Both are very good and well proven. Losi is a little easier to drive, B4 is sharper and more precise. Most will tell you the Losi is more durable with longer lasting shocks that are easier to work with. If one has better local parts support where you are then that's the car you should buy. Both are fast.

As mentioned both are great buggies , both very competitive , and both can be winners in the right hands . Buy whichever your track and hobby shop have better parts support for .


Each take a different driving style so one might be better or worse then the other for you . Go to the track and see if someone will let you make a few laps with each car . If you ask I`m sure they will let you , I don`t know a racer that wouldn`t want to help someone get into racing .

Don't worry about your English, even the British butcher the language!

On the track, who can tell which is the better buggy in YOUR hands.

The best way to decide on what buggy to buy is to go to the track you'll race at, and see whats the most popular car. The most popular car will more than likely be well supported by the closest hobby shop, so you'll have spare parts readily available. You'll also have the support of your fellow racers.

I like my Team Associated B4, but I'm sure that in my hands an XXX would be just as fast(or slow)

Thats a kick in the nuts


I like my B4 though. I put Cav's CRCRC setup on it. I like it a lot. Turns on a dime and pretty durable for my driving

You can't go worng with a Tq racing SX10 I run the truck and a freibd of mine runs the buggy, both are really durable we have not broke a part on our cars.

The cars are cheep and so are parts.

Forget which is better, it is totaly opinion. They are both great buggies, one not better then the other. Both have there stong points and weak points. Chose the one that fits your driving style and parts support for your area. I as a matter of fact just finished building a new FTB4.1 today, that is what I like, that is all. The Kyosho SP2 is sweet as well. I think shocks are better then both Associate and Losi, but my opinion only. You will not go wrong with either of the two.

Seems there canít be that much difference, most any big race has examples of both in the A. Top drivers that move back and forth appear to do about the same with either best I can tell.

Here in Michigan AE and Losi. Have nothing on our Tq racing cars. Kyosho is the same. Tq racing and Kyosho are the fastes cars in MI. The tracks here are loam bumpy tracks. The Tq cars are even better on high grip tracks.

Also I'm not a Tq racing driver, so i'm not just saying this.

There are a few guys running TQ at my track , very nice cars and thinking of getting one to try myself .



Cars do not win races , drivers do ! Everyone with this brand is faster and this brand wins , B.S. , it is the drivers not the cars .
