Default tamiya 416 clone

I have seen a few trf 416 clone cars for sale on ebay, there cost around $200 shipped. My question is has anyone had or seen any of these cars. I am considering buying one since its in my budget. Just look for some input.

My advice? Stay away from it. It will cost more to get it to run properly and make it reliable.

You will definitely be better off getting a used original kit.

Really doesn't need too much to get it to run well.

Just rebuild and shim the kit. Also replace the rear diff with a Tamiya one and they're good to go.

I recently ran one in a team enduro, (161 laps with a 540 silvercan) and we won up against Xray's, Schumachers, Kyosho's, etc.

Overall they're not as bad as you guys who've never used one make them out to be.

Buuuuuut, I'd never buy one to use as a proper race car.

well after reading the thead that was post back a few posts I think i'll stay away from the clone. The TC6 and the Photon seem to be ok on price.

Default going with the better parts

Yes,,,I found better thread started here. Quite interesting. I spent on Japanese spares and realized that it is still better option for utilized used spares parts. General Japanese spares support for Nissan, Toyota, Honda spare parts…..etc..
