Default Team Associated rc10nds qualifier vs Hpi rs4

Which of these 2 would you get, used, if they have the same price...
A Team Associated rc10nds qualifier 2wd, with a traxxas .15 pro engine OR a Hpi rs4 4wd, all stock?
Please let me know which would you prefer and why.
Regards, Florin

get the HPI...I have both.....the HPI is 4wd.....the HPI can still be raced(though it is a bit outdated) at a club level....

you can still get parts for the hpi.........More people owned the HPI.,....ANY tires fit the HPI....(NONE fit the dual sport,)...

did I mention the HPI is 4wd?..

Hello Florin,

The RS4 is the choice here. Because of parts availability and performance. It will accept any tires and wheels while upgrades are still available.

However a VoneS would be nice too!

Later

Yes that is true. But it cannot go anywhere fast if it doesn't have enough traction.

Hey Florin,

All things considered, of the choices you mentioned and the money you have to spend I would lean toward the Traxxas 4-tec. It has it's flaws, but for what you want it for I think it would work. It's fast, 4wd and parts are readily available. Make sure you got good pics to tell the condition and a good description of what you would get.

Got your e-mail(s) I like those cars you sent They are fast, real fast. We don't race those classes here though.

Later,
DFS

hey vulso,
how bout the Tamiya TG-10 Mk1? I could get it at much better price, and look here.. http://www.nitroreview.com/TheDatabase/homekits.cfm , compare the 4-tec with the tg-10 mk1 .. 4-tec has 4.32/5 rating and tg-10 mk1 has 4.67/5 rating.
plz do some search on the tg-10 mk1, to find more information, and let me know if this is good car too, cause im more leaned toward this one.
Florin

Hey Florin,

I knew a guy that had a TG10 and he liked it. I don't know what your guy is offering with his, but the 12LT motor is kinda slow but reliable. It has 4WD with shaft drive like a TC3 and comes stock with a 1-speed. TowerHobbies.com has some parts for it along with the 2-speed upgrade for $45.00. You do have the same problem with this as the DS, it is a discontinued model. All things being equal I still like the 4-tec option because it is still being made and parts and upgrades are easy to find. Just my opinion. If you like the TG10 go for it.

Regards,
DFS

Ok my bad. I thought the TG10 mk1 was discontinued.

I do know it's nitro though. The 12lt is what it comes with?
.12 cc nitro motor. That is what the one I saw had.

However, all the better it is not discontinued though that should mean parts should be easy to get. Problem solved.

Let me know what you decide.
