Mayby because it was in Japan, and there were only team drivers form japanese manufactores.

And they didnt even run the finals because of the rain, they only qualified.

Comon' guys....thread was started to find out more about another potential EP buggy out in the market. Not to kill each other and debate which car is better.

About "borrowing" parts...I guess its normal for prototypes to quickly find out about geometry advantages and any other which may suit the production car at the end of the day.

Aren't we glad to have more car kit options nowadays?

Cheers,

Nobody said, "it proves that the BJ4 is the best car."

I said that because they based their prototype cars on the BJ4, they must think the BJ4 is the best car available. If they thought there was a better car available, wouldn't they have used it instead?

All the manufacturers have at one time or another used the competitor part. Losi was using TC3/4 cvd's on their JRXS, AE used XXXS steering parts(I believe spindles) to get more steering. Point is that it doesn't mean anything other then it allows them to get a running prototype faster and cheaper. A lot of todays top touring cars can swap suspension pieced at will. Hara and Reinhard were seen doing this...

In the end I don't care as long as it means more competition and more people enjoying this class.

And the reason why XXXs spindles, castor blocks, and rear hubs even fit on the TC3 was because the XXXS was designed while using AE parts. I would do the same thing. Rememeber, the BJ4 was designed around AE and Losi parts when it came out, and still uses most of them. Why reinvent the wheel?

WOW. 20 posts and still no information. Has anyone got anything useful to add to this thread. I am quite interested in the car rather than who copied who. You guys are as bad as the on-road boys.....

From what I was told its mostly done, all the parts are hot bodies own and the shell is done (tho I dont know anyone whos seen it). a pre production car should be in the hands of team drivers fairly soon all being well.
