I think the biggest difference chassis wise, is rtr has dog bones vs CVD's and the shocks use spacers to adjust vs the threaded ring.

I think anyone of these cars could be setup to go just as fast as the other.

I have a RTR and a FT, both are good, buy what you can afford.

The B4 RTR also had the "stealth" label, but all B4's are "stealth". I think it is a reference to the stealth transmission isn't it?

The difference is (from what I've read and heard) Associated are no longer allowed to use the word "stealth" on their products for legal reasons (ie, someone else was threatening to sue).

The new kits should(hint hint Team AE) also come with 1 1/2oz of lead weight too....since everyone adds that much to the rear of the car any way. I have a new FT B4 on the way now. I didn't know they changed the chassis in the kit but that's a big +. I guess I'll have a spare chassis as I ordered a plastic chassis at the same time.
