Default Carpet noob question on 415MS

It this car competitive? I might pick up a used one. What would I need to add on as essential hop ups?

Thanks!

The TRF415MS is one of Tamiya's cars that is about 2 years old. This car is one of their best cars that Tamiya makes and normally runs for $400 to $500 dollars. But their have been newer versions of this car that have came out recently (almost the same as older one).

If you were to buy this you could definitly be competive and would not need many hop-ups at all but I don't reccomend it if you are not racing it beacuse this is not a good car for bashing or meshing around outside with!

Replace the stock tie-rods the blue alluminum units snap easily. Also get a parma/p-dub bumper and you should be set....

I am also selling my ms . It's like new. Make an offer. I'll let it go cheap. I've had it for 2 years and only drove it for 2 tamiya races. The car is great. I didn't want to beat it up for the tamiya races. Very few scratches and titanium scres through out. PM me if you or anyone else is interested. You won't find a better MS car.
