I had a 415msxx mre and it was the best car i had driven and owned, is the 417 not a good handling car, compared to the xray

People say the Xrays setup window is alot wider than the Tamiya's. I had a 416 and couldn't get that car to work for me. I went to the T3'11 and car worked better than the 416, but still didnt agree with me. Then I bought a second hand T3'10 with an Exotek chassis. Best sedan ive ever driven hands down. Opinions will vary. Go with what makes you happy

The 417 is a much more neutral car than the 415. Out of the box its quite forgiving, obviously once you tune it to become more precise it will be more on an edge, but that's true with any car if you want it to be fast.

Both Xrays and Tamiyas are quick (As are all top end cars) The Xrays I have had in the past were also great cars, but I always went back to Tamiya as they seem to fit my driving style.
