Default Rb6 or b4.2. Rear or center

I'm more of a nitro guy but was thinking of running some 2 wheel. What do you guys think b4 or rb6? What do you like and why? What do you notice with the mid motor vs rear. Look forward to your opinions

Thanks!

if your a nitro guy like I am. I suggest rear motor to start out with. Rear motor you can drive it harder and push the car more with out upsetting it

I personaly love my b4 but the rb6 just won the worlds. It depends on what you want and your driving style

I have ran both the rb6 and the b4.2, for me the rb6 is the far better car. I have 2 rb6 cars one in mid and one in rear. When the bit (traction) is good I prefer the mid car, it gets through the corners faster. When the track is loose I run the rear motor. I am running both in the 17.5 blinky class. Most of the b4.2 guys at the track I race at have converted to the 22 2.0, I have not ran one so I can't tell you how it compares.

Depends on your track and your local support. At our track most people run AE, I have been approached a few times after a run with tips on setup changes without even asking with my B4.2

I'd say b4.2 mid/rear depends on track. but the price of the rb6 just turns me right off
