Kewdawg,

I agree, there will be exceptions to what I said, but that's why it was "IMHO" ....I understand what your saying though...

My experiences with Xray's at my local track has been that they seem tougher than most. And its a big reason why i'm switching to the Xray....

Really? How about the 415--it's as tough as the EVO3 without the gear problems.

Don't get me wrong, I was considering the 415. In fact, I was going to buy Hebiki's 415, but I decided that I like the balance that the Xray and my 414M2 have. Its just personal preference for me, I like the way the saddles balance the car.

Oh wise buddha. You have spoken wisely again.

Now back to the topic, which one would he choose?
Well, lets just say XRAY T1 FK is a tank and HPI Pro 4 ... isnt ...

I'd agree with that. That saddle pack is also the reason why I did not get a XRay--too lazy to convert my packs and you cannot use a plug...

Well, it seems like if he hasn't by now, he should just give up. As the hundred plus replies have clarified, both are great cars, he just needs to pick now. If that means going to his local track and trying out both on the track to see which feels the best, then so be it. If both feel good, get the cheapest one, save yourself a couple of bucks. The cars finished 2,3 at the Reedy Race....they're both awesome....it's up to you to decide which one's better for you now.
