No doubt it is a 4WD that should be considered if one is serious about Racing
Ryan Cavalieri can win with anything. Yeah the buggy is good, but give HIM the credit. He beat anybody with anything.
At my local track the car is BJ4 is modest. They don't look tlike they handle to good and have their share of dnf's. Maybe it's the drivers? I dunno. My track is blown out and rutted and XX4's are dominent. They just seem to handle the rough stuff best. You could see it. Although last time tq was held by a XXX4. Just goes to show it's the man behind the wheel that's the major diffrence. You could tell he had a hell of a time though. He had to wheel that car big time.

The bj4 has been the mainstay of late, and most things I have read say jconcepts supports the car very well. I mayself am considering either the x5 or kyosho.
Billy the D4 HB car is out right now. Jermey Felles is driving it and he's not on hotbodies so it should be out for the public .

and yes 4wd is very expensive and they break more often than a 2wd. I would start with 2wd buggy, truck before you do get a 4wd, just my opinion.

what hot bodies did was copie associated. I read on another thread that hot bodies was ordering worlds conversion kits that is why they have the sattle pack chassie, they ordered arms, chassies, shock towers alot of the stuff and I guess they based there car of the BJ4 cause there really is no difference in the features of the car.

Academy SB is a great choice for you. If you're like me, whom isn't willing to bankrupt myself over an RC car, then the SB is for you. They are cheaper than everything mentioned above (i'd say 80-150, $150-200 for pro). I owned both th SB and the Pro. IN all honesty, there were no real differences. Obviously the CF chassis is better. But the FRP chassis was nearly as good. It's a 4wd shaft driven buggy, that handls extremely well, and is unbreakable. Not to mention, it has a simple, yet sexy looking body. My 2nd choice would be to get a TC3"O". I know I'm going to get flame for this. But it's a neat little car that chances are, no one at the track will have but you. Just really an attention grabbing thing. Performance wise, I can't say much about it, but it's definitely something that's going to be rare and collectible in the future, and will provoke discussions.

Mitch

Wouldnt have anything to do with something going directly through the middle of the car would it?

Im guessing theyd like to use stick packs if they could get it to work.
