Default Plastic quality on 1/10 Touring Cars

I am very happy with my T4 but I am curious if there are cars with similar or better quality plastic than Xray T4. Is Xray plastic the best out there?

There might be - but if that's the case, I haven't seen it... XRay's plastic has far exceeded my expectations over the years, and is the primary reason I've owned every model since the original T1 chassis with the pivot ball suspension.

Doesn't xray plastic have graphite in it also?

By "plastic", I am referring to the parts that are not aluminum, steel, or carbon fiber that come in a car kit.

Most plastics in touring cars are reinforces with some fiber. usually carbon based. The only parts that i have ever seen that aren't, are shock parts, that need to be able to flex a little bit.

forgot body mounts, and sometimes spacers are molded in plastics that contain no fiber reinforcing.
