Smile Reviews on TRF415? What did you think?

Whats up guys, this is a thread for you "TRF415" drivers who have feedback on the car whether may it be good or bad. I'm coming to a final decision to either buy the "TBEVO4" or get the "TRF415" I race on asphault and this is the place i race at.. www.mhorrc.com So please, if you have either cars if you can just put a brief review on what you think of the car or cars. Thanks!!!

Both cars are good... I'm having success with the 415 in stock... ran the Evo IV in mod and it's not bad either(although I don't know how I ate up an input gear without hitting anything)! Right now, I think it's just a matter of preference...

Both cars are awesome, just a matter of preference really. Depends on if you like belt more or shaft more

one of my friends said that the TBEVO4 is more for tight carpet tracks, I was wondering if that was true or not... I've got a couple more days before I purchase my new cars, so if you guys have any other input please, post! Thanks a bunch

fetishdude: do you want to race TRF 415 / TB Evo 4 here:



Or here:



Off course I was kiddin

Here is the conclusion from Japan RC Magazine ( Sept. 2004 ). The driver runs 40 laps for TRF 415 vs. TB Evo 4 under the same setup.

TRF 415 made the most consistent lap times, average 12.21 sec / lap. The best lap was 12.15 sec.

TB Evo 4 made the fastest lap 12.08 sec, but it didn't make consistent lap times.

So I think it doesn't matter if you pick TB Evo 4 or TRF 415, because you made very good decision with these cars.

or just pick TRF 415 to be on the safe side ( more people own this car ).

or pick both to be on the cool side

Yeah, I would think there will be a mixture of Evo 4's and the new "refined chassis" 415.
