Default HELP! Xray T4 or Yokomo BD7

Ok, so i'm stuck in a dilemma and need some guidance. I was dead set on picking up an Xray t4 but then a incredible deal on a db7 came up and now i'm stuck. None of my local shops maintain either one brands parts but that's not to big of an issue since I'll just order everything else. Can some folks chime in with some recommendations on these two TCs?

I've been driving the BD7 all winter now and must say that it is the best on road car i have ever driven. Spent all winter driving it on carpet and took it out for the first test on asphalt last week. I was very impressed. Best car on the market today in my opinion. Reliable, fast and easy to set up.

BD7 for sure. Xray is good too, but the BD7 has that extra speed when you want it without biting you back.

You can never go wrong with Xray especially the T4. I posted the same thing few months back and I chose the T4 and I'm more than happy.
Another guy went BD7 and broke his car 3x more than I did, I replaced 0 parts and I crash since I'm not the best driver, but not that bad

This is such a hard decision, the deal on this yoko is pretty good, however, my problem is parts support. I looked on Amain and notice a lot of backorders.

If you have to ask you should go with the T4. More main stream help. Where is the deal on the BD7?....I will pick that up for you.

There's always one smart ass in the crowd.

On a second note, I'll probably grab them both and see which one I prefer.
