Yeah, and how did he sound like he could beat collari, all he said was he use to run for kyo now he runs for xray, and he feels like the nt does some things better.......he mentioned nothing of his driving ability

Don't mind Android, he is a bit of an idiot, trying to pick a fight with almost everyone.
Probably tried to get some sponsoring but everybody turned him down.

What are the pro's and con's of these 2 chassis'?

Help me decide which way to go, Cheers

P.S. I need to know what chassis to get to hand out an asswhooping to the fast NT1 at my local track
If your in a tight budget it might be easier to just upgrade your RRR
Velox looks good & like all brands there all good
Good luck with your final choice

I ran a nt1 when it 1st came out, and I can honestly say it was nowhere near what it is today, a buddy of mines tried a nt1 after I did and went back to his RRR, as of now the RRR is king at my track, and u kno why because the best driver runs it, it's not the car it's the driver, the majority of today's top drivers run xray, jilles and tosolini will show u what I mean, jilles will win with anything an so will toso, For example how many g4s were n the euro ch? 1 or 2. And he was spankin everybodies ass, u kno why cause for that event his driv and car were working perfectly, any car can and will win, the more top driv u hav at all the races running ur car the better u make the car look, what I'm sayin is don't think for a sec the nt is the best when 80% of the entries including the top guy is runnin it.......Run wht u like and don't let no one tell u that another car is bettr.....

It's just not worth rebuilding my current RRR (Evo 1 WC), I would spend $300-$400 just bringing it up to scratch. Unfortunately these cars wear out and mine has had it (great) day! I couldn't have been happier with it, and I am thinking the Shimo edition is the way I'm gonna go, just heard one of the other guys at my track talking about the Velox, and started researching it, and liked what I saw.

I understand that it's 90% driver blah blah blah (I'm no newbie to RC), just wanted to get some feedback on what guys think of these 2 chassis

Thanks for all the responses

Cheers

We race at the track adjacent to TracksideRC who just received stock of the V10's. An existing driver with a RRR switched across and was just as fast, if not a little quicker considering he hasnt had it very long at all. Looked very smooth and balanced on track.

Good looking cars, innovative braking system, overall another great race car worth considering.

Hey Android, man do you ever read or watch 1/10 nitro racing in the states? i live 8000 miles away and i know that RCAkid has finished 8th in the last ROAR nats in Toledo

cheers

I agree... I haven't heard much about the V10 yet, but I've been very happy with my V8. I would think both kits you mention are capable choices.
