Default best 4wd buggy for stick pack style LIPO

Hey guys,

just asking a general question here. I have a saddle pack buggy now, DF03, and it works well, but stick pack lipo's are usually cheaper, and easier to get, plus they are more easily used in parallel in a 1/8th that i also have.

For the sake of argument, what would be a good 1/0th stick pack style buggy to have so that i could swap packs back and forth?

Kyosho makes one, then there is the new cyber b10, what else is out there?

thanks, !

The original BJ4 is a real good option

DF03 is, but mine is not.



tamiya db01 is a favorite of mine, always a fan of tamiya stuff.

since i have the MM and4600, i was looking for a nice chassis to handle that power load.

If I had cash to blow I would have gotten the new Schumacher. So I bought a used XXX-4 G+ instead for less than 1/4 the cost.
