I love my XXX4 G+, you've seen it and can take her for a ride if you want beore you choose.

I also picked up that ZX5 to compare because of durability, but I do think it has a lot to do with your driving ability/style. You are a good enough driver to run the XXX4. I still want to see how the ZX5 compares, but I can't believe how smooth the XXX4 feels with the belt drive.

the CAT SX is very nice, would strongly consider one after driving a couple of laps with it.

whichever car you do end up choosing, you have to be smooth with your driving, all 4wd cars break if you hit something. i am sure if i had an AE B44 it would be broken, same with any 4wd. my XXX-4 breaks mostly when it hits the pipes at speed, and usually it is the hinge pin carrier on the front that snaps. i have had to replace front end parts due to wear more than breakage now that i can drive the car properly.

don't forget a good esc and motor, i picked up a Speed Passion 3600 with esc combo, awesome system, easy tuning! tons of power, makes my fried Novak system look like a wind up toy!

+1. The B44 is a great car. But parts support should be your number one driving factor in a 4WD. 4WD will break, it's not a matter of "if," it's a matter of "when."
