how about checking threads on 415, Mi2 and Corally? RDX looks good, but it's not even out yet! It'll be hard to comment on it, unless you're the team guy with one.

i have seen the mi2 and the 415 in action and i can say that in terms of handling 415 takes the cake. however i still havent seen its durability.

get the 415!! its my .02 cents worth

although the RDX has yet to come out, it looks like it's gonna be a competitive car. but before it's out, i'd say 415 as the pick of the trio

415 is the easiest to set-up. Out of the box set-up is already superb. Just slap on a Mazda 6 body and you are set. Durability is not an issue. I really think you'll be happy with the 415.

yeah i guess so, perhaps corally's cars cannot be as easily trusted, but may be to do with parts availability and their popularity with racers too..

They're all gonna be good. Just look at the cons of each.

Mi2<-- parts availability? Looks good and my fav. of the 3
TRF415<-- strapping tape sucks...could be out dated soon as Tamiya comes out w/new cars every year. Very pretty and $$$
RDX<-- parts avail & $$$....like the design, but little room for electrics, screw on body mounts suck, too new to know of anything else.

How bout the XrayT1FK and the Losi JRXS? The Xray has a proven track record and the JRXS looks like it's got tons of potential.
Can't go wrong with any of these. Just get what your lhs can get parts for.

the MI2 is ok for asphalt, but don't try to run it on carpet without getting a better chassis. The stock one sucks for carpet.

I would of gotten the XrayT1FK but its a saddle pack.... i've already have some stick packs so they would be no good. And i'm not a team losi fan sorry... So its down to the trf415 and the Schumacher Mi2. And dasupacat, since you said the Mi2 is your fave, mind putting down why? I guess this is a battle between brand name. So if you guys have comments on the TRF415 or the Mi2 please reply. TRF415 - $350 Mi2 $299
