GMS, i can help you with set up for the XXX-4, mine was set up good for Farmer's. I tried using setup sheets once, did not work for me, but they were not for the local tracks either!

I like the XXX-4 over the B44, mostly because everyone shows up with a B44, I wanted to be different, and most hobby shops have parts for the Losi, and at the time i got mine, AE was just coming out with theirs and had no parts support. different now.

Well i have a B44 and i love it but also my cousin has a XXX-4 and he loves it. I have driven his a couple of time and the only major differences were that his XXX-4 was much more stable in the air and his handling was just a little worse but not too bad. But every time we race i win... idk if its the car or the driver

I'm with you, I've always been a Losi guy when it comes to offroad and an Xray guys when it comes to onroad. But the B44 has caught my eye recently and now im stumped on what to buy

Ive had both and I prefer the B44 because I like to actually drive it like a 4wd buggy and not like an egg...

if you see nothing but b44's on the track that says something. people have them, setups, and probably parts.

If your track isnt well stocked with xxx4 parts, dont get one...They could not carry any b44 parts and I would still get it...

I had a XXX4G+ for a while. That thing would break if the wind blew in the wrong direction.

Granted I'm not that great of a driver and tend to crash a bit.

This car is not very durable.

To me the hingepin system on this thing is the weakest point.

I recently got a used ZX-5sp and it's great.

I moved my motor and speed control from my XXX4G+ to the K-car.

It handles good and stays together when you crash.

I have good parts support for it where I live so for me it good to go.
