Xray FK05, easy to build, very strong, no tweak after some big crashes , 3 front drives in 1, diffs are kinda easy to get to, shocks are easy to build (if i can build em, you can ), smooth to drive and very easy to set-up

The SDW is a shaft car.

I had a BD once and it was really nice compared to the 415. I don't have an FK05 but tried out my friends kit. I liked the BD the best....until the JRXS came out....im in love

I'm getting desperate now...... , some says BD, some says TRF 415MS but danizlalala said there will be a new TRF coming out, and FK 05 ( my first choice ) is lame compare to those two

And I must sell one of my car ( SD or T1FK ) but which one is less superior?

What do you value most ? performance vs durability

I prefer performance and durability that's why I got the LOSI JRXS I do not mean that other kits are less but the Losi is my choice.

i think you made the whole thing up just to start a pissing match between car owners. if not then i apoligize, but please explain to me how can you own two cars and then ask ME which one you should keep, they are YOUR cars, you have driven them at YOUR track, YOU know which one suits YOUR driving style. YOU know which one has the best parts support. YOU figure it out.

The Xray because the SD has a sweet upgrade kit for it called the LCG, If you ever do deside to go back to a shaft car this upgrade makes it worth your while...

Having driven all of these cars I would have to say they each have their strengths and short comings.

Out of the 3 cars mentioned the X-Ray is the most well rounded car and is possibly the best carpet car and very good asphalt car.

The 415ms performs well on asphalt and is the best on low grip sealed asphalt. Carpet performance is horiffic and tweeks far to easily on high grip conditions.

The BD works well on asphalt and is ok on carpet so long as you don't run foams. Low grip performance is marginaly better than X-Ray but no where near the 415. The car is best suited for open circuits and tends to struggle on technical layouts.

I would recommend you go with the FK05 if you race both indoors and outdoors, or the 415 if plan to race asphalt only and will be racing on sealed surfaces.

Why is the BD not strong on tight layouts?

Yep. Shouldnt be a problem considering he could sell his FK for that much or more. It also beats paying $300 or even 400+ for the other cars listed here.
