This buggy is definitely worth looking into and watching. The layout is quite unique. It manages to bias the weight towards the rear like a saddle without the saddle. Really neat stuff... I'll have to come up with an excuse in my conscious to justify buying this... Hmmm... I did get my tax return...

I think I might want to try this car too.. heck.. it's listing for $219 on Tower Hobbies! I like the D4 but just cant justify nearly $500 for the kit.

Just a quick update to let you know that I have managed to fit a pack of Nosram 5300 lipos into the 10B. you need to shim the part where the battery braces to secure up by about 2mm. I also raised the rear diff up by 0.50mm, just to be on the safe side to make sure the input shaft doesn't hit.

most of the aluminum "goodies" are the standard parts from the Hot Bodies D4 WCE so you can start there :P

I bought one about a year ago.. the esc is pretty cool.. love the program card. The motors however, suck... Mine fell apart within the first couple of days using it. I heard this horrible scraping sound... thought it was cogging at first.. but then looked at the motor and the end fell off... stripped out.

Yes they will fit onto this car. As will the worlds shocks. I'm running all of them on my car. I would also recomend upgrading the turnbuckles for the new titanium items, I have done two meetings at a track over here in the uk which is renound for being a car breaker and the car has with stood everything I have thrown at it.

I never hated the D4, After all I had a sucessful season with the car. However I feel a lot more comfortable with the Cyber 10B. Think this is because of the extra flex from the plastic chassis.
