Default I would recommend

a BJ-4. It 's fast and good looking. Myself, I drive an XX-4 but love to say the word BJ over and over. Hehe, just kidding. Okay, seriously, you must drive them all to be able to pick one. Later.

My X10 is the best car I've ever had. By way the fastest. Before I had a BJ4, and before that a YOK. I'm a total Pred fan now. Cant wait for the Touring Car.

rember though

if u live in the US

there is a long wait for parts

most places dont stock stuff for the x-10

or the wheels, u have to buy the special wheels

but if u live in the UK

it should be easier to find parts

(i dono i live in VA/us)

but other than that its a aome-awe car!

If parts aren't a problem I would go with the kyosho because its much easier to clean up. Belt drive cars need to be broken down and completely cleaned out between races.

I have to agree with nsr250repsol, I raced 4wds on dusty tracks for years and didn't need to rebuild the car after every meeting.

Even the "open" belt layouts of the old Yokomo's and Schumachers would run efficiently for a number of race days without problems.
