x-5 is hybrid; with a supersize big gulp chassis...

wider rear, wide is better; its all the same - all those small differances make a good setup. make it available to the general public and i may get one.

An example to me of a hybrid car would be when people were taking their Bk2/MF2 cars and putting the Gen1 tranny on it. (before the cr line was released) The RB5 is a production car. Yes obviously it has aspects built into from the CR and the B4, but how can it not, unless you do something crazy like the X6 or the Atomic Carbon car. (2 more examples of hybrid cars)

Very good advice. The availability of parts and local support should be one of the deciding factors.

I would look into how the local support is for each car. If you dont happen to have a local factory driver, then I would reccomend either the B4, or the RB5 as they are the most serious about developing/racing a 2wd offroad car.

To be a "Hybrid" in the RC world it would need to run on Electricity and Nitro!

I have raced The B4 for a while and just recently picked up a XXX-CR. I shaved nearly half a second off my lap times with the Losi. The car is much more consistent.

I have yet to get my hands on the RB5 but would like to check it out. I have the ZX-5 and like it alot.
