That Tamiya FF03 is not well suited to speed runs since it is front wheel drive. The pleasure in the Tamiya is in the build, the appearance, and the driving style.

The Sprint is aimed at people who don't like building and just like speed. The bodies are quite good looking, but the detail is not up to Tamiya's standards.

I would choose the Tamiya, the FF03 is quite a durable car

I am not a big fan of the Flux.
