Thinking about a new kit...

Probably buy/build in November or December.

What would you all recommend?

4WD (CAT SX2 or B44)

or

Short Course (SC10FT)

Hey Jake,
I would recommend the B44 or the SC10FT if you're gonna buy a new kit. If you're willing to buy a used car, Stephen Maizer's car would be a good choice.

You can't go wrong with a SC truck, it's always a fun class to run, and there's always good competition.

I would personally go with the B44.1

Interesting to note, the length is 7mm longer, the wheelbase is 3mmm shorter

And the final drive ratio is listed as 2.6:1 (the current B44 is 2.5:1)

Other than the thicker front tower and 2.6 fdr ( I assume thats why the length is longer), my current car is better!

I am curious how they got "increased ground clearence" with the new chassis...
