Default Mi3.5 or t2r pro?

Hi,

I am a bit stuck for choice, as I am pretty new and racing my tamiya Tl-01, but I need something a bit better, as they are not the best for club racing, as they seem to struggle a bit on speed, and corners. I first had a look at the T2r, but then found the mi3.5, which looks a lot better, and it is a bit cheaper too. So any ideas which one?

Either car you will do fine with. The Mi3.5 is a great asphalt car but if u plan on running any carpet racing go with the t2r pro because it just works better

I know you had things narrowed down to those 2 cars, and they are good ones, you wouldnt go wrong with either. But for the same price or less you can get the awesome Robitronic Avid. It's truely a world class car. I believe speedtech has them on sale for a great price. Kit goes together well, parts just fit. Great planes is now a distrubitor for robitronic so parts wont be a problem.

Better than any of those choices, Schumacher just announced the Mi4 LP Race edition. The LP version of the car incorporates some changes aimed specifically at LiPo, including a new chassis. The Race version runs a cheaper fibreglass chassis, and the previous generation shocks, but otherwise is identical to the Mi4 LP Pro. It is a lot of car for the money. It's due out in about 2-3 weeks.

I must argue against the MI3.5 not working on carpet. Works very good on carpet.

But if you have the coin, MI4!!!

Are you looking at the "race" version of the mi3 or the regular version with the carbon chassis?
