Xray is the obvious choice atm. Proven durability and performance.

I would expect that the new Tekno will be taking into account current racing trends for whatever they make. I wouldn't be surprised to see as options at least things that could be useful in both spec racing as well as carpet racing, assuming the initial vehicle is oriented to outdoor usage.

The big thing in general i have seen with 4wd vehicles these days is that they are significantly more durable than what we used to have. Keep that trend going please

I do hope that for HB sake they look into some updates as the car is really good. Give it a nice facelift like exotek has from the aftermarket could be great, especially a slipper setup.

Honestly it all comes down to personal preference. KYOSHO, TLR, XRAY, HB, YOKOMO, SWORZ, SCHuMACHER, TD, SERPENT, CASTER, TAMIYA all have Comp. wheelers. Thus again it comes down to what works best for you.

Another vote for x-ray, I got the 16 and it's a tank. 8 races so far and not 1 broken part. I'm new to this hobby and race at a track w/ metal jumps/landings so I've put it to the test. It's the easiest buggy to work on which is a big plus for me. Parts aren't cheap but they are very high quality that fit/wear well.

like I said earlier, the best wheeler is the one that you own and drive cleanly with... I think the question "what is the best wheeler" is entirely to broad. A better question is "which wheeler is easiest to work on? " or "which wheeler required the least maintenance or repair for you last season? "...something more specific.

Well if anything with that buggy it is parts support and depending were you live and race at its not that popular compared to HB, AE, Losi 4wd buggys.

Easyiest to work on i wouldn't say HB, Losi or any belt driven buggy are it does help a good bit with a drill driver though . I own a D413 and getting to the Front and Rear diffs are a bit of a pain not the center really i don't think. Wear wise i don't think the D413 is that bad Losi not sure of Xray proberty the best .

Strongest for sure HB and Xray.

Xray and i believe AE are the easyiest to work on.

whichever one your local track/shop stocks parts for.

Honestly the only way the hobby/tracks survive is if you spend time and money at them.

The way everything is on backordered not sure it would make a difference right now. But yes if you have a LHS or local track which i don't i do buy some small stuff though if its reasonably priced there.

Well the easiest wheeler on maintenance, hands down is the Durango dex410v5. The center diff comes out by removing a "pin". Front and rear diffs are 4 screws take the cover off and the diff housing comes out with the driveshaft.. It literally takes me less than 10 minutes to take a diff out, change oils and get it in the track.

That's about it... the car is either middle of the road or mediocre on everything else.... durable but is kinda middle of the road. Parts and setup support is way beyond mediocre..... that's my opinion not an actual fact. I do own the car and how the car performs in the track kinda makes it up for all the downfalls.

Anyone that thinks one is better than the rest is delusional. LOL! Someone spiked the kool-aid. I bet I could get a bunch of them and have the same result.
