If you're going to race, there are only 2 choices worthy (IMHO)

Losi XXX CR
AE FTB4

MG-I see you caught your mistake, I was fixing to tell you to lay down the crack pipe and step back slowly!! I think this thread is talking about 2wd electric buggies.

The XXXCR and the AEB4 are at the top of the class... take your pick, its a Ford Vs Chevy kind of thing.

The X-Factory X-6 looks promising as well.

On the Team Associated site it says the B4 comes as a RTR... And the xxxCR you gotta buy the motor ect. I want to buy the motor n what not but am i looking at a different B4 on there site??? lol It doesnt really show which one it the best on the site. I might just stick with the xxxCR and drop the Team Navok 3.5 in there...

They make a Kit as well.. Its the "Factory Team" version, you build it, choose the motor and everything else.

Both cars are "The Best" is gets... the rest is up to the driver.

Only the Factory Team edition of the B4 (kit) is on the same level as the XXX-CR. If you get the RTR you will get a stripped down verson of the car. All the bells and whistles are on the Factory Team version. The XXX-CR is the top edition of the losi and will have all the bells and whistles too. The B4 will have more steering out of the box than the CR but setup changes can put the CR on equal ground.

Look a little harder.. there is an entire thread here dedicated to the XXX-CR, its got more than you'd want to know about the car and what setups/motors/esc's/batteries are working in the car.
