He is talking about 10th scale 4wd electric.

As you know Nick, I loved my Kyosho ZX-5 SP.

You cannot really go wrong with any of them. The biggest decision you have to make is saddle packs or stick packs. If you want sticks then the ZX-5 SP, the academy buggy and the XXX-4 are the ones you have to chose from. If you go saddle packs then the Kyosho ZX-5 FS, B44 and the Hot Bodies D4 are the top choices.

I don't think you can go wrong with pretty much any of the current crop of 4wd 1/10 scale buggies out there. if the class was ran out here, i would love to get another Academy SBV2 pro to drive.

any one of the 4wd's on the market that you can buy parts for are all good.you have to look at what you want a belt or a shaft drive,do you want to walk in and buy parts from a hobby shop or order online. your going to get 10 different answers just do your home work and you will get the one you want

I know the guys in England (on OOple) have had theirs for like a week now!! No body, tires or wing. Like a touring car. Also, apparently its a lot less lipo friendly than the 501--the lipo cannot be as tall as the top decks get in the way.

I know, I was just messing.

Can't go wrong with the B44. I would think of all the 4WD buggies, it is probably the most supported by tracks with parts.

All good.

No 10th scale electrics are well supported in our area. 8th scale dominates everything around here.
