Default Best 1/10 4WD Dirt Track mod buggy?

I know, there is no best, but I think there is some room for "buggy1 is better for this type of track, buggy2 is better for another..." For example, I don't think anyone would recommend the Schumacher for outdoors dirt.

We are moving out of the indoor track and starting up on the outdoor track. Itís been about 20 years since I raced it - I canít wait! But I need new ride as my indoor carpet Slash Spec just ainít gonna cut it outdoors on this huge track. Looking for thoughts on these racers.

There was a thread recently discussing the AE 74.1D vs the Tekno eb410.2 on a similar track for stock motor racing. The Losi 22x-4 was not discussed and I'm looking to run a mod motor.

What do you think will be best for a medium to large off road track running Mod motors? The lanes are 10 feet wide of loamy baseball type clay that is also used for 1/8 racing. My LHS stocks AE, Tekno and Losi, but this isn't their track so hard to tell, and nobody is racking right now since it's still winter.

The LHS had an indoor high tack clay track that is fun to run on as well, so the new car will run on both track types. But the outdoor dirt is the primary track.

Thanks for checking this out!

I don't have either one of those, but I have seen and heard guys at the track say the Teckno and TLR is more durable out of the box than AE. However, TLR and Tekno is a few years older than the AE.

The tekno is probably most at home outdoors, I don't really like working on them. I've helped a few people with theirs indoors.

The AE is the most versatile and will overall have the most support. And there some low grip setups available from the guys over in Australia and some guys here in the states run them outdoors like in florida. 13.5 is so powerful though its very close to mod, so setups will change more with tires and track conditions than power of the motor.

I donít know if the Xray XB4 is the best for your conditions but I can say itís durable AF out of the box.

The owner of my LHS said that he doesn't stock anything for XRay, so Losi, AE and Tekno are what I'm looking at.Thanks thought! Looks like a cool buggy.

If I had to choose between those 3 options for dirt... I would go TEKNO

If you plan to ever run on carpet or turf, then I would go AE which is more versatile for a wider range of track conditions, but honestly TEKNO was designed for dirt and TEKNO offers a 50% lifetime warranty on their parts.

I'm in the market for a new wheeler myself and have been waiting for HB to release the D422 Evo in the coming weeks

At $100 less than the other brands, for sure the best deal and a strong performer on dirt.
