There is no such thing as best car objectively. What matters is what you like and the support you will get.

FW series are shaft driven car and the V-One series are belt driven.
If you want to know how the 415 compares to the XRAY T1 Factory, go to 3hobby.com and read the article by MarkP. He is building both kits simultaneously and comparing build, quality, performance etc.

You won't see too much about the Evo4, I think its because Mark felt the Evo III was a let down for him.

Thanks Jeffrey, does it use 4mm screws for mounting the engine?

Thanks, but I was really asking a rhetorical question to demonstrate a point--that there is no objetive answer to "what is the best car" type question.

Nope, it still uses 3mm screws for the engine. However, since it's fairly easy to adjust the engine position on the mounting block, I don't see why you couldn't just drill the holes out to 4mm if you have mounting blocks that will take 4mm screws.

I have found that once you have the mounting blocks in place you never have to touch them again, as it is so easy to just remove the motor from the blocks.

Default tb-E4 Vs 415

I am into the shaft drive. the belt adjustments is tricky.

Alright. i ordered the Kyosho Fw-05 chassis. This comes with the sponge tires. So hear is the deal:

Can you guys suggest any hop -up parts i will need to build this out top-shelf style?
What engine do you recommend?

This is a great group! I enjoy reading the posts.

Anyone in Seattle? If so where can i find parts to this beast?

Thanks Nimo & Jeffrey, I have a micro ss clutch that I love so much. It engages extremely quick and the mounts are offset to bring it in closer to the spurs when sitting really low (.03mm from the chassis). But I think I'll stick to the stock one.

Kid, the stock one works quite well. You will never think about it again.

Thanks, guys! That's what I plan to do. The micro clutch is probably happier in the Evo anyways.

Try the 37t ring gears. Otherwise, the car fine. Consider it just one big hop-up.
