Where did you reopen your track at? I thought you went under.

Our track reopened for membership only - its not as big an not for the general public due to the land not being commercially zoned. But its good enough for our little club and practice for the big races

The Yokomo BD and LCG have fairly soft chassis, so I would imagine they would be easier to get hooked up on rubber tires. I've been using mine for a few months, and it is very consistant on asphalt, and I can expect to run identical times everytime I put it on the track (unless I make changes) .I've driven the RDX, and it does seem to have a lot of steering on asphalt like Shookie said. Haven't even seen a T2 yet .

I would have to say Xray. From my experence the 05 xray worked better on carpet with rubber tires then did the Yok car. Just coudnt get the car to rotated threw the corners like the Xray. 3/10ths of a second faster then the Yok. I am sure you coudnt go wrong with any of the cars. Best to buy what your local hobby store supports and what the other racers are using.

Excellent advice.

Any kit, no matter how great it handles, will definitely be a pain if you don't have the needed parts (and tech) support in your area.
