hahaha, Never thought of it that way. Has anyone driven this new model yet? I am wondering how it handles. A few local racers said the TM cars are more difficult to get set up compared to the kyosho,NT1, and MTX cars.

My G4WC is identical same as G4+ EVO.......... The handling of the car is fantastic. I would say it's the best in my collections.

See my G4WC here.

So you are saying this car handles much better than the others, and is easier to set up? The only reason I am asking is because there is only 1 guy at my local track that runs a TM car. I don't see many people with them.

Probably because around your area hobby shops dont carry/support TM products. It is almost like that everywhere, but it has nothing to do with the capabilities of a particular brand.

At the top level, kits from Mugen, Kyosho, XRay, Serpent and Team Magic, performance is alike, it just has to do with personal preferences and support.

Ive had every sigle G4 model since the E model, and I have nothing but great satisfaction, and results..and now Im waiting for my + EVO to arrive

Yah I agree with you on the support. I would have to order everything I need. I pretty much order 95% of the parts I need for my mugen, but if I need something there are local places that stock mugen and many people also drive the mugen. I really like the looks of the new TM car and have always wanted to try one, but the support is what is holding me back..........
decisions decisions.
