Well , maybe your the one cranking too much on the wrenches like you claim people do .

Not exactly sure why you have problems with it and so many others don`t .

You just have to remember, it's a plastic toy car not a real car.

Not for nothing, but you will find 1 person in 10 who really liked the Bk2. I used to have one and it didn't matter what I did I couldn't get it driving the way I wanted. Yeah you can put the Cr rear on it but you will still be stuck with limited tuning options for the rear links, rear CVDs (instead of the CRs U-joint axles) which really hurt steering, bellcrank steering and the too stiff graphite chassis which makes the car tough to drive on all but the smoothest tracks. Beautiful car, great build quality with the graphite but the CR is better in virtually every situation bar none.

I know the ea3 can strip if not careful but I think guys GROSSLY exaggerate how "weak" it is!! I have never broken a single Ea3 part-and I have taken some pretty hard tumbles off the triple at my track-although I do run the graphite front arms because they are stronger.

There is no comparison--the CR gives you everything you need in one box, get graphite front arms and some decent ball cups and you are good to go. To get the Bk2 working properly you have to spend more than getting a brand new CR.

I had a B4 and its a great car but it can be unpredictable from heat to heat. The CR has literally made me love 2wd buggy. Its my favorite car out of everything I have. It just takes a little more thought to get real steering out of it.
