B44 with a sensored brushless system is a good start...

This if you like saddles and saddle lipo's !!!



This if you like stick packs and lipo's !!!




These cars are just excellent quality and the shock dampers are second to none in this price range !

from what i understand saddles tend to give better balance. sticks put the weight all on one side and you hope your electronics equal it out well enough.


yes nimh....and as big as you can afford....least thats what i would get as your going to be running a very low turn motor (4wd runs a good bit lower than 2wd) and its going to pull more juice...

unless u can find a new xx4WE and some spare parts, go with the 44 on trakpowers. BL wise, well guess would be a LRP on ur choice of motor. that or a castle setup (will end up being legal in 2009). no more than a 5700 there, even a 4600 would be a good thing. only holdup is that castle has to make their motors servicable (ie roar can look inside). castle is ready for this and the stuff will be out there soon. all dependin on what u wanna do.
