This car already exists, it's called a PRO 4. I have run X-Ray, and now run the Pro 4. I switched simply because no X-Rays were available. After building the kit, and racing with it for a few months I find it to be as good in all areas (now that the c-hub issue has been addressed) as my X-rays were.

You are right, the car does exist, it's called an EVO 4. I drove Xray's exclusively for three years until about a month ago when I switched to Tamiya, and I can honestly say that the parts quality and fit is as good or better than Xray. And the best part is that Tamiya's just flat out work better.

I feel sorry for you driving a tamiya but I suppose finishing at the bottom of the B's does not seem to affect you

You have to remember 1 thing xray rules

Hey Safebuttsx- If you ever have the balls to come to Southern California, send me a message so we can get together and race. I'll show you what a Tamiya can do to a POS Xray.

Too bad Tamiya doesn't even bother to show up to the US CARPET CHAMPS or the SNOWBIRDS

Man, thanks for the good laugh! You sound like Vin Diesel in Fast and Furious (Stupid really) of the r/c car world. Let's race for pink slip for your little r/c cars. Oh man, too funny, thanks for the good laugh.
