If you race at bumps i guess a B4 or a losi.

I prefer the Kyosho but Bumps has no parts for them. I think your best bet is to try them out.

Like RB said XXX-Cr and B4's work great at Bumps as the top few guys run these cars and prove they are fast. Part support is good as well.

The RB5 is the up and coming car and works well to but with no parts at the track so you would need to carry extra parts. Not a problem as I run the GV2and carry my own parts so it isn't a problem if you have a few extra bucks to stock up on some parts.

You can make any car work as it comes down to the driver. Tebo has shown the RB5 can easily run with the big guns running for Losi and Associated so you know the car in the right hands is competitive.

The X-6 B4 mid engine conversion is another car that over the years has worked well at Bumps. IF you wanted something a little different. It uses B4 parts and then you get their conversion chassis, transmission case, rear shock tower and toe in blocks. Prety neat car.

Well RC10B4 is cheaper and turns well out the box and is a little les fragile, however I prefer the XXX-CR as it has all sorts of adjustments and can turn better when the rear camber link is set to 4-B and front is set to 2-A
I mainly picked XXX-CR for titanium shocks and front carbon fiber shock tower.
Both are good, I just prefer the XXX-CR for adjustment purposes

good luck

The Losi xxx-cr is the most common buggy you will find at Bumps.

Thanks for the replies guys. Any upgrades needed on the xxx-cr for durability issues?

I guess that depends on your driving skills, but for the most part I guess I'll give you the typical answer. Bearing carriers, caster blocks, all A-arms, shock towers, and a front bulk head. That's what I'd go with. Any thing after that, you just need to slow down. If your still a rookie I would try to start out in the stock class, because the slower you go the less you break. Not only that, but you can really get a good idea for how the car feels, instead of just powering through it.

But like I said I don't know your skill level.
