Take a look at the BJ4 original addition. It's a great car. Just make sure you can get the parts in Australia and you would be good to go.... My buddy is running one with a cracked front shock tower, a cracked rear arm and a cracked front arm, a stock Banzai motor with bearings in it and no one can beat him at the track I race at. He could not do that with his Lois XX4......

You need to know the cars with cells all on one side. Kyosho Lazer, BJ4 non worlds, Losi xxx-4. If you go that route I suggest a Kyosho Lazer just for the bang for the buck.

However, I saw a lipo saddle pack at www.maxamps.com that can fit in a xx-4. It might be possible to get those to fit in other saddle pack cars also.

i could be mistaken, but i thought i saw somewhere that maxamp batteries was making a lipo saddle pack. that would open up a whole new world of 4wd choices for you.
