Default **AE needs to produce a new 4WD buggy** thread

I put this in the RCZ forums, so I thought I'd put it here...

We've got the new Losi XXX-4 buggy, the various Yokomo 4WD off-road buggies, and Schumacher's CAT series of buggies. Associated even distributed the Yokomo YZ-10 4WD buggy way back when. Add the new B4 2WD buggy (and presumably the T4 2WD stadium truck) into the mix.

Losi's XXX-4 has revived the near-dormant 4WD class, and Associated's popularity is going to go through the roof when the new 2WD buggy and truck are released.

I think Associated should keep its streak going and give the R/C community what it's been clamoring for: a next-generation 4WD buggy to compete with Losi!

Anybody else have an opinion on this?

I started out racing 4wd way back in the days. I love 4wd, more stuff to work on... easier to drive and it handles like a dream. I remember I had a Schumacher, then the XL, then the YZ10, Works, MX4. Remember all the Optima's? Optima Mid's...then Lazer??? YZ-10, Works, MX4. They were all great cars! And the Yokomo 834B buggy? Always my favorite. Yeah, with only a couple of manufacturers running the Worlds just not right. I mean in the last Worlds, Yokomo didn't even participate! Mugen had an attempt on a 4WD, 4WS car before with roll cage.
