Now that's a very good question.

what about beginner off-road kits? I'm out of the RTR stage but only have played around with on-road stuff, looking for a first race kit...thought I should try something other than than the B5M so I'm looking to a 22 3.0, XB2, or RB6...which of these is more beginner friendly as far as build and setup?

IMO they're as friendly or as complicated as you make it. They're all good, and for club level racing, you can win every time with any of those. Doing lots of research on tuning tips and some driving and testing yourself will net you the best results with any of them.

truth...im leaning toward as 22 3.0 since just coming out and I like the wide chassis for electronics/battery layout options...I was previously going to get a B5M lite or wait to see how the Hotbodies D216 looks, I'm just worried about being a beginner at off road and having a carbon fiber chassis...

I would not be worried about a carbon fiber chassis. I have never broken one. Good thing about carbon is it would break instead of slightly bending like aluminum. Makes it easy to know if you need a new one. I highly doubt it would be an issue. I'm leaning toward a new HB. Time to switch it up from the B5m.

I agree with you, I just hope there will be parts available for the HB.
