Default T3 2012 vs Mi4cxl

I am looking for educated opinions on which one is better in quality, durability, ease of tuning and which one is overall the better choice !!

Durability and quality I would say the X-ray. Performance? Depends on the track, high grip: X-ray is probably slightly quicker, low grip: mi4 everyday of the week.

people run both 2012 and CX (long upper deck) in my local track. Schumarcher seems to hold slightly better in durability. only slightly.

Xray all the way for me, ive had an MI4 CX which was ok but since switching to T3 2012 Iam going quicker plus its tough as old boots. The new 2mm chassis for the xray will solve any problems on low grip tracks Im sure.

agreed...
if track conditions are high grip..the Xray
if its loose...the schui will excel
i am finding the Schui parts quality is up there.... on par with Xray...especially with the latest cvds
cant go wrong either way.

i had a 2011 xray, and every shouie since the mi3 except the cxl, either can be tuned to do whatever you what. IN MY OPINION, however with pretty much the same settings, the xray was smoother to drive while the shouie was more on edge. but that was for ME on MY track. your results may vary.
