very true jay and Windsorguy99 shafts put the power to the ground in a very fast and efficient manner better then belts, that is the point of a shaft, more torque and quicker throttle response

I have a TC4, JRX and FK05. I like the JRX better than the TC4. Not because its faster but because of the quality of the JRX. The shocks are too sweet. You don't have to buy graphite chassis, arms etc. like you do on the tc4. Now to add the Xray to the mix. The Xray is so smoooooooth. I get a woody thinking about.
The JRX transitions like a [email protected]#$$#@&.
The TC4 accelerates Hard and is extremely fast.

Right now If I could only have 1 it would be the XRay.

little more time with the losi and might change my mind. car has great potential.

Very true but the down-side to that whole equation is wicked torque-steer ... -JB

In my most humble opinion I don't care how good it's performing, I wouldn't get it for this fact, just like the TC3/TC4(even though the BMI chassis for them looks good). As far as shaft cars are concerned, I just built a Pro4 and compared to my other shafts plus a few others from other people, it has by far the smoothest drivetrain. I can't comment on the belts since I'm still making up my mind on the Yoke BD, '05 XRAY, or RDX. -JB
The first half of this post has to be one of the dumber things I have read on this board. In my opinion, the best looking car is the one standing highest on the podium.

Having run both, i like the losi much better for 19 turn and mod.

I will have to say that the tc4 just has soo much more power to the ground.

For stock only, id go tc4, for mod or 19, and maybe even stock, losi.

If you're the type of guy that bases all of your purchasing decisions on what you stated above, I'm afraid my non-astute friend, you're an IDIOT... BTW, read the SIG -JB

this has to be one the dumbest posts I've ever read on this board, I've never seen a car standing on the podium no matter how high or low. think about it before you get mad,

i've seen drivers standing on the podium HOLDING the cars.

are you talking about carpet or asphalt racing? because out here on the asphalt you rarely find an S/D from any company. no tc3 or 4 no pro 4 and almost never any yokomos. we see rare and hard to get belt drive cars way more often than any shafties, in any class from stock,19 turn, and mod. the way i see it is, if the shaft drives were better , there would be more at the track more often and they would also win more often. if shaft was really better then why is yokomo going BACK to belt drive?

its matters where you are and around here you see a big mix of shafts and belts. but you also see more belts because there are a few more belt cars availble. and yok is using both they are not going BACK Hara is not going BACK to belt with the cyclone, its just because some people like a shaft over a belt and some people like belts over shaft so as a company its a better idea to make one of both cars because then you get both sides and i dont know what your talking about that you dont see shafts on pavement because tc3s back in the day wont a crap load of our door races and the pro4 is one of the best cars on asphat.

but like i have been saying the whole time in this thread, you really cant say one car is better then another, it all matters on the driver if you look at racing, kinwald could win with a shaft or belt and same goes for hara. all the cars out there are fast it just matters on what you like as a driver for as to what car you drive.

just proving my point, a tc3 can still win, you just ahve to have the right driver behind it and showing that asphalt and shafts to mix because a 5 year old shaft car is still a top car on the pavement. chris drove a tc3 for 4 years because personally he couldnt find a car he liked more untill the pro4 but he still drives his old tc3 all the time. so like i said once again, its what you like as a driver and the driver that makes it fast, not the most expensive or the newest. find the car you personaly like the best to dirve and work on and that is your car
