Losi = natural push, more rear grip and easier to drive

AE = naturally turns more, less rear grip, harder to drive but can be faster.

I drove a XXX-CR for a whole season and really enjoyed the car. You can drive the piss out of it and it will be stable. I switched to a B4 and can see how it could be better just because it turns more and still has good grip. You will get many people saying both are good, and they are, it just depends on your driving style, as both can be tuned to drive different ways.

I have driven plenty of loose Losi cars, so they dont all push, just like not all B4s turn on a dime. Its just a general concensus.

also to add to that, the RB5 is kinda takes the best from both cars, and puts it all togather. it is very easy to drive also. but like king said all can be tuned to drive different.

I thought about getting a RB5 as I see more people running it.

I was told by people at my track that the GTB won't fit. Since I am 5 mins from Novak, GTB is a must for me. So Keep that in mind if you plan on running GTB.

LRP fits because of its smaller footprint.

My friend has a GTB in his RB5 it fits fine, the body might touch it a little, but thats it.

Fits just fine in my RB-5...I don't run a fan, but I don't really think a fan will fit on top of ANY brushless speed control in a current buggy.

Another plus for the RB-5...it's really tough. Really tough. The CR is pretty fragile...at least it was for me.

i never broke cr much, but it all depends on what you hit and how hard.
