yokomo sd ssg special or xray t1 evo 2 ?

Ive been looking in to TCs and i was looking for an xray evo2. I cant find any for sale but i found some yokomo ssg specials for sale for a little less than an xray. What are the pros and cons on each of em and which is overall better?

I like the aluminum bulks,graphite chassis and xrays reputation on the evo2 but on the ssg I like the silver graphite chassis and shaft drive... Im ganna do some racing and some just messing around with a lehner brushless system.... what should i get?

Xray.. Its a Tank and it handles Really Well. The Brokomo Is a Fast car but Breaks Alot. Just My 2 cents.

Sorry forgot. No its the Graphite Chassis. Xray t1r is teh Tub chassis. EvoII is a much better car imo.

yeah i want the evo2 but someone has an evo2 but with a t1r chassis which i dont want.

Mainly im asking if I should get a new assembled yokomo sd ssg for 150 or a used xray evo2 for $75 more....

how easily do yoks break? I would think that the sd ssg would be alot better with the shaft drive...

Get the x-ray they are harder to break and easier to get parts for.

I really like the Yoks. I have the CGM, so it might be a little different and I don't have issues with it breaking. There is another thread here vs. an Alex R2.

get the xray, I have had both of them and the xray is way stronger and easier to get parts for. also i think the xray is easier to set up imo.

This is another "what car" thread. Everyone that has X car will say X car is better, I would look into parts support and how many people run that car at your LHS or your home track.
