Just look one thread down ....LOL

The ZX-5 has gotta be one of the hottest new cars on the market! Only needs one upgrade from what I've been reading. Car is priced @ $300 shipped.

Here is a list:

Full kits:

BJ4
Academy SB Sport, RTR, or Pro Model
Losi XXX-4
Losi XX-4 Worlds Edition Rerelease
Kyosho ZX5
X-Factory X5 full kit
Predator X-10
Tamiya Gravel Hound

Conversions:
TC3-O V2
X-Factory X5 conversion for XX-4 and XXX-4


There may be more but those are the ones I know about. Yokomo also has a buggy in the works and Academy will have the new SB V2 out in the spring.

I would recommend that you review there features, make a list of known issues and pick from there so you can make an informed decision.

Right now, I would say the hottest buggy on the market as far as flying off the shelves probably would be the new Kyosho ZX5. For the money,you get alot of buggy in the package including that oneway setup which usually is extra dollars on the other buggies.

The Predator vehicle on one site has a pretty good deal going on that you get a really nice ESC and the buggy for I think around $500? not sure how much the ESC is worth, but it says it retails for $169 and has no motor limit.

If you are wanting to get in cheaper, the Academy SB Sport and RTR are nice packages, and with a few upgrades with still keep the vehicle under $200 you can be all set. Ultimatehobbies sells the vehicle for $145 shipped last I checked and the Pro version for $224 shipped.

Wheels between the Kyosho ZX5 and Academy SB should be compatible as well.

yeah cool i seen the kyosho zx5 it look's ice and i like the losi xxx-4 cuz of the graphite aswell as it's a nice buggy i had a swap organised for a xx-4we and accesorie's for my rtr xb8 nitro 1/8 and a losi xx-cr roller for an rb engine and xx-4we speedoe's servo batts etc.
the person in question was all willing to swap and mention and be of great help but when it came to the crunch i get no answer it was time for him to show pic's of the stuff he mentioned but still no reply.............very sad and disapointing indead. unless he got a bad case of finger itis preventing him from typing and sending pic's lol which im sure is not the case anyhow do you know anyone who want's an xb8 rtr or with an xx-4we,xx-4 g or xxx-4, that may want a xb8 nitro?

for your items, probably just sell it on ebay.

As for the AE buggy thing, AE doesn't make a 4wd electric buggy. JConcepts makes one that uses AE and losi parts and is driven by alot of AE drivers. It won the Worlds and a new version is about to come out.

Just get a Predator X10. I use to have a BJ4 and a YOK and I can tell you the best car I've ever had is the Predator X10. It's awesome I just love this thing. Go to the website and have a look www.ttechracing.com.
