the car has been out for quite some time, infact its outdated, it has been replaced with the xxxcr. its 10th scale electric, pretty good quality. but you may be better off going with the CR, or at least changing some of the parts to the new CR variants.

The BK2 isn't outdated, you may say that because of the CR's release but it still wins races. My BK1 is very fast but it does have CR parts on it.

my last losi buggy I ended up having parts from all 3 cars, BK1,2,CR to get the best combination for handling. If I remember correctly, The BK2 front end with BK1 tranny....then a handful of CR jiblets to complete the puzzle was hella fast.

would you say $120 aus dollars ($100 US) is a good buy with a 3800 and 4200 NiMH batteries and a 15 T motor, but no ESC or servo.

No sweat, and yea, they are faster. I think my buggy handles extremly good.
