i raced 4whl mod for many years and trust me, it is more expensive than 2whl stock in every way.
i wonder how big the market would be if we had a choice between manufactureres as to what car to buy other than a losi or some fantastically expensive import? would nascar be popular if it were only fords or only chevys? i've always said 4wd would take off if hpi (because of their price point) or associated (because of their popularity) made a car...
