Compared to the Stallion, the 416-WE is cheaper for what you get.

Stallion has plastic upper bulk-heads, plastic center shaft hold-downs, a very wide lower deck, steel turnbuckles, and is also a couple years older. Also the stock steering tie-rod turnbuckles interfere with the suspension mount at full lock and must be replaced with something lower profile...

Stock setup for the 416 is front spool.
Stock setup for the Stallion is front one-way.

This may also be a factor that helps you pick...

i love my 416 world edition

the best car i have driven , although i must admit i like the Xray 009 almost as much

not driven or seen the Kyosho so i can't comment on that car

be quick with your decision as the TRF416WE is short stock as far as i read

BTW:
The Kyosho Stallion "Shin" edition seems to be a MUCH better car all around vs the regular TF5 Stallion. I'm guessing it's gonna cost more though. No more plastic bulk-heads or diff out-drives. It appears to be fully hopped up. I'm guessing the steering turnbuckles will still hit the suspension blocks though, and need replacing...

Here's a nice review and comparison: http://www.overrc.com/techniques/reg...allion_eng.htm
