dont even bother with a car for that price. Save and get a better car and u wont be dissapointed. A duratrax evader buggy would be ok. but a bit more expensive. are u racing or bashing

You can find used Team B4 rollers for $US90-100 in the for sale forum which is equivalent to around $AU120 without shipping.

Were you looking for a RTR?

Try to get whats most popular at your local track.. That way you have a good parts source and set up tips.

I've heard that the regular B4 is a tank. Being a buggy and being plastic, why not?

I have found that the XXXS is the best for offroading.


I have run a XXXT, a XXX, and a JRX Pro SE, and though I am a little biased towards Losi's, the B4 is also a strong runner. The decision will likely come down to preference and parts support. You may decide that the XXX is stupid, and that you don't like the color of the wheels, who knows. Ask around, and look for the parts support, and the decision will be easy.

XXX-4 you mean? The XXX-S is the on-road tourer.
