good luck with your 8th scale roller.

You are by all means free to get what you want. If you are looking to keep cost down on a wheeler maybe the Durango DEX410 (older V2 or V3) will be more to your shopping taste? The V4 though is listed for $400 so it is up there in the same ballpark to get the latest revision.

If you want extreme budget you can go with a Quanum Vandal
Honestly if I was shipping from HobbyKing as it was I might toss one or two of these in to play with... you can get one to run and one for on hand parts as cheap as it is.

I will ALL DAY!

My B44.2 - $369
Avid Chassis - $80
Machine Pistons 2 x $14 = $28
Bugle boy gear diff conversion - $99
Two DEX410 gear diffs - 2 x $38 = $78

without so much as an extra ball cup for my B44.2 = $654

I love my b44 but by no means would i call it durable.

Not having to rebuild crunchy diffs all the time, replace front a-arms or carry imperial and metric hardware in my box...(My 2wd buggy is metric ) = PRICELESS!

$500 is a steal for the D413 - But for the love of GOD.....get this thing released!

Rant Over

I was very keen also Jason but I might wait till they release a smaller spur as I want to run stock and need a 5.80 on our track :-(

I hope its released soon too. The more "new" 4wd buggies there are the better. The class is coming back in my area, and I can't wait.

Where did you get a new d812 for $350? The d812 cost 519.99 plus another 50-75 to convert.

You can get the D812 for $519.99 then get $75 off and free shipping at tower hobbies. The conversion cost about $28.

Ok so $473. Did you read my post? That's not 350

Never really paid attention to the HB stuff, but just saw an old interview at Airage media's channel on youtube with Torrance showing the buggy...

This design is absolutely gorgeous, seems like a huge leap for 4wd 1/10th... Never understood why even after 2 updates to the B44, AE still haven't offered a gear diff for their B44...

May have to look into this buggy on my next 4wd 1/10th purchase, looking at this design, it looks like they gave it a lot of thought...

One observation though, should the motor be on the left side? My B44's motor is on the right side, and always thought that shaft 4wd buggies had it place on the right so the weight bias of the motor cancels out the twisting effect caused by the center drive shaft?

MATH RULES! My experience in the RC field is that you really do get what you pay for. Most people who don't believe this just don't have good stuff.

The motor and centerline drive shaft will always spin in opposite directions.

This buggy can have the motor flipped for saddle vs shorty lipo chassis setup.

Although, now that the 2wd Buggy has been updated, could a B45 be on the horizon?

Ive had the change to witness Ty drive his D413 a few times now....most notably at the worlds in Chico and then last month at the Reedy race....

The car is extremely durable not to mention so smooth and hooked up......no doubt in part to Ty's ultra smooth driving style but one more reason to get this car is that Ty and Gord are set up NINJA's....

I'm sure they'll have a variety of set ups to get you close to exactly what you need with this car......not to mention the fact that I'm pretty sure Torrance was one of the original designers for the winningest 2wd buggy every "B4"


I'll be here patiently waiting!
