For those who had B4.1/B4.2 buggies, do these look similar platform/parts wise?

I'm not surprised to see this now that the SR10 is out. You could probably throw together quite the buggy with all the hopups for the DR10 too.

Looks like it's similar to the B5, but with a different chassis plate.

Looks like a B5R with a B4.1 or .2 chassis. But also with B6 gullwing front arms and spindles/other steering parts. So its the best parts to build a rear motor car from 3 generations. Very interesting.

Looks like a neat package, especially for people looking to run 1/10 buggy on loose surfaces. There have been a few threads bemoaning the lack of RM buggies around for that.

How are the shocks and electronics on these series of Associated cars?

I like it! Looks in line when a took a break from the hobby with the SCT days and all my old lipo batteries would fit. I recently found some brand new lipos stored since 2013. Been 8 year and new in package and hope they'll be fine. Rear engine like I remembered it. I wonder if it's competitive?

It's been awhile but I was very competitive with a rear motor B5 in the 17.5 class at my local, somewhat tight indoor med-high grip track. Modern motors and lipos are very light allowing a lot of latitude with weight distribution tuning. The modern mid motor cars are highly evolved and the much improved polar moment of inertia over a rear motor car can't be dismissed. Still, the difference was typically .2 to .5 per lap, depending of layout. Still collected tons of club level wins with clean, consistent, and smart driving. If they still ran 1/10 on our big, loose outdoor track, I wouldn't hesitate to break out my rear motor stuff.

It looks like Kyosho will have to stop making buggies after they come out with the RB9.9.

A stock race class using these cars would be a lot of fun.

Exactly what I thought when the short course equivalent came out. Not that there's even offroad stock classes around here!

Not seen a parts list/diagram, but pretty much a B5 on a B4 style tub chassis plate ... most B5 components will fit, except need B4 style servo mounts (through chassis) ... the plastic is different from both 4 and 5 series, and the hubs/steering blocks/etc will have less adjustability (no inserts) than 5 series, more like 4 series ... in essence many of same components shared with ProSC10/DR10/etc. likely ...
