Default Best 4wd buggy (stick pack setup). Will crash a lot!

Hi, planning to add a 4WD buggy to my cars and already have a bunch of Lipo Stick packs, so something like a B44 wouldn't work.
What is the best option for a 4wd buggy that will accept lipo stick packs and is rugged and reliable for somebody with not much experience on those particular cars?
Will be racing at HotRod Hobbies in Santa Clarita, so parts availability for different brands is not an issue.
thanks a lot.

I, like you, wanted to keep my existing batteries. I think your best bet is the Kyosho ZX-5.

Would go with a ZX-5 as well. Drove one last weekend and was really impressed. Still like my B44 though
