Default E4 vs T2008

Dear friends

I am buying a new car and I am thinking about Team magic E4RS or Xray t2008. I am going to use unlt blrushless motors 6.5t or less... what is your impression about these cars? what fits better lipo batts, how are they at on road tracks? what car is more durable? any body would like to compare them?

Thanks

there are some smoking deals to be had on the 008 right now you can get them for about $399 - $425

but if you are worried about lipo and brushless, I would also think about the 009 that is right around the corner, it comes with the lipo addons to help with fitment and balance

The E4RS has been posting good finishes lately and will be a good chassis also. The deciding factor should be parts availability. Wolf Hobbies has had quick turn around for parts orders so far. I'm running the JS version for VTA and the car is very fast stable and competitive.

The E4RS is very lipo friendly.

Shims for the top plate, hardly worth paying the premium for.

Even though I run an E4 I'm gonna have to suggest getting the T2'008. The
E4 switches direction very well but it has room for improvment everywhere else. It is also very weak, however, it is very lipo friendly. Get the T2.

$399 is for the 5-cell Rubber car. Still the 6-cell Foam is only $439 at stormer.

I'm curious about how you define "weak".

The E4-RS is a killer car. If you run on a tight tecnical track you cannot beat the handling. Both are very good cars but the E4 is very forgiving with set-ups and is easier to drive in my opinion.
