You use the WORLD to help decide which car to buy is your BIGGEST mistake..............because we are no TEAM DRIVER, we don't like near to one, nor having the support like one...so, if you say buy a 415 MS is because it is a world champ car, then good luck

I am sure all of them are the GOOD CAR........try keep that under your budget, part support, and your local buddy support.....

Any car DOES NOT come with a perfect setup that is RTR (race that is)....you have to ask around and find the best setup for you.

if all you're going to base iton is the results then forget those two choices...get the Evo IV from Tamiya..after all..it is the world champion isn't it??
No it isn't. The 415 was the chassis of choice for Marc. Surikarn and Jun ran the Evo 4 though.

All cars are equally fast, just some might take some massaging to get there.

from what i have seen at the track and from listening to the drivers, the pro 4 is basically a tc3 on steroids, with tc3 setups very similar to the pro 4. I think thats a good thing as i am also in the looking for a new chassis soon.

LOL I find it funny the person that started this thread, hasn't really responded to it yet.

Probably just sitting back laughing that he got everyone arguing

by the way the 415 won the worlds, not the evo 4

1 415
1 evo 4
3 pro 4
2 losi jrxs
1 tc4
2 yokomo's

subtract an hpi and add a tc4 and it's a crap shoot.

3 belt 7 shafts yes but the belt one, and if you count the top 20

I think at least half were belts correct???

Sorry...I got the two Tamiya cars mixed up...must have been from the back-and-forth regarding Rheinard's car on the worlds thread...

The point still remains the same.....the results at the worlds don't mean all that much to us mere mortals
