Every used B44.x sale just had to drop their price $100 :)

racingnewb 11-23-2016 05:22 AM

I had checked the b44.3 sales yesterday and they are the same price and selling within a day or 2. One of the for sale b44.3 was sweet, it came w/ a ton of parts/spare slipper diff, ball diffs and some nicely painted body's. Same w/ the xb4's they cost twice as much and selling very fast as well.

lyons238 11-23-2016 05:58 AM

looks like they got A LOT of inspiration from the xb4 - little too much if you as me. kinda like the 1/8 scale.

seems like associated isn't innovating as much these days as apposed to other companies.

That's not how proven engineering works. You are basing your likes and dislikes on visual eye candy rather than performance on the track.

Wil Holmes 11-23-2016 06:08 AM

Look forward to getting my hands on one of these! Wish they would leave the kit clear like the pictures.
