The 009 is great car that can be set up to be very easy to drive, but the ne Mi4 has already won races against a few other top level drivers.

Xray has very good support but so does Schumacher so i think it will be a case of 'You pay's your money.....'

The UK has it's first national next weekend where Elliot Harper and Chris Grainger will be running the 2 cars in full competition. Will be interesting to see.

The results should appear here soon after;

you have to go 009 because the Mi4 isn't out yet ... Seriously though, you cannot go wrong with either car. Both are capable of winning any race on earth with the right driver. I raced schumacher cars for years, but went with the 009 with my most recent re-introduction into TC cars (been out for a few years) simply because I wanted to try a different car. I loved my missions, but the 009 is simply thee most amazingly precise car I have ever built. Talk about attention to detail!!

Again... either one.

Go with what you can get support for in your area.

I personally feel that XRAY craftsmanship is unparalleled. But damn those whips are crazy bank!!

The Schumacher looks nice, but I'm willing to bet , one good tap to a corner and those bulkheads will be toast. There just isnt enough material to maintain integrity. Purely my opinion.


The Xray is durable, and the fit/finish is second to none.

Grainger managed it in the warmup

http://www.wlrc.co.uk/results/09_05_...Qualifying.htm

Ollie Jeffries switched to the TC5 this winter, Adam Rogers runs a '009 I think.

Andy Moore put in a appearance as well, but we hardly ever see him racing in the UK.

Elliot Harper wasn't there today, so next weekend will decide

I have run my mi4 a few times and it has held up well during a few very hard crashes (oopsie). Honestly most touring cars these days are comparable in durability, just a matter of which part will brake. Run the car that you will be able to have local parts support for. Either car you will find plenty of setup help online.
