ok i just switched from a tc3 to an fk05, not going to lie, but belt drive is alot easier to go fast, the car wasn't even setup correctly (it was close), i stopped part way to adjust my dual rate, and i still made my fastest 5 minute run....

this speaks volumes to me just how good the xray stuff is, and im not even running a t2 '007 hah.

i think the only way to make a proper comparison is to take 2 brand new cars to compare them. like a Kyosho SD and a Kyosho BD. or the yokomo BD and a yokomo SD.

comparing a old car to a new one and a different branded car is pointless.

The main reason for shaft feel harder to setup, is bcz shaft chassis usually less flex than belt chassis, ex: Pro4/TC4. The easiest way to increase setup-margin for shaft chassis is make chassis flex more, like remove some screw from top deck. It helps mech grip a lot.

Torque steering... is different problem, and probably no fix unless you mount motor 90deg accross chassis line, like RU prototype did.

Torque steer can be conquered easily by adjusting one of your rear shocks to offset the toruqe. In addition, lessening your droop and minimizing initial throttle on your ESC will nullify noticeable torque steer. But, people are a little too lazy to do this.

Why?

Its just another Band-aid fix for a car that has no business in R/C anymore..

The only reason why the shafts are still being built is Market share, the companies are still REACHING for that allmighty dollar..

Complain away...

I have been running for CorallyUSA for three years and put this car on the podium twice at the Reedy Race and over the last three years at the race we have put 5 cars in the 19 turn main every year..

This year I perdict 6 cars in the main with the Phi winning the hole thing..
The car will get the results on any surface, its all driver..
