get the B44 from your LHS.. support the businesses that invest in you the hobbyist. then you can make sure they can get parts for you as well.

tip: double the front shock tower.

Really ANY of the top 4wds are going to be good cars. Some are just a bit more challenging to drive. I have had and or driven a bunch, and I must say the xxx4 g+ is probably my favorite all around. Tons of rear bite, tons of side bite, easy to drive fast. Only issues--needs more steering lock in stock form and can be kind of fragile at times.

Lazer zx5-sp is awesome as well. Stable, lot of rear traction, mucho steering.

501x WCE is a neat car but parts can be hard to come by and I think it can be very challenging to drive lap after lap. Its easy to get one crazy lap but tough to string a bunch of fast laps together.

What dcoe said.......


I like my lazer sp but i think if your a a really skilled driver there is only so far you can go with it. If anything it's easy to drive fast but harder to drive it on the edge..... this is where i think a b44 or xxx-4 would suit me. I dunno maybe the 5o1x....but no parts support is a huge turn off.

Be different than everyone else with a B44.

Yokomo MR-4BX is incredibly durable.

Parts are available online.
