I know many of you will say, but rustler753 they are the same...its the driver that what counts bla bla bla...and the avereage driver say
corny example:
OMFG!!!!1111 dude get a tamiya or
stay with the TC3 it rules!!!1111......

but I want a pros opinion, whos racing for a while and actually has wins under his/her belt. Why is the (xray or hpi ) better? What makes it so special? which has a better drive train? Which is lighter? Better design? More balanced? Which chassis has the least amount of flex? Which drives better and haddles with precision? Which one you don't have to mod much or even at all to get it to perform (unlike the TC3 which needs modding like a mofo). I know you are professionals and I want your professional opinion, because we all have our preference and I want to hear them . Speak up ! Let your voices be heard!!

peace out
If you are going to go how the pros are doing with it, the Xray has done well at the Reedy Race, and the KO race. The Pro4 did well at the Reedy Race and the ROAR nats. It's not the car, it's the driver. Oh, and what shade of Orange is on that Apple?

Default T1R Raycer

Hi everyone

I have been running a TC3 for about 2 years now and am getting tired of some of it's weak spots(I'm not a very good driver). I was looking at the T1R Raycer, is it decent or should I just save my money until I can afford the T1R FK?

If you just play for fun and on and off in racing, T1R should be the perfect choice. If you really into racing T1FK is the best bet and the strongest car available today. From T1R in order to upgrade to T1FK, it cost you, I belive, more than twice the price for T1R while the original cost 50% more expensive between those two.

The T1R is more than just decent. Very durable, and forgiving. It will teach you alot of the basics of driving and will last a while.

Wes,

Let me know if you are interested in a T1R, I might be able to hook you up with a good condition used one. It'll be cool, I can help you out with the setup.

Like all the guys been saying, the T1R is a good and durable car.

Give me a call and we can chat.

Dom

i had a tc3 for my competition car then i switched to the T1R and i must say it's amazing, haven't broke anything in a whole year and it's sooooo quiet and smooth, one of the best buys i have ever got , and there is so many things you can adjust

Default XRay T1 Factory Kit

Folks,

If you're interested, MarkP has posted a comprehensive review of the XRAY T1 Factory Kit comparing it with the TRF 414 at 3hobby.com.

Click "Read more ..." when you go there and enjoy!

He plans to write part II of review as he progresses with building both these kits.

Cheers.

i'm too lazy to do a search...

can anyone tell me what's the major different between a T1-Racer and a T1 FT ? i can only see plastic vs graphite chassis and 4wd vs oneway....

does the FT worth $120+ extra? I care more about the performance than the look of graphite...

At least you're honest.

The T1R has the plastic tub chassis and the long arm suspension from the orignal Evo2. The Factory car has the short arm suspension, lightened bulkheads, lightened drive hexes, drive shafts, lightened layshaft, new shock tower in the rear, low ratio pulleys (don't know if the T1R has those) and narrow belts front and rear (again, don't know if they T1R has them.)

In my opinion, yes, the Factory car is worth the price difference.

i would appreciate some feedback on the following question.

when assembling the rear arms, they do not move up and down freely with the 2mm toe in clip, what can i do to resolve this issue? with the clip in it pushes the back out and thats when it binds, with the clip out it moves up and down freely. has anyone else had these problems if so what was the answer.

thanx in advance

The instructions advise that you may have to sand down the clip a little to maintain free operation of the arm, this ensures that the arm has zero slop but also allows free movement.
