I think most off road rcs are angled in the front. I know my t-maxx, revo platinum, kyosho usa-1 and nitro quakes were angled, at least slightly.

You are correct. The B44 has no chassis kickup in the front.

A carbon fiber chassis 4wd buggy is about the only off-road car that won't have some sort of kickup in the front. 1/10 scale 2wd vehicles(buggies, truck, SC trucks) have what's called a "kick plate" that has the same function as the "bend" in 1/8 scale chassis'.

The b44 does have kickup, the carbon fiber isn't bent but the front bulkhead is plastic and has a few degrees of kickup. Not as much as the 1/10 2wd's though.
