You can't go wrong with either car. I like the Mi2.

.... both car will only b as good ...as the driver .......is ....!!

.... in good hands both car will b very competitive ...... so i'd say ..
there really isn't any point in askin which is better .....
because ...it's just matter of opinion an biased answer ...

an yes im biased towards a 415 ....lol


so i'd say go for the car that catches your eyes ....the most ...
the one that u think that looks the best .....

but yeah the 415 is awesome .....

I would have to go with the MI2. I have had the car since it was first released, and have never been happier with a car. The tranny is super free, the car has plenty of adjustments, and great aftermarket support. I also truly believe that the customer service and advice from Schumacher USA is the best I have ever seen. I haven't had much interaction with Tamiya, but I have with some other manufacturers and been dissapointed.

The 415 is the better car,but it also costs more.I dont think it's $80+ dollars better.The Mi2's shocks do really suck.. thats about the only "knock" on the car..other than it's British..

Yeah the Tamiya might be more expensive, but the Mi2 needs some work to perform at its best. The shocks on the Mi2 suck and a lot of team guys run carpet rear shock towers all around. There goes the cost difference. Another thing to consider, if you live in Southern Cal and you own a Tamiya, you'll get to practise at their track.

alot of team guys
True... but not every driver needs them... i dont, my bro doesn't the other 2guys that use the Mi2 @ my club dont...

No car will ever come out of the box bang on prefect ! The Process is called R&D (Research & Development) or making the car even better than it is. I think that Schumacher are the best company for doing this ! They dont do Factory Kits they do the odd bits so it cheaper for the drivers.

So when u say that the Mi2 needs more work on it i guess 'technically' u are correct, the likes of Tamiya just put out a new kit. It depends how u define more work really... building a new car (Tamiya) Or getting new shock towers, alloy hubs, around 30 each.


Thats my 2p's worth
