  1. It all depends on the type of racing and track. If it's not a serious racing scene, kinda of bring your car place, the TA07 should be fine. But if you're in local tournament with people that can setup up their cars and are competitive, the tamiya would end up getting lapped by the BD10, T4, or mi7. It would take a lot of hop ops for the TA07 to keep up. The weight alone is an issue for the TA07 plus all the plastic. It's been 3 years since I did competitive on-road racing but even a cheap sakura 3acing pro kit is better suited out of the box. It's all up to you and what you want to do. Someone mentioned getting a used xray. That's what I'd do if you want to race competitively.
  2. Hey bashing around a tamiya can be fun. Having fun is the most important part. But if you're actually racing in a tournament with good racers out there (even local), it won't look so good driving a tamiya in terms of racing. There's a reason why you see Associated, Xray, TLR, and Kyosho out winning championships . You see racers learn from other racers. And you won't find anyone doing real racing using a tamiya because there really isn't any racers doing it to model after. Plus you're going against people that have racing kits that are built for the modern track. That's not what Tamiya is about. I've raced locally and regionally for years. Even when I was a kid, I was lapping tamiya frogs, foxes, and hornets with my Ultima. And I was being lapped by rc10's (I wasn't as good as the rc10 adults). But try it out. Nothing wrong with seeing what happens. What Tamiya were you looking at racing? There are some local races that have a novice open class. That might be the race you want to get in.
  3. This is true. I think Kyosho does a good job of winning races and heart.
