4wdrc.com is for 1/10th electric wheelers. All the news and pix of 4-WD that we can get. We'd especially like input from both coasts and overseas -- send stuff to the E-mail address listed on the 4wdrc site.

Cool stuff! I'll be placing a pre-order for that X5 after I get moved into my house in a few weeks. Going to wait since I don't know what my address will be yet.

I heard from one of the local racers at my track that you can only get a durango if you're a factory driver.... he even called up the people in europe and had to speak german to try to order one, but couldn't... is this true and why so??? i would like to get a durango and try it out, because no one has it out by me cept mayb 2 guys if we could get it.

Looking at the chassis it looks alittle tight for electronics. Seems they could have opening it up alittle more on the front and you could run a larger ESC than something along the size of a quantum.

At least some guys are trying to get more 4wd running. With the new 19turn spec classes going on, 4wd would be great addition to the 19 turn craze. You get faster than stock but don't scare away the guys who are still alittle new with the price of mod.

go to that site, they have pics of the chassis there.

It looks very interesting and probably will work well. Only thing is the body isn't the best looking thing in the world, though some of the bodies I saw for the tc3-0 don't look that hot either.

Since I am an AE guy, I may have to look into 4wd this summer if the opportunity to run in the dirt comes up. Not sure what vehicle though, the TC3-0 looks good as does the BJ4x4 vehicle, but the price range right now is alittle prohibitive on both considering one is $200 for the conversion and the other will be in the $500 range.

If they could get the price range to around $250 to $350, they could have a winner.

Thanx Cain, i'm also looking into getting a 4x4, but yeah i'm also a ae guy. the body on the x5 is better then the new durango from ae though. that body is just ugly. i would actualy like to get the new BJ4x4. i don't know if my lhs will get any of this though because they mainly just get losi 4x4's though, and nobody will really be interested in it, cept me and few other people but that's not really enough i think. i'll ask tonight when i go to race to see if they could look into it.

From what I understand the parts that break on the vehicle are the ones you can get that work with the B4 or other manufacturers.

The BJ4X4 looks great though.
