Default PRO4 or JRX-S

I am after a new chassis I am wondering which one to go for?
They both seem to be great cars can I have some of your thoughts.

Ask a hundred people and you'll get a hundred different answers. They're both highly capable, although the JRX-S is a little less proven since it is so new. I'm not saying it won't be good, just that it needs time to prove its worth. I personally like belt cars.

The Evo and the Xray are both very nice cars,I do think the Evo is way over priced($400 +)The Pro4 is just as fast(faster IMHO.. )for less money. The Xray is an older design(yes..it's based on the serpent of 00)I would look for a newer design to come from Xray in the near future.. In the end you cant really go wrong with any of the newer TC's on the market.If it was my money I would wait and get the new Losi when it comes out.

The first Xray T1 was based on the experience from the Corally C4, i think hudy was the distrubitor for corally in slovakia a couple of years ago..

Here is a simple point. With all the racers in the world chapionship and the new JRXS also racing along side the TRF415, Pro 4, MR4TC-SDW, T1 and the JRSX I would say that between the two you are thinking of buying, the JRXS's got one into the top ten, the Pro 4 got 4 in the top ten at the worlds. And Xray got none. I think they need help. I like that the price just dropped on the TRF415 and we should see more of these winning. I personaly like Yokomo mainly becasue they handle great always hold a tune and has never given me much trouble. I almost got a Pro 4 but I have had bad experiences with HPI. I think that you should wait till the JRXS has been more race proven before making it THE CHoice. Wait a little longer unless you are desprate for a new ride.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

Try TWO JRX-S and THREE Pro4....

And I wouldn't purely go on the Worlds results. Best thing to do is go to your local track (s) and see what people are running. Are there team drivers there who could help you out with either car? That was the deciding factor why I chose the XXX-S when it came out and will go for the JRX-S next year.

Just ask yourself if you like the purple anodized or the hard anodized look?!

Xray had 6 cars in the top 20 though...and the results of the worlds were decided by hundredths of a second....

Are you sure that driver input and proper setup for the track conditions didn't have anything to do with the results?

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??

Seriously though...look for the parts support at your local track. What are other racers running...there is somethign to be said for having the latest and greatest (JRXS) but it's also nice to have other racers there that can help you out with a part or a setup tip when you're struggling

That's pretty much the deciding factor for purchasing a car these days.

unfortunatly with the caliber of drivers at the worlds, any of them could have run any car, and most liley ended up in the same position.. im sure all of the cars were diald.. it just came down to who the better wheel was that week...
