Hej Jan

Hvad er problemet med alder?

Sædvanligvis deltager jeg ikke i denne type thrads, men siden du er dansk og jeg formentlig kan spare dig for en pæn pose penge...

Nå, men der er jo ikke så mange der forstår dansk, så...

Hey Jan

What's the problem with age?

I see it as an advantage: First batches problems solved, lot's of experience to re-use. As a bonus, it's way more fun to beat all the new hyper-models, with an older model. Besides, try calling Ivan's Hobby, you might be able to get a very attractive price. Just say you're in doubt between an Tamiya, or whatever, and the Schuie. Say Thomas recommended you call Ivan.

If you have problems with upcoming models, definately dont consider a Tamiya or XRay. They make new models as often as most people changes their underwear. Stay cool

Out of the choice of cars you've posted, I would say get a 415MS... BUT the biggest problem with them now is that the MS kit has been discontinued, so kit avalability is pretty limited.
Other than that, I would say the X-Ray. I have actually driven a FK05 back to back with my 415, and they are very similar to drive (in fact the Xray felt more stable... but understeered more into the turns). And that would be my personal second choice of car.

The cyclone looks a good bet, and the HPI/Hot Bodies suspension is very similar in geometry to that of a 415... why else to the hpi hubs fit . The BD looks ok... I've personally had issues with Yok's in the past, so I'm not too keen on them.

RDX... hmm, quick car, as long as you stay away from the boards (only j/king), have hardly seen one, so can't really comment on it.
With the JRXS, looks good on carpet, but i have large reservations about it on bumpy asphalet.

Anyway, thats just my veiws

BTW, one of the Schumacher factory guys in another thread alluded to a new TC coming soon. Might want to wait and see what Schumacher has up their sleaves.

We know Shcumacher will come out with new car within 6 months. Judging by experience, Tamiya will too. And Yokomo. And X-ray. And Corally. Maybe not HotBodies but the Cyclone is hardly on the market yet.

Buy the one you like. I'd buy the X-Ray myself. Brilliant fit and finish of parts, very solid, and not too expensive.
MI2 is my second choice, it's solid car (except for couple of things that you'll replace with aftermarket parts) and dirt cheap (compared to the others ).

Being biased, I'd go for the 415 MS/X. You don't have a world championship by doing nothing. Plus at least in my country there are plenty of hobby shops that sell parts for Tamiyas.

The RDX I am really impressed with. The first place runner in the Mod class at my track races one, and they look very nice. But most of the parts, if not all, he has to get from overseas.

Even though I run an Xray, I would say go Corally RDX. The top of every class in my area runs it basically and it's performance continues to impress me every time I watch one run. There may be one on my pit bench in the near future...

I'd say go for the Pro4 Hara Edition. Absolutely no hopups are needed or even worthy of this car. And it's much easier to work on than any belt drive car.
