All of those can and have won major races, but the best design is what put them at the top.

It depends what class you are racing I feel... at least as far as both the Tamiya's go. I've used both of them and the Evo IV is a great car for stock and is perhaps a better car then the 415 in stock trim. But... the 415 is a much better car for Modified.

Really..... no one can REALLY give a justified answer as to the Top 10 of touring car chassis unless you have driven them all with equal equipment. I know the XTreme RCCar did a comparison between a bunch of shafties and a bunch of belts, but that was a while ago now and there are quite a few more chassis out there now. It made for interesting reading though.

the funny thing is everyone swears buy there favorite design, of course they would otherwise it wouldnt be there favorite, but... there the same basic designs, only minor refignments.

trf415
xray 05
rdx
mi2
mr4tc bd...all simmilar

trf414
xray 04 are mirror images

baracuda
pro4
evo iv
mr4tc...also all similar,

even the new jrx-s is similar to the old pro 3

we should ask what design/layout people prefer.

the only thing that sucks on the mi2 are the shocks and thats it . just buy some tamiya shocks and the lowerd shock towers and your set.
