TA05, cheap, durable, fast

This question has been asked a million times. Need to know carpet or asphalt. What class, etc. The answer will be run what others at your track are running and what is supported locally for parts.

They do?? Ive had two Cyclones and a TA05 and I give the TA05 the nod. In this case though sounds like maybe he should go for the Xray since thats what the others are running.

Ever thought of schumacher, depending on how much you want to spend you could pick up a mi2ec fairly cheaply these days and you know youll have a competetive car there and then, however i do recomend a schumacher MI3, i am biased however its the easiest car out there too work on, and its shorley will be the qucikest out there sure enough

However if its either a xray t2 007, yokomo bd, schumacher mi3, tamiya msxx, hotbodies cyclone, there all quick in the right hands and with the right setup, it all comes down to what you like the look of, customer service etc.

Bottom line... get and T2 007. Whent from running TC4team to my xray, and im laps faster than I ever was in stock. The car is perfect and is made with the most care and percision of any thing ive ever seen. The car is not for beginners though I will say, no matter what other's would think.

What has good parts support at your local track? That is an easy way to narrow it down.
