Default New to 1:10 Buggy - B4 or XXX-CR ??

I'm moving to a new area, and I need to hang up my TC to start driving electric buggy and truck.

Which buggy should I get - AE B4 or Losi XXX-CR ??

Any thoughts on which is better or more durable? The LHS at the track has parts support for both brands.

Thanks for any info.

Here we go again . This will end up in a flame war . Go check out the track and see which is popular and go with that . Both are great buggies and known winners .

I have had both also . I like the way the B4 gets into turns . But the XXX-CR handles the track a lot better .

Depends on your tastes. The losi is near indestructible, but the associated turns better.I personally will not support associated since the thunder tiger buyout due to failing customer service and quality issues. and i have run their cars for 20+ years. not any more.I ran the losi for a season. The rear end was ALWAYS glued.I just couldnt get used to the steering.Not my style I guess, But the car was great. I broke 1 part(rear shock tower) in a years time. I run an academy GV2 now and love it. But really if you are going to pick between the 2 brands, go with the losi. It's a tough as they come.Plus if you do need customer service, it may take a while , but at least they do make good when there is a legit problem with a kit, like it's missing a part or something like that.

I drive a B4 and drove the rb5 for about a year, I would say the losi cr or the rb5 wuld be the best choice for starting out. I think the losi is more forgiving then the b4.

If you can get to drive all three i would suggest it.
