New Car?

I am thinking of buying a new car as I can't get my Pro4 to work well for me .... so the choice is either.

Tamiya TRF415 MS or to wait for the new X-Ray T1FK05 .... Any solid advice on what car is going to be better?

I'd say get the Xray at least we know a few team drivers here who can help with setups and they all race near by. Its cheap too.

THe 415 is a fab car but comments from all owners I know all told me the car does wear quickly and you need to keep renewing all the ball joints etc... spares in UK is for the 415 can be potentially a problem.

Thanks Rem..... I had a gutsful of the Pro4 I just can't seem to get the setup on it right .... when I first got it .. car was ballistic but the longer I had it the car has got worse... with a spool at front it should not spin out like it was doin .. anyway a change is like a holiday ... so new car here I come ....!!! Think I'll put in pre-order at speedtech ..!

Cost of X-ray from speedtech will be way cheaper than UK ... here car will be 320+++ ... I would prefer buy UK but cost is too much.

why not wait for new hpi or yoko belted cars?

The xray is tight though hard to beat that kind of quality

Yeah Scott the new Xray is sub 260, and personally I dont think any other cars quality can beat it. Its available from next month.

Re speedo I am waiting for the MX from MRT... but for you I dont think you need a water proof one since you dissolve in water or so it seems!
