Default 1/10 4wd electric buggy w/stick packs for lipo?

I am possibly in the market for a new 1/10 4wd electric buggy. I race lipo packs in my 4wd sedan so would want to get a chassis that is suitable for stick packs. I have seen the Kyosho ZX-5, the XXX-4 and the non-worlds BJ4 but havent seen anything else.

Anyone have any recommendations for other 4wd buggies that accept stick lipos or which one is the best suited for a 10.5 brushless setup. I want something durable that doesnt have a reputation of breaking.

Thanks

I would look at the SBV2 Pro. That is was one of the perks that it has which I liked because I also run stick packs. I'd ramble on about all the features, but give that a look.

i think the non-we bj4 uses alot of the same parts as the newest bj4.

that would be my suggestion.

I'm loving my Lazer. I got it for just the same reason (run Lipo in my RB5 already) and the car works great!

Yep, I've had mine since they came out and I wouldn't sell it for anything. Easy to work on, parts are cheap and you can get them everywhere...it's METRIC...it uses 1/8th scale clutch bearings in most of the car (very handy and saves moolah)...plus it's dialed, very tough and very fun to drive.

The TC-5 is an onroad sedan. My inquiry is in regards to an 1/10 electric 4wd buggy.

The Lazer looks awesome! I used to have one but never got a chance to race it since my local track decided to race on days that dont work for me. That is my number 1 choice right now. Want to try and find the atomic chassis and shock towers as well to add durability and decrease weight.

The newer kits have revised shock towers that are stronger. I have yet to break one.

I'll second the SBV2 Pro. Excellent car and cheap.
