decide your price range
2. find a car YOU like the look of
3. make sure you can find parts for it, either online or locally
4. buy the car
5. go have fun

Simple really. The last thing you want to do is start a thread on a message board to ask people what they think. Because as you see by the responses...it don't work too well.

T2R. For the money these cars are un-beatable, no questions. I've had Hot-Bodies, Schumachers, TC3's, Losi's even Tamiya's and I can say that the Xray product is made of high quality materials to high tolerences. They are also very strong and can take big hits.
As a beginner to the hobby, the strength of the car should be top of your list and the xray is prob the strongest make on the market.

Thanks for your opinion, now with that being said they need to make a RTR version and this would be a great car to suggest for this particular thread.

The problem with these threads is that most people with suggestions don't bother to even read the original post.

Dude could be asking for help picking a new coffee mug, and guys would still suggest a $390+ touring car!
