Default team losi jrx-s or xray T1fk05

I am a off road racer but I would like to get into racing on road and I am wondering what car should I get? the team los jrx-s or xray t1fk05? I race all of the team losi of road cars and I like the looks of the team losi jrx-s and the xray T1fk05 but I just wondering wich one do you guys think will be the better car?

Well 1st I dont think the JRX-S is released yet. It comes down to preference, also do you have a local dealer that sells the parts for both or just one

Both will be great cars....

the suspension system for the FK05 is a carryover from the existing FK, so parts are already circulating...

Losi has a large dealer support network so parts should be in decent supply not toolong after release...

it's really a matter of personal preference..

I'm a huge Xray fan. I trust and believein the quality of the design and the parts quality is top notch....

The battery alignmetn on the Losi is innovative with it being located along the center line but it looks like it restricts the use of fasteners and forces you to solder around the belts ...personally...I'm too clumsy for that...

Ultimately the decision is up to you..but both are impressive looking cars

you could try and source a T1FK regular for maybe less and it would stioll be a very recent car.

you already have the tools for the losi and know how they run, It would be much cheaper for you to stay with the losi.

neither car is released yet.

If X-ray parts are avalible to you more then losi, then that might be somthing to consider.

You can't use that logic to determine anything...and making a statement like that will only bring the Losi faithful out to start a flame war....

I'm personally an Xray fan, but Losi had cars in the A at the worlds....and Xray had to settle with 6!!!! in the B....(and I still say look at the qualifying and finals times and that was no big deal lol)

The losi car is a fresh take on things, but thee are several minor design issues with the car that would keep me from buying it...

I have my FK05 on order...hopefully I got inearly enough to snag one out of the first shipment

It WILL be interesting to see which car makes it to market first....the Losi by rights SHOULD.....but there have been several.....delays....

it is a cool thread. Oddly, here I am waiting for a JRXS-R. Well, the longer I wait, the more interesting the Euro T2 007 is looking. Should I start my own thread? Help me out friends...X or Losi?

Well it depends on wich one u deside to get. I have herd a lot of good thing s about the xray cars and not much about the losi on road cars, I do not know why I have not herd a lot of things about the losi on road cars I think it should be a great car. There is a thread here about the knew losi on road car coming out and there should be one of the xray car here too, u can ask them there or u can start ur own thread too. I whent with Hot Bodies Cyclone car beacuse stormerhobbies and it on sale for $200 I could not pas that up!
