the factory kit is a very user friendly car, everything on it (except for the shocks) is easy to build, change setup etc.

in the end the best way to choose would be which colour do you like best? Blue or Silver?

i have to kinda disagree with you on the Xray shocks, i just got an FK and the shocks were pretty easy to build just the turnbuckle is a pain to put on. But overall the Xray Fk Kicks! I dont have a TRF so i wouldnt know.

Hi b1a,

I have driven and owns both cars. As for performance, they are almost identical with about the same suspension geometry. Here is some plus minuses,

TRF415,
- parts support happened to be easier in all countries?
- lower CG as the drive trains are placed lower.
- A arms are from very strong material.
- more expensive.
- Rear diff outdrives comes from regular plastic only, delrin is an option (including is tungsteen thrust bearing).


T1FK,
- Need to get used to in building shocks, but once you get it, you will know that Serpent type shock is the best.
- Does not comes with aluminum shock body
- Does not comes with stabilizer (but looks like they dont need it with this car).
- 48p gears or you will need kimbrough if you prefer 64p as other brand does not have the same PCD holes.
- Very very very lightweight
- Much more precise in fitments (I meant PERFECT fitment)
- Arms holder is bold on bulkhead so it wont moved on impact as it is with TRF.
- Low pulley ratio of 1.77 will gives you very smooth drive trains resulting in the much much longer life of all ball bearings (thus less maintanance).
- Rear diff is covered and trully externally adjustable which will makes your live much easier.
