Do belt vbelt and shaft v shaft at the start

FK-05 Vs JRX-S
TRF415 Vs RDX
Yokomo BD Vs Mi2
Evolution 4 Vs Yokomo SDW
Barracuda R3S Vs TC4
Pro4 Vs Yokomo SSG or CGM

My opinion would be
JRX-S
TRF415
Mi2
Evo 4
TC4
Pro4

That way people would know which car is best for them...
Here are my answers
1) PRO 4
2) RDX
3) YOK BD
4) YOK BD
5) TC4
6) XXXS G+

But then again there goes the opinion-O-meter again...

How astute of the benchracers to state that the manufacturer who purchases the most advertising/passes out the most SWAG wins. Do you guys know who won the last XRC TC shootout? The X-RAY T-1FK. If you flip through the pages of any XRC mag, you'll see more AE, HPI, and LOSI ads than anything else. So if your theory is correct, wouldn't one of those have won the shootout? Perhaps not all RC mags are as objective as XRC, but their shootout was as fair and conclusive in terms of format as one could imagine, and the car that won, had the best fit and finish, and turned the fastest and most consistent laptimes of the bunch.

But you guys are right. The FK was a total pile. Juraj Hudy musta given DerekB a fortune.

Have you ever thought that a lot of the 415 winning has to do with Rheinard? That guy could wheel any of the aforementioned cars just as fast.

What a lot of people don't get is that there are a few cars that are pretty much equal on a given surface. On carpet, the top 3 cars are the RDX, FK05, and JRXS in no given order. All three are capable of winning a national race. It comes down to if the drivers can get the most out of their car to go and win. That part isn't determined by the car, as they are all very adjustable. Yes, some cars are easier to get fast, but the top guys all know how to do it.

As far as asphalt racing goes...well there's so many capable cars that I won't list them all. But the three above are just as competitive on asphalt, as well.
