I will be racing both, outdoor during the summer, indoor during the winter. Is the 415 not very good on high grip surfaces?

Absolutely not, the std 415 is great on any surfaces, on either rubber or foam, and you don't need to upgrade it to the LW suspension for it to be good.

You won't be able to upgrade it to the MSX with the stock suspension on it though, although I'm not really sure why you wouldn't. Sounds a good deal you're getting, if you're confident the car's in good condition, i don't see why not get it.

The guy at me LHS is suggesting that i buy a atlas ym34 that he has. I must admit it looks quite impressive, i think the only non aluminum or carbon part is the lower a-arm. the drive train seem very smooth and the suspension is extremely smooth. he said that that particluar car was around $600cdn new and he would sell it to me for around $300cdn, just the rolling chassis, it is last years model. It look brand new, not a scratch to be found on it.

I do not know much about atlas cars, and it is very hard to find info on them. He siad they are big in Japan but very hard to find over here. Does anyone know anything abou them. He has raced Atlas's for the past 4 years, and recently placed 7th at a big race out our way, against 70 competitors.

Get a car that your LHS is carrying.If he's carrying a lot of atlas parts then go for it.

I'm driving a 415MS though...No complains.The car is good...!

Hey, its a world champ car btw!!
