There all good cars, I personally run the Yokomo BD. It's a great car and the parts aren't very expensive.

OK I'm slightly biased but the Xray FK05 really is the best car I have ever driven. Easy to work on and really strong (the wooden pole I hit at the end of the straight on sunday will agree with me) Very tuneable - it's already won on carpet and is very strong on tarmac too.

I also hear good things about the Yokomo BD but cant comment as I havent owned one.

Not so sure about the JRXS though.......mmm

be sure you can get parts easily for the car you choose. Waiting a few weeks for parts to come in from an online order is no fun.

I can speak for the xray as i have an older version. The thing i really like about it is that i dont have to buy extra parts to get the kickup/antisquat/antidive whatever, that i want. just adjust some screws and im there. The car is pretty much fully hopped up out of the box.

I agree this year of touring cars is almost revoltuionary.

No one here has driven a cyclone so no point of asking about the cyclone just yet. But the pro4 05' edition looks like a well anticipated car for hpi fans.

You cannot possibly discuss the best belt drive cars out there without discussing the RDX...otherwise your list is way incomplete!!

when i saw the jrx-s i noticed how WIDE it was. this car is very different than most cars of 2005. Any jrx-s drivers here notice anything unique do to the motor drivetrain layout?

The JRXS is real smooth and real easy to drive. It feels alot like an RDX which is a bad a$$ car too.

JRXS for me, parts will be on the shelf, easy to work on, less expensive, the #1 reason: IT'S DIFFRENT THAN ALL THE OTHER 415 KNOCK OFFS!!

My $.02 worth, good luck!
