both are capable chassis. In fact any top brand manufacturer is capable of the same thing. Pick the one you are more comfortable with, parts support, and setup support, etc.

Yep, parts and setup support of both cars are close, in fact these 2 makes are popular on us, but didn't their old cars before, that's why i asked it.

Anyway thanks

The 419 haven't even come out yet, so no one can tell you how it will perform.

Same for the BD7 2015 version, it will arrive on october 13th at Tonisport.
So far nobody can tell something about this car either

Both are (will be) very good cars to start racing blinky.

The 2014 and 418 are also very good for blinky.

You could save quite a bit getting the "old" chassis - new or used.

The changes being made to both cars are mostly aimed at mid drivers - though it will have some benefit for everyone.

You should also check out the shaft drive A700.

Certainly has an advantage in blinky class.

I have the TRF418 and the A700L that I'm racing in blinky class this season. The TRF418 is really nice to drive and handles really good right out of the box. I found that it was a better car to drive compared to my S411. But my S411 has been durable and never broke a single part on it during an entire season of racing. The A700L is an interesting car and that's fun to drive as well if that's a car that interests you. Otherwise I don't think you can go wrong with the BD7, TRF419 or any of the cars from the top manufacturers.

You right, but better is to wait new ones since they will come.

I am running tb evo6, unfortunately i have felt the car on the top speed very early and has got lack of pace beyond belt cars, specially on big "wave" curve tracks when run on 17.5 blinky.

I don't like Serpent ep cars, they have so many negative opinion from people around me.

Awesomatix car is expensive and hard to find parts.

Anyway, thanks for all replies.

I like the looks of the new Schumacher Mi5 Evo. There is a nice lightly used one for sale here on RCTech at this link;

Most of the top brands in recent years have not made a significant change to the performance of the cars. In an example of Tamiya, the 417 is still capable of winning. Most of the said "improvements" only changed the feel of the car, but not necessarily lower your lap times. Your battery, motor, and tire choices will affect that much greatly.

So just choose what color anodizing you want
