What do people run at the track? What DO YOU like? Are you a tamiya guy? I am....if i had the money to buy the 416 i would've bought it...

The m13.5 is a kick ass car. Everything about it is awesome. The cyclone tc is proper car but not my steez.

By far people say the t2'009 is the most best quality car well designed...

What's cheaper to repair? Maybe the cyclone.

What's more $$$...maybe the tamiya.

What's better designed...maybe mi3.5.


What's better all over and gets built with no cutting grinding and better parts... maybe the t2'.

i know the tamiya has better aluminum.

So look at these facters see what's up

And it is, I've had mine for just over a year, best car I've EVER owned(& that's over about 20 years of racing), & it's even better in full worlds Edition trim(just finished upgrading mine over the weekend & I'm LOVING how well it drives, even better than it was before). However, if you can't find replacement parts where you race, that might become a problem. Like any top of the line car, it's not indestructable, & not every shop seems to want to stock 416 parts right now(which is why it took several months for me to make the upgrades on my car, took that long to find all the parts I needed, though more common parts are a bit easier to find, like the suspension parts for example). Best thing to do is see what your local shops are willint to stock or order for you, & also see what kind of help you can get from the local racers on setting a particular car up(we can help some online, but NO ONE knows your local situation better than the guys who race there, they'll know more about setting up for it) before you commit that much money on a car....

X-Ray's are near indesructable... Only things to survive nuclear bombs; twinkies, cockroaches, and X-Ray touring cars.
