Default b4.2 vs tlr 22

I haven't been able to find many threads on this so I figured I would start one, what do you think of the tlr22 vs the b4.2? I wouldn't mind trying the 22 but I am an associated guy, and I know I like my b4.1 lol

22 all the way. Much stronger and in my opinion just hooks up better on most tracks and the smoothest car out there to me right next to the Kyosho.

I disagree. With 22 you have to drive it a lot harder to go fast. With the b4 you can just carve the corner a lot better. I personally like the b4 a lot more compared my old 22. The b4 is just as strong as the 22 unless you purposely hit something. Both cars are good you just need to drive them completely different.

I can't see that you could have looked very hard, because there's got to be a million of these "brand loyalty/devotee" type of threads all over this forum.
And if you like your B4.1 so much I don't understand why you're asking, or really care.

both are really good buggies. I think you'd be happy with either, but both do have very different handling characteristics.
do both have their short comings? yes.
do they both work really well for people? yes.
how is your parts support?

Tlr 22 takes at least 100 bucks in aluminum upgrades to make up to par with the b4.2.

You mean "takes at least 100 bucks in aluminum upgrades to have as much bling needed to hold the b4.2 together"???

Buy both in RTR version, drive them, then buy an RB6! j/k

But seriously, either one would work well. I've seen 22's whoop on B4's and vice versa. Some say that there are differences in the handling, but on the two cars I tried, both felt the same (i.e. "Hooked up").

Good luck!

I'm a firm believer if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all, or in this case if you cannot offer a valid opinion then no need to post bashing a newbie on the site.......

I only said it in response to the guy that said, "Tlr 22 takes at least 100 bucks in aluminum upgrades to make up to par with the b4.2" that created the "false assumption."

Funny, I didn't have a single aluminum "upgrade" on my 22. I did well with the car, and for the year I ran it I only broke a few parts.

Really it comes down to being a good driver, both cars are competitive. Don't expect to go any faster with a different car. If you go slow and crash with a B4, you will go slow and crash with a 22.

Like others have said, there are hundreds of threads about X vs. Y and they are the same. This thread is just like the rest of them.

Pick a car, and run it. If you need help with it, go to the thread for that car.

22 - high quality materials, very good fitment, terrible steering rack, very fragile diff screw and thrust washers, threaded holes on plastic chassis components are very easy to strip, requires additional purchases right out of the box

b4.2 - low quality materials, poor fitment, expect lots of broken arms, conventional steering rack, screws secured with nuts, requires additional purchases right out of the box

both of these money pits are capable of winning races. as usual, the driver is 99% of the performance.
