Yeah, you really didn't get it, he's not comparing the cars to the 414 at all.

If he had actually bothered to read the article before commenting about its content then he would have recognised the typo by the original poster and not jumped to the wrong conclusion.

Just like your signature says in this case

Default Nice article!

mark,
I've read part 1 of your article and it was well written. I didn't realize the big weight difference between the two. Nice thing about being underweight is that you can add the weight wherever you like and as low as possible. Some club or non-sanctioned races don't bother with the weight limits so it would be nice if you can test it before and after you equalized the weight.

Also, are you planning on putting total price of the cars w/ options. Like for the T1, you spent add'l for the the fr and rr sway bars, that ought to take the price up closer to the 415. It will help a potential buyer to see the "hidden"costs.

Just my .02

Thanks for the compliment - my english is a bit rusty these days, though *cough*

As a couple of people have now asked about testing with and without weight ballast, I will do both.
I'll mention the price in the conclusions of my next review, but I can also let you know now that the Xray turns out to be slightly more expensive than the 415, due to having to buy the anti-roll bars. But we're only talking about 10-20, so it is negligable.

I'm looking forward to doing the testing to see how they perform and react to setup changes. It'll take a while still, as I've got other commitments to take care of first.

Cheers, Mark.

I did not jump to any conclusion. I simply commented that it started with a 414. I am not interested in the 414 so why should I read the article and then discover it was a typo?

You have assumed that I'm comparing "it" to a 414 - ergo conclusion.

Never mind, seems most understood that it was a typo.
