Which electric offroad is best?

I have some very high power electronics, from an old kit, and I want to put them into a worthy new off road kit. I was originaly looking at the new B4 but have reicently been looking at Team Losi's new XXX-4, and their own verson of the B4, all of these have spare parts readily available at my local hobby shop. Now I have no idea which to pick.

I'd go with the B4 or XXXKE. Both are nice kits to build and race. Plus there cheaper then 4wd. The xxx-4 will need some extra parts to make it worthy of racing or you'll just break stuff all the time.

id get the 4wd if the class is strong enough at your track. i drove the xxx4 when it first came out and i loved it but its not a big class in socal.

the advantage with the losi is you can get the xxx-ke that have everything you need, but the b4 is not the factory team yet, you can buy all the stuff but spend a lot of money doing it. both buggys can win on any given day, and the two magazines that have had "shoot outs" between the two have both came to a draw on the results of which one is better.

can you drive someones b4/xxx to see which one fits your driving style? because that and your personal pref. will be the biggest factor.

thanks for all the help. i just descovered that there are very few people into the 4wd off buggys, based on this i have decided on the XXX-KE because there is a better supply of spare parts for it than the B4
