Hey all: Looks like there are some nice 1/10th 4wd buggies in the works from Kyosho ,TLR ,Team C , HB and the looooong talked about X-Factory X-7. All these companies have good reputations ,but since these are all fairly new it will take some fine tuning from these companies before we really get a good idea on any of them. Also just like with any type of rc vehicle to really judge who is best you need to take into account how widely available these cars and parts for them will be and not just what their overall performance is. What good is having the quote unquote best car out there if you can't keep it on the track. This may not answer your question but hope it helps

IMO the Losi looks like an overly complicated design for no real reason. Losi stuff is also plain ugly if looks matter to you. Sorry Losi guys If running on dirt I'd suggest not running belt drive, but for carpet racing the Schumacher 4WD belt driven buggies are great. Very nice handling kits.

I tried a Yokomo BMAX4 III myself and I found it to be fast and handle well, but was far too fragile in several areas. The Xray XB4 is a solid kit and worth a look or the Caster SB10 is very durable but not good for beginners as setups are still being perfected and played around with. Overall I'd go with the Schumacher for indoors or Xray for outdoors or if running on both surfaces.

When Kyosho updates their platform I'm positive it'll become the new winning platform, but until then...
Kyosho MP9 TKI3 || FX Royal 5K w/2108 || Futaba 4PLS || Futaba S9352HV servos
Yokomo B-MAX4 III || Orion VST2 6.5T || Orion R10 Pro || Futaba 4PLS || Savox servos
