Ive got good support for Associated at my LHS/Track.

Ive looked at the Sakura XI, but it seems hard to find support in the states for it. Dont want to pay 30 bucks shipping each time I need a part.

Unless ya know of a US distributor for Sakura XI stuff...

Wonder what the new Tamiya will be called, the 418x...or just 418?

I'm not being bias here but I have driven both car. I race TC6/TC6.1 for almost 2 years and only driven my Tamiya 417X for about 1 month. I can tell you hands down 417X it's night a day thats why Tamiya cost $$$$.....

better pull out of the corners

pretty much all other cars come with a front spool.
