Default R2 vs Yokomo SD

OK, from Tamiya TB Evo 3, HPI PRO 4, Yokomo SD.. it comes down to R2 and Yok SD. Which one do you guys prefer? Which is more durable (crashes).. Also i run asphalt.

Thanks for the help.

ive heard the Yokomo breaks easily and parts support isnt the greatest in the world...weve had a couple guys run the Yokomo at my local track and it was hard getting parts i believe...i own an R2 and happen to like it alot the only part i have broken is the front spindle carrier...parts support is pretty good from speedtech id get what you think you would enjoy more and go from there...both cars have the potential to be as fast as any other car out there

The only time you'll have problems getting yokomo parts is when your hobby shop doesn't order them, They're available.

I have an SD and to be honest i cant say a bad thing about it. (touch wood) I have driven an R2 and I found it to be almost the same although it broke a few times when my friend ran it on carpet.

Another vote for the R2. I had an SD and to me, the R2 is easier to work on and definately more durable.

If you have to ask where to gear a 10x2, perhaps you shouldn't be running it just kidding. It all depends on the track, if it's a tight track, or if it's wide open...If it helps, I've run Kr10's at TA and we'd gear them around 7.8-8.2. Of course the motor would be done after that run but that's what a comm lath is for and I am still kind of a newbie with mod motors too

I love my SD. From what I understand, the R2 takes a while to get tweked right. Once its up to speed, its a matter of personal taste.
