Default MR4TC BD vs. FK 05 vs. 415 MS

which one do you think it's the king of asphalt ? Money no object.

the 415 is no longer in production so unless you can pick up a good used one or find a store that still has them instock this car is pretty well off your list.

the FK05 is a great car, have owned one & is quite easy to setup, the second production units are hitting stores so the thrust bearing issue should now be solved ( although i never had an issue with this) FK05 would be a good choice.

MR4TC-BD is also a great car, very free driveline= speed & does handle well, mind you i have only driven the car once & was not completly setup to my liking. having said this my lap times where only half a second off the top runner's ( if only i did not have issues with two servos

end of the day it's your choice

When you need rush replacing belt, replacing diff, you will find 415 is totally a nightmare and BD is just like a sweet heaven...

That's the only complain I have for 415...

They are all great cars, I had run x rays for the last 5 years and decided it's time for a change, bought the Yokomo BD and am absolutley loving this car.
So my pick would be the MR4TC-BD

Yeah? Tamiya seem to still advertise it on their site. Although I wouldn't trust their site 100%

Well I contacted tamiya a little while back, and the only word was the TRF415MS was a LE kit and it would only be in production for a certain amount of time, but the standard 415 was still going to be continued.

But now I think the MS version has been discontinued.

Be careful too, from a lot of drivers, I've heard the 415 tweaks real easy. Needs to be loosened on the bottom and reset after the smallest of hits; like hitting a dot. No way to solve this since there are so many decks and support tubes. It's a good driving car, but tweaks easy.

The SDW and FK05 are also having this nightmare problem just like 415...

If you like those car layouts, you should look at the Corally RDX. It's dialed and solid as a brick with almost no tweak.
