View Full Version : About Tamiya 502x

I want to buy a new car, I love Tamiya brand but I readed some bad things about the 502x (easy to break the shock tower, slots in the diff joints are too large -dust easy enter the gearbox-, etc.). I can't decide if 502x it's the best choice for me (run "outdoor") or better the ae b44.1 which it is very similar design. Which one is harder to break?

What's your opinion?

Between the two, I'd personally go for a b44.1.

Easy to buy. A new 502x isn't easy to find.

Spares easy to purchase. Tough car according to some.

World champ pedigree.

Cheaper! You can pick up a good one on oople.

Its harder to find the 502x than a B44.1 .

However it just makes it more fun doing something usefull on the internet!

But, if there is the same spares disponibility and without money, what would be your choice?

Thanks for your replys! :)
