Looking for a new chassis...

Postby mitchponton » Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:03 pm

I've had some fun doing the FMC on my Sprint 2 and I'm doing brushless, LiPo, digital, and overclocking in the next couple weeks. I'm thinking of the new 2014 X-Ray T4 and I'm asking for some help on what chassis to get, why, and what parts I need to get in order to get my new chassis CS'ed and drifting properly.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey bro I thought I would post this because I hate when people ignore some one in need of some help but the xray is a good racing chassis but lacks drift abilities I would suggest a tamiya or yokomo. Yoks can be expensive but the tuning options and upgrades are endless. Tamiya are a lil less expensive but have a good upgrade option and a good tuning option

Thank you very much, I have done some research and the yokomo models seem to be too expensive for what you get. I believe I've decided on the Tamiya TA06 Pro with the R Sector carbon conversion. What do you think about that choice?

Yokes are worth every buck you pay, especially Type-C and DIB-RS kits.

So mobills you would say that its worth it to get the Ta 06 with the carbon conversion. And Stalwart you say to get a Yokomo model because it will be worth it.

If you want all the upgrades Tamiya gets expensive fast because more plastic to replace Yokomo has less you need to upgrade so probably cheaper in the long run.There are alot of other options out there than those 2 but really depends on how much you want to spend

Well If I'm looking a chassis for about 600 bucks, and I looked at the Ta06 Pro with the R Sector carbon conversion and electronics will run me about 500 bucks. I'm also looking for a car that I can get parts for without ordering from some place that takes weeks upon weeks to get here.

Stal is right about the yoks,less upgrades to buy because of the quality of the chassis. The ta06 is a very good chassis tho but if i was u,i would buy a yok and buy some used electronics that are in good shape u will save some money too

600 is a nice amount to start with. Do a little more digging for a chassis tho, both mentioned are nice choices but there is also MST, StreetJam, d-like, and Overdose just to mention a few others. Good luck on your choice.

Sorry for my absence for a while I was onboard a ship. I looked at those chassis as digi16v has explained that would be great but getting parts will be difficult as I'm in the states. I'll look into MST a bit more and the other brands but I'm pretty set on the D3 from 3Racing as its cheap and parts are easy to get for me. I've also read that the chassis works very well and its not too expensive. I steered away from the TA06 as it seems I'll run into some issues making it a dedicated drifter.
