florida is about 600 miles long. What part of florida are you going to move to? If you are just going to order something from online then I would go with www.towerhobbies.com Other wise let us know what part of florida your going to move to so that you can be pointed towards a good hobby shop that can actualy help you out when problems arrise.

http://www.btrc-central.net

hobby shop and track. located in fort walton beach, florida. that's in the north/west part of florida on the coast, about half way between pensacola and panama city. panama city is where mtv used to do spring break tv.

the web site isn't much (it's free), but it's got a fourm and the address and phone number of the track on it.

Yeah Superior Hobbies is a great hobby shop and they are located in Orlando. They are on the Eastern side of Orlando, probably about 20-30 minutes from the airport, pending on traffic. That hobby shop is amazing. Their website is www.superiorhobbies.com. I live in Orlando, so if you ahve any more questions just shoot me a pm. later

If you come north in flofida there are a couple of shop, www.newredhobbies.com in ocala and hobby world if jax. There are also a few private tracks around that we run on. And for the question on the B4.... I used to be die hard losi untill I race a friend of mine B4. Great Buggy I'm a pretty bad driver and still haven't broke any parts on my b4, easy to tune as well.
