If you are starting out then you should go with a b4 and if you have experience then you should get a b44..

That`s easy then . XXX-CR . But if you want 4wd , B44 is a much better buggy then XXX-4 , unfortunetly .

A 4wd buggy will smoke a 2wd buggy w/ the right driver. However, a 2wd buggy will teach you to be a better driver.

I personally like 4 wheel a lot better because it feels like you can drive much harder and its faster...

That`s because you can drive it harder and faster especially around the turns .

It doesn`t matter ? He might be one of them that doesn`t like 4wd .


SHAUN , I`d go to your track and ask one of the guys there about the B44 or whatever you want to get and ask if you can run a few laps and see if you like it before spending the money .

4wd is a fun class but it is a minority class compared to the 2wd buggy and truck classes .

i love 4x4 buggies the 3 top seeds are the kyosho sp hot bodies d4 and the b44 any of those 3 are an absolute blast to drive and they are all very durable 4wheelers a few years back wernt much fun but now with some technology they are making a huge comeback and me thats all i drive now just cause you can flat out rail on them. my choice is the lazer sp or a hotbodies the hotbodies is an easy bug to drive fast and it may be th most durable of the 3. one main reason why 4x4 died was the stress on the motor due to heat from driveline drag but those days are over and with brushless motors and lipo the run times and ease of maintenence has gotton alot better. 2wheel drive is still more popular but i do see 4x4 becoming as popular soon.

That isnt a good reason because the RC8 isnt made in the US and Losi products are always made in the US. Losi parts can be found just as easy as AE and I think Losi has an advanatge in truck and 2wd buggy but sadly AE has the advantage in 4wd buggy. But if you have a bunch of side by side or stick packs go with the Losi becuse the B44 i=only accepts saddle packs.
