I would pick my BK1 or a RB5 over a B4 anyday. My Losi never leaves the ground and steers like a mod carpet TC.

If youre going to race in Florida, it is advisable to use AE equipment, especially with 4 full factory guys at every event...

What's a BK 1.5? Is this what everybody is calling the XXXCR now? Or is there some hybrid I haven't heard of?

I have a Losi XXX that I might be interested in selling. I have some parts and it has a custom painted body. It would not have any electronics though. Let me know if you are interested. I'll give you a good price.

For where you are going to race, go see how the turn out is for B4s versus the various losi versions that are being ran. See if you can get a chance to wheel some and see how you like it. Just offer to replace any parts you break to whoever you borrow the car from, thats a fair thing to do.

I like AE products, but I give it to losi for always trying to do different things sooner than AE.

I am not sure about the XXX-CR, heard mixed things about it and since they haven't really pushed out the truck yet which is suprising, makes me wonder if the XXX-CR was more of an intermediate step towards something else. Who knows.

Best bet for you, wheel them both and see what you like.

AH, I see. Also why haven't you considered the Kyosho RB5? I have 4 running here now and it looks good.
