MSX,Cyclone,Yokomo BD i have seen the msx i there is not much very different from the cyclone the basic layout is the same only the msx is dar more exspensive i don't now nothing about the Yokomo BD we don't race much yokomo in holland. the cyclone is also very easy to work on 4 en 2 little tiny screws and the lay shaft comes out and 4 screws voor de front & rear diff so it's down to the where you can get the most parts and just wich do you find the most practical en pritty

greetings hollowman

next thing youll be trying to tell me brushless emaxxs are not supposed to be drifted...

any car + skateboard park = fun.

brushless touring car and a table top gets me grinning from ear to ear.

the breakages dont tho... but thats to be expected.

They all have the basic same layout. Be different. Try a Losi Jrxs, You won't regret it.

I Would agree that many of the belt drive cars are essentially the same. Many of the cars have pros and cons. The Yokomo DB is the best quality car interms of machining and as such represents (personal opinion) the best value for money. Fantastic bulk heads!

Cyclone is expensive for what it is, but has the best suspension package and probably is the fastest car around each track with little setup variation.

My ranking of cars (for what its worth)
1) Cyclone
2) Yokomo BD #1 for quality
=) 415MS (x)
4) RDX
5) Mi2 (requires hopups and loads of spares)
6) JRXS (not for low grip tracks)
7) xray (runs hot and cold - requires too much chassis set variations)

many will argue with this,which shows how close each car actually is.
