I just searched and this thread came up ... I am in the middle of the same decision. So far from what I'm reading it is only a problem if I have to order parts (which I hate
Also no one else runs 4wd ep by me.
The pros I like are shaft drive and a very reputable name.
BIG questions I have , Granted I have not searched this yet but I am going to :
1.) WHAT lipo will work in this chassis with no mods?
2.) I want to run the Orion platinum . Does this look like a problem for me?
3.) If the only problem so far with this buggy is the shocks and since Tune71 has so kindly posted a replacement part I feel I am leaning towards this as my first 4wd buggy. Kinda wanted the xxx4g but not seeing a lot of people pushing it. Also I'm not positive but I thought I heard that Losi is discontinuing it. ( possibly a new 4wd on the way?)
And last question does the ZX-5 come with rims and tires or is it the same ol' Kyosho and they say F that?
