Default Which kit?

hi guys, i would be getting another touring kit soon and am caught between an Xray T2'007, Tamiya TRF415 MRE and Cyclone WCE. Since i would be going to the states(Indiana) in Aug, i would like to get one kit where the spares would be easy to locate over there. Btw, i'm currently in singapore. Thanks!

IMO look into a TA05 to start off with. Parts galore with conversions up the ying yang.

i have considered the Mi3.. however the prob is that there is no parts support in sg.... so would not be as feasible for me... i have even considered the other brands like Team Associated TC5, Avid, Corally RDX etc.. etc.. however all these are lacking in parts support in singapore.

i know for a sure thing that MRE and Cyclone WCE is a kick a$$ kit... but is there any truth that tamiya will be coming out with a new kit soon for the upcoming worlds?

Also, how is the MRE and WCE compared to the Kyosho TF5 Stallion?

I was considering getting a top level kit like yourself, but after upgrading my ta-05 im happy with its performance.

I wouldnt say that I would have "wasted" my cash on a top level car, but I did begin to try justifying the cost and I couldn't. Simply because a better car wont make anyone a better racer.

.....I just wanted a reliable,strong car that can mix well with more expensive stuff
