The B44 looks like a solid buggy...I'm diggin' the carbon fiber....I have a lot of carbon on my racing motorcycle....and even quite a few bits on my street bike. My wife is getting tired of 160mph track days so maybe it's time to get back into RC cars. LOL
The more I read....and it's been ALL day....the more I see it's like 95% ready to run kits. Who really likes to open a box and POOF! A working vehicle. Doesn't anyone prefer and enjoy building their rigs from scratch??
I would also consider a kick AZZ nitro vehicle that I can build from absolute scratch. Any suggestions?
RTR's are more popular because not alot have the time anymore to build the car from a kit. Although I bought a Slash, I want to get a SC10 when I get the money because it is a kit and that I can add my own electronics to it.
As far as a nitro kit, I wouldn't know.
Buy from your Local Hobby Shop, IF they are not overpriced and they appreciate your business.
If you are looking at 1/8 scale, I believe your only option is Caster Racing. The pro buggy and truggy come unassembled.....and you can decide if you want to be a nitro guy or an electric guy right from the beginning instead of buying a conversion kit type of product.
and make sure you go to casterracingusa.com, not casterracing.com....much more info at the U.S. one.
