Default 007 can it still be competitive?

Thinking of buying a 007 xray to get back into TC used to have a old AE tc3 back in the day but have been out of rc for awhile. Wanted to get a older one so i could bash it up the rest of this season getting used to driving one. so my question is how much will i be giving away car wise driving a older xray over the brand new cars can i still be competitve on race day? the track is a pretty large parking lot track here is a pic of the car

For doing what you said the car is perfect.. it will still be totally competitive.. its more about the driver then the car.. might be an idea though to get a car that other people have at your local track to help you with setup etc.. but then you will probably find guys running the T2 at your track..

up until about three months ago i ran one at my local track which is a tight/ technical indoor asphalt track and i placed it in the top three in 17.5 stock sedan every week up against 009's and t3's when they came out. Xray t2 no matter what year 006/7/8/9, they are all still competitive with the newest tc's on the market. but to simplify the answer... Yes, very much so!!

What are the differences between the 007/008 and 009? Were the the changes big or cosmetic?

I have had three years ago but I did not like, too nervous and insensitive to adjustments, destroys the blade, too much play in uniball and suspensions, shock absorbers type toy.
