Default asphalt...lowbudget

tb evo5? ta-05r?
i was planning to make my xray fk05 into asphalt car, and buy a xray t2 007 US for indoor carpet...but after reading reviews and stuff about ta-05...it seems attractive..i know the performance will never be as good as xray...but for that price? its very good!.

if i dont get another car, id be getting a nitro car...probably a tamiya mk2 PRO/ or SG or a team magic g4s...or a 2nd hand used from a buddy.

My rc car progression has been TA03 - Yokomo SD, Losi XXXS - Tamiya TA05 - XRay T1FK05 - Tamiya TA05

I find the TA05 easier to drive, far more durable, easier to set up and despite being a tad heavier, FASTER than my T1FK05 ever was.

Can't say I understand the X Ray fascination.

OVERPRICED is all that comes to my mind!

have a look at the TOP/SY Scythe,

it was designed for rubber/asphalt and is priced really well compared to a similar speced TA05.

I ran my FK05 all last season outdoors. It ran really well and was very stable. If thats what your used to driving then that is what I'd stick with. You can get some nice chassis protector sheets from Trent to keep the scratches to a minimum.
