I'd think the Evo 3 SL would rank up in there with the Yokomo & the Pro4....I have heard people who own both Pro4 & Evo3 have gotten thier Pro4's faster

Is there any reason why you want no belt drive cars??

is it just because people think shaft is faster??

The Xray is no slouch...parts fit and finish is probably the best you'll find in the market, the durability is top notch, the performance is astounding and the parts network is decent and expanding rapidly.

The quality of the parts and engineering of Xray brought me into touring cars.

My Xray T1 accelerated as well as any of the modded TC3's at my club...and I was still running the stock belts and gearing..not thelow ratio pulleys and low friction belts that come in the factory kit.

The belt system in the X-ray also allows for easy adjustments to your diff without any disassembly...

I wouldn't dismiss it so quickly unless you have a legitimate reason...

Evo 3 SL is a good car outdoors IMO....I did better with it than I ever did with a TC3....BTW: If Hicks reads this, the only reason I lost to a TC3 was cause Dodson was able to geaat a Final Drive of 4.7 (seriously)

BTW: Doesn't A'Lo run for Tyco now?

I think the best deal now is Pro4 for the shaft.

I've heard accessing diffs on a Pro4 is a helluva lot harder than on the Evo3's. Getting parts in SOME areas I hear is a PITA....$229 for the Evo3 at ultimatehobbies.com

Between the TC3 & the Pro4 I'd say Pro4
