Use B4 shock shafts up front the .71 length ones. ( when using these no need for limiters ) That helps a lot as of arms usually the extra speed or better put acceleration that a 4wd buggy will have will result in broken arms if not landed right. Either class you pick you can have a great time

You got me then. I guess it is all personal preference and driving style as I used to own a Schumacher cat 4wd buggy not the newest one of course but after my first experience with that one I would not care for another. To each his own I guess. Hope you like your new one when you get it.

BTW ... ESmith I still say 4WD and I would recommend the B44 first or BJ4 than maybe a hot bodies d4 but really all depends which is easier to get parts for at the track.

Yes they break but show me a car or truck that does not. They usually are way over powered so I would suggest taking some throttle out and run. As you progress than slowly bump the throttle up. To me 4wd is way easier to control. Just my .02 cents
Yea but it's just as hard to go fast... 4wd fast.

Yeah that is why I told him to bump the throttle down not everyone is trying to be the fastest just have fun oh yeah I forgot that is not part of it anymore huh

When I broke the one I had you had to special order any part. It took like a week to get anything. ESmith whatever you go with make sure parts are easily available you will see what I mean.

Well , might be your opinion but some 2wd buggies can actually get around a track faster . Sometimes we combine 4wd and 2wd together when it`s slow to make one class . Believe it or not but many times several 2wds end up 1st and 2nd . And yes it is the driver and 4wd doesn`t always hook up better . It is definetly a fun class to race though .

One last thing he asked for opinions on what to get not whats the best vehicle ever made. I gave my opinion like he asked. It is by far my favorite electric vehicle to run inside off road that is why I said 4WD.
