guys... I need some advice. I picked up a b4.1 worlds kit and I'm debating if I want to keep it or sell it and buy a ft 2wd sc10. I bought the b4 to try out 1/10 buggy but I'm thinking it will not suit my driving style. Plus while driving my 4wd sc10, I feel like they will be two very different vehicles and make it harder for me. I've learned that driving two different cars like during a race day, makes me very inconsistent and I don't race well. I haven't built the b4 yet and would like to make my decision in time to enter either car in the winter series.

What are your thoughts?

I was also thinking of maybe seeing if someone will let me wheel their 2wd buggy to see if I would really like it.

Thanks guys for any input or advice

Thanks Matt, I've heard it's a hard class to run and I did try it before once at Bumps. I'm thinking I'll build it and if I don't like it, I'll sell it and pick up the 2wd sct. I doubt I will be able to get it built by this sunday and so I'll just have it up and running for the point series on november 4th.

I'm used to it.. What is a good motor to start out with? I think I might need something "calmer" so that I can learn and not have too much power.
