both of these money pits are capable of winning races. as usual, the driver is 99% of the performance.
I strip more plastic on the B4. The 22 I didn't have any trouble with stripping parts. I agree with everything else you mentioned.

To the OP, buy the 22 try it for a month or two to get it tuned and see if you like it. That's the only way you will know. Trying somebody else s car doesn't really do it justice. If you dont like it go back to your B4.

shiny penny my butt. That is like $200 more, plus the upgrades to fix the durability issues, plus all of the rb5 parts to narrow it and make it handle better. I am sure its a nice car and i would buy a used one that is already upgraded, but the new price is silly.
