Default A Good basher/club racer

Hey guys,

Any suggestions as to what would be a good EP offroad basher that can hold up for some club level social/fun racing?

Was thinking a RC10T4 team kit??

well.. just want some opinions

Cheers,

Ben.

the T4 is a great truck.
I would also look in to the Losi XXXT Brushless RTR

I think i would like to go 2wd as i own a xxx-sg and would like something a little easier to maintain. I also have a Mamba 6900 kit ready to strap in to what ever i get

the XXXT is 2wd, it is a truck just like the T4. If you allready have a Mamba just get the T4 and a Maxamps 8000 lipo and you will be ready to have a great time.

so it is.. ur correct. Whats the average price online for the xxx-t? looks like the AE wins on price.. (hard to admit to as a Losi fan)

Is the only real difference between the RC10T4 team and factory team just the bling bits? or is it worth the extra $$?

The factory team has all the graphite, as well as some other nice aluminum and titanium hop ups.

However, for bashing, graphite is not the way to go.

I would say that overall, it is cheaper to start with a factory team kit new, buy a plastic chassis (popular upgrade for more traction), and go with plastic front a-arms at a minimum and pickup an RPM larger front bumper for your bash sessions.

If you need NIB T4 parts if that is the way you go, look up on ebay right now, I listed a WHOLE LOT of NIB T4 parts, many many sets of a-arms, towers, etc. there. If you are bashing, you will need parts

Losi is a good vehicle too, so if you like that, don't be worried.
