that's an easy one... the market for 1/10th scale 4wd buggy is very small. the market for 1/18th scale bashers is huge. racers make up a very small percentage of the rc market, and racers are pretty much the only people crazy enough to buy a car that a) costs more to buy, b) requires more maintenance, c) costs more to maintain, d) costs more in regards to batteries and motors.

i raced 4whl mod for many years and trust me, it is more expensive than 2whl stock in every way.
