Default 2WD Buggy with Saddle config

Are there any 2wd buggies that I can use my saddles with?

You can put them in most all 2wd buggies.

Any config will still fit for instance a B4. Just make sure the wires/plugs are not in the way of anything.

The Atomic-Carbon S2 uses a saddle pack layout. X-Factory X-6 uses 4+2, just like the X-5.

Why do you want a car thats designed to only run saddle packs?

Back in the RC10/Ultima/JRX2 days there were several graphite chassis plates available for these cars that were saddle conversions. They made the car more lazy left to right and improved rear traction a little-that was a good thing with the tires of the era. Team Losi started making softer tire compounds then Proline caome out with XTR/M2/M3 and it was back to inline batteries.

Awhile ago at M'n'M Brent Newman and some of the other guys there experimented with a XXX saddle pack car. I'll see if I can find one of the chassis' from that experiment. As I recall, the weight was too far from center and the car rolled to much. But, that was on slicks, it might work somewhere.

I think Losi tried out a saddle pack 2WD a couple of years ago, it was saddle pack to make it shorter (the pack I mean) so it could fit the mid-motor design.

There's also the Atomic Carbon S2 (a conversion for the AE B4) which uses saddle packs and indeed isn't wholly unrelated to the losi 2wd I mentioned before.
