Default The Best Shaft? Pro-4, TC-4, or Yok SD? Opinions Requested!

Who's the best out of the box?
Who's the best after modifications?
Which one is the most expensive to modify, and the least?

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

They're all good and if you ask ten people, I'm sure you get just as many answers. I have a personal preference, but that's just it; it's personal preference. Any one of those cars are highly capable, although each has there own characteristics that appeal to different people.

Pro 4 is the best for the stock class. It is easy to use and responsive to tuning imput. Mod would probably be the Yok SD. It has many more tuning parts and options than the TC4.

Best out of the box is the pro4 most def. You barely have to make any mods to it. And if you do it will be worth it since the car is already good stcok. This car is the least expensive car to mod too, becuase you really don't need to, except the upper deck mod which requires no money, just a drill. Yokomo Sd is good as well, but you might have to end up buying new parts for it(Brokomos). And the TC4 will probaly also one of the most fun cars to mod since there is a variety of selection to choose for it. I'd say go with the pro4 or the tc4. (Pro4 might end up saving you more money in the long run.)

Default Best Shaft Car

HANDS DOWN PRO-4

LIGHTEST, BEST VALUE, MOST FREE

I am talking from experience I am a non sponsored driver that could choose any car I wanted and this is the only car that could allow me to keep up or beat factory drivers especially on a budget. If you want personal preference keep reading these posts if you want to win buy a pro-4. One last note I would somewhat agree with the fact it is a little tough to find the setup if your running pro-Mod ex. 6-7 turn so it may not be the best mod car for ease of use but for stock or 19 best shaft hands down

Another vote for the Pro 4. It's by far the most free 4wd drivetrain I've ever spun with my own hands. And it doesn't take hours and hours of massaging the diff cases to free it up either. *cough*...tc3...*cough* Ahem. scuse' me.
