I too am happy with the 733 evo.It has the best cornering speed I've ever felt in a touring car. Support is great. But I really think it depends on what type of support you can get in your location.
After performance, the next important thing to me is the cost of ownership and the 733 fits the bill. The Xray and Cap are great cars but when you look at the consumables ie..Belts,clutch shoes and pinion gears. I believe the 733 to be a better value with the same performance.


Pass you soon...

This is an opinionated question and every time this question gets asked people always wanna say the xray is the best car. But sorry the Capricorn IS the best sedan.

i looked at the capricorn car at my track and its very very impressive and seen it go against a xray, both drivers of the cars wheel the hell out of them but again the 733 is a swwet car to wheel as well but just by looking at the capricorn car there is no need for upgrades..90% of the car is red except for gears and tray

I agree, I have seen the Capricorn 1/8 car and that is a thing of beauty. However, replacement parts are twice the price though of brands like serpent, xray, etc. at least with the 1/8. But the car like you said comes TOTALLY Decked out. I've heard this car described as "cheating" at one of the midwest series races as the car so smooth and fast everywhere on the track.

I race Shepherd myself....

First I would have to say its totally up to you. the cars today IMO are all extremely well built and so close in abilities its rediculous.


With that said Box to Podium, I would have to say Capricorn based on what I have seen. I do not run it but I have looked at these cars and they are magnificient. Hopped up out of the box. I would have said xray especially for tracks that are smooth, This is what alot of our club members run and for the time being I would say is considered the best. Capricorn I think will take its place.


My honest opinion...... Capricorn
