This may be the most civil thread on Losi or AE I've ever read. Very good, balanced points by all. At the track I race, it's a mixed bag between Losi and AE with a few Kyosho thrown in. Some of the races have switched from one brand or another depending on what their friends are racing; so it's easier to swap/borrow parts. That should indicate that they are pretty equal in quality.

Front and rear arms, steering knuckles, c-hubs and wing mounts I would definitely have on hand, along with some rear inner hinge pins. If you have the factory team version, replace the aluminum axles with steel. I have seen quite a few of the aluminum axles break, I always replaced mine with steel from the get go. Eventually you will want spares for everything, you never know what you will break.

actually i'd say if u like to flog your car around the track, go with the losi. if ur the more reserved 'driving instructor' brake then turn type person (myself), then the b4 might be the choice for you.

funny....i run a losi (although i have a rb5 coming, see what thats like).

I run a 3 Oz. li-po plate under my li-po to bring the weight back up to the same as running a 6 cell nimh pack. Mainly because all the set-up info out there is based on nimh weight. Plus I run alot of roar rules races where you have to weigh in at a certain weight.without the weight my car is around 1-3/4 oz light, with the weight I am 1-1/4 Oz over weight.

B4 for smooth clay tracks and losi for blown out outdoor tracks. Also if your running on carpet where its smooth go for the b4
