There's a lot of info about all types of electric 4WD at www.4wdrc.com
. The class is really growing with the release of three new cars in the past 6 months: The BJ 4X4, the X - 5, and the Academy.
Although attendance was unusually low this year, Uncle Joe's 16th annual Labor Day race & BBQ actually had more 4WD entries than 2WD buggies! And, there were 6 different types of car entered: xxx-4, BJ 4X4, Academy, X - 5, xx-4, and Yoke. (X - 5 won) Kind of makes you think 2WD is boring because it's dominated by two cars!!
Many tracks are reporting increased interest in the 4WD class. Because of the extra mechanical components, less kick-up, and higher speeds, 4WD will meed more repairs than buggy or truck. But on all save a few tracks, electric 4WD Mod is the fastest car out there, bar none. That includes 1/8 gas. And that makes the class major fun!
