Default TOP Photon Ex or Xray T4

Has anyone done a comparison between the two and understands the advantages of either platform?

The Xray T4 is a good all round car that can be made docile and easy to drive or more direct when necessary.

The Top is crap

We have a former UK national winner who occasionally races at our club. Sometimes he'll drive my car for a bit in practice and usually beats my laps by a few tenths.
He had a Top for a few weeks and not once did he manage to beat my fastest laps, and only out qualified me once.
He hated it and got rid of it after a few weeks.

Both are great in the right hands, but X-ray wins my vote. Durable and fast not to mention the amazing quality.
