Default XRAY T2R PRO. Is it a good start?

I'm thinking of getting this. Has anybody driven one? Can they be upgraded to a T2 009 latter? Are they okay for carpet and asphalt?

That car is a good way to get into 1/10 sedan racing on a budget. There are some minor differences between that and the '009 other than the chassis. The main difference that I noticed when building one for a friend was that it does not come with tie rods, instead it comes with some all thread. The first thing I'd suggest is switching those out to any tie rod you can find that is the correct length, unless you don't mind spending a little more to pick up the Hudy Spring Steel ones.

Otherwise it is a very good car for the $. Should be a great carpet rubber tire car. Of course, if you want to down the road, the '009 chassis, upper deck and shock towers will all fit, as well as any other part designed to fit the '009.

For $30-50 more you can get a fully optioned TC5 or Jrxs Type-R, with carbon fiber chassis, turnbuckles, metal diffs, etc. This car used to be a good deal at $200, not $300.
