The Associated RTR wheels are like a rock, they wouldn't crack if you hit them with a hammer. They do produce truck rims, but not buggy, I wonder why. I actually kind of liked building AE shocks, and hated building Losi shocks. I guess since you can have a bleeding screw on the AE's its just easier to get the right amount of oil.

Just wondering what was the B3's competitor back then? The BK1 or the XX-CR? Im guessing the CR but were they that close in comp. like the B4 and BK2 are?

Finally ran the losi, and got better lap times (best ive done actually). the losi feels as if it wants to tip over some times. some more springs and set up, i should get better lap times (hopefully). So after running both, i would say either car is good, whatever you pick you should be able to do good with it !! Go Losi, Go AE!

myk505- sounds like ur to soft then, or you could adjustyour camber postion... that will also help.... i'd prolly try the camber postions first just because its easy and lot quicker then rebuilding shocks...

[QUOTE=JoshR 85]. the cool think is that you can adjust the width of the car in front and rear for narrow or wide....[QUOTE]

the extra holes arnt to widen or narrow the car, they just change the effective length of the arms with out moveing the wheels in or out.....

both are great cars...you just have to pick the one that best fits your driving style
