T2R belts, pulleys etc will do well even on a normal unprepped lot? I'll be bashing mostly 70% but I really want to go around the track sometimes.

I couldnt agree more. Here in NYC, it's all about who can run the longest. Nitros have the luxury of refilling. This in itself gave them the upper hand. Now with li-pos, we electric guys can run while they pit, gaining crucial laps on them; enabling us to pit later in the race at our comfort and discretion. Kudos to you in duffing out those nitro dudes.

Belts and shaft cars all need maintanence. You will by far enjoy a good belt drive car over any shaft. Just use an air compressor after you run your car. And don't ever run your car in the water.

I still believe shaft cars are still competitive even though you got torque steer or whatever , its not like belt cars dont. they slightly do but not even to effective performance.. I would like to see other companys than kyosho right now put out shaft driven cars, everything can get better as everything keeps improving.

The STR4 Pro2 has new hard suspension parts available now , these are virtually unbreakable.

According to several dudes I know that own the EVO V, Tamiya has conquered the whole torque steer thing as well as diff access. I just cant see taken out a second mortgage to get into Tamiya products like I have with HPI/Hot Bodies.

Evo V is so expensive though... $380? Ow. Yeah, my list of cars I'm considering are

1. T2R
2. TC4 Team (cheap!)
3. XXX-S G+ same price as T2R
4. TB02

others are too expensive... just worried about destroying the T2R with bashing and drifting.

XXX-S is an excellent car, just the special gears for the car will give you fits.
The TC4 is a nice car. Pick up a used TC3 and strip it for parts.
TB02-c'mon man, you may as well search for at least a TB04.
T2R-it's Xray. Nuf said!
