HPI used to be a good brand, and with good support here in Denmark. But the last couple of years, HPI support is extremely bad (at least for electric). HPI has to prove at least 2 years good and continous support here, before I would even consider a HPI car.

First: I like you're going for a belt car.

From what I've seen in our club:

Yokomo breaks A-arms very often.

Havent seen the 415 in action, but the EvoIII is in our club, in several implementations. Have serious problems with the drivetrain. Somewhat dissapointing, considering Tamiyas long shaft experience. Of course the 415 is different. But to me it seems like they release cars, which is not matured enough. Once I considered the older generations of the TRF. Dropped it due to not enough adjustment options.

Which leads me to two main things for me: The car need to be matured and have good adjustment options. It's all about finishing and corner speed, corner speed, corner speed.

So I'm with Andesetin: XRay or Schuie.

Oh, and about only Teemu can drive the MI2 fast: Well, it proves the car can be fast. Besides, he's not the only one. Seaball (on this board) is doing what everybody says cant be done: He's going very, very fast with an MI2 on foams/carpet.

It's a matter of knowing the car, and what you're doing.
