It's a great car. I'm very satisfied with the standard setup. For large jumps a stronger spring in front and rear is recommended. The first race with the bx will follow on 27th may.

That's the only complain I have as well. The dogbone lasts forever, but the outdrive (rear) don't last very long. makes you rebuild your rear diff frequent.

The buggy is super durable. I've been in a few crashes that BJ4, XXX4, Kyosho would definity break, but yokomo walks away in one piece.

Only if there is way to get a blade like touring car to work with yokomo, then it'll be a perfect 4wd. IMHO. Any ideas, or has anyone try it?

It's getting tough to choose a 4WD electric! This Yoko looks pretty sweet. I thought this video was neat.

The losi 4wd front and rear rims are a direct fit. You simply leave the hex off the rear axles. The front hex fits perfectly into a losi 4wd wheel. Both front and rear are legal width as well. (In case you were wondering)

Been running the MR4BX for almost 3 months now. The car is great and VERY durable. It's almost... almost impossible to brake it.

I only manage to brake an front arm, and rear shock tower so far. The reason I broke them is It tumbled from landing on the rear tower from a huge jump.... Compare to BJ4WE, which is also durable, but still can't touch MR4 in the department.

I personally would get a few sets of rear outdrives, couple Front bumpers, and double up on rear shock tower (It hasn't brake on me since I done it, about a month ago).

Great car, very happy with it.

Personally I think BJ4WE and BX are very close in term of performance, handling... etc.

Predator X10 is very good too, but you have to constantly working on it. Also, the front bullhead is too weak, it'll start to wobble after a few run,it wears prematurely.

Kyosho Lazer is very fast, at least the guy on our track driving it make it so. on average its .1 -.2 faster than MR4 and BJ4WE easy. unfortunally it also breaks very easily. Half of time the car don't make it to the end of the 5 min race.

Let me know how you compare them after you run it this weekend.
