Default Xray T4 or Capricorn lab TE01

So which one? I know and seen Xray's durability and performance but, just can't take my eyes of the capricorn. The track is semi prepped. I would say medium grip and running it for 17.5 blinky with the occasional 10.5. As for parts, I mainly buy from Ebay or TQ. I just need a bada$$ alternative for my TA06. Thanks for your opinion

Oh yeah, I prefer the driver to adapt to the chassis rather the other way around. I think I said it right

you are definitely right, the TE01 is hard to take your eyes off. i never considered the car only because theres no support for capricorn anywhere close to me. i was considering the Lab co2 or NT1 last year. yes capricon is a pretty car in every class but xray is second to none IMHO

Ok I see where your coming from. In that case, what parts would you recommend besides arms hubs and knuckles?

Default TE-01

Hi

I would say th Capricorn TE-01.

I got my hands on the first one in denmark , and WHAU , what a car. I have raced i both on carpet and on asphalt. In 17,5 blinky and modified , super smooth to drive , plenty of steering. I have now use the car in 4-5 month , and only broke a ball joint !!! None wear , everything fits perfect together when you build it. The xray have I seen being quick out of the box , but after 20-30 charge times suddently drop by 2-3/10 , no reason. Have heard that the team drivers then change the chassis.

Just my opinion , I would take the TE-01 any day of the week all year long

Do you have anymore input on the reason they changed the chassis?
The only reason I can think of is that the chassis IMO is a little too flexible but others will say no. They probably changed to a stiffer one. And you say team drivers changed them, if I was a team driver I'd probably change the chassis after that many charges too.
As far as breaking parts I haven't broken anything and I still crash more than others. I would've loved to pick up the TE01 but to have to order from overseas and paying those shipping fees, and having a bad experience with not receiving a $200 order I'll order from someplace in the US or walk in to most shops and leave with what I'm looking for.
Is there a Capricorn team driver in the ETS?
I'd like to see what that car can do in the hands of a pro driver

Oh yea as far as getting slower after 20-30 runs, I haven't seen that as of yet.
I race with a few associated sponsored drivers and Xray drivers too. The guy that runs for associated just gets faster and faster every week and the xray guy is either right on his ass or in front, at their level it just comes down to who had a better day and who got it right for the track conditions, and they are both national champions. It's not the car getting slower cause I get faster every week too
