Thanks for that min-epower, hope your driving is better than your sarcasm

Where else could I ask this question!! isnt that what forums are for? Hopefully you guys who have raced a few cars in big clubs might have some insight to share, other than sarcasm.

For example, has anyone seen a race where 415s and xrays have gone head to head

thanks for your replies
It depends on what your skills level is and what you're looking for. If you're mid range driver looking for an easy to setup and sturdy car, then the T1R is the best for you, it won't be the quickest on a single lap I agree, but it'll probably help you being consistant. If you're a hardcore racer, don't make many mistakes, know how to setup a car and are looking for the best performance, then either the 415 or the FK05 will perform well.

Don't forget at club level, a car's performance is down to its driver's ability to setup and drive it, not necessarily to the car's itself, so head to head racing between FK05's and 415 will prove nothing worth, since at one club the better driver will have the 415 and will beat the FK05, and at another it'll be the contrary. I myself like to think they're pretty similar.

Once you get accustomed to the ordering system it's awesome. I get things from Japan usually faster then I do things from Cali.

You need to read the link on the homepage "How to Order"

Then go back and click "Today's Stock List" then "RC Car and Parts".

That will take you to a huge text file with the parts listed. If you have a part number that is usually the easiet way to find something.

Like many will tell you. The ordering process takes some getting used to but overall the service is great and products usually arrive in about 5 days (Chicago, IL).

Thanks bro, thats what I was after, didnt know where the 415 slotted in with regards to the level of performance it is capable of.

I have grown tired of the Pro 2 and I like the way the components are laid out on the 415, like an Evo but belt, having the motor stick out so far must help to counter act the weight of the battery?

I am thinking of getting the Liteweight suspension set, what do you guys think? I have also seen on Ebay the MS components set which is only the rear hubs and bottom are link thingys, they have letters stamped in them

I will be racing 12 turn on dusty asphalt so any suggestions for suspension and gearing setups would be greatly appreciated

thanks guys
