I still have my FT B4 and my XXX-4 but with the old 3800 nimh packs and orion revolution motors. What classes are you guys running up there? I am interested in getting back into all of this but need to know what the heck to buy. I was looking at the RC8BE but if you guys are running classes for which I already have vehicles it will definitely help my bank account!

Is there any advice you guys can give me as far as equipment goes? I still have my Airtronics M11 w/ spektrum, airtronics 94357 servos, and my 2 vehicles.
Sounds like you just need to get some 2cell Lipo batteries. I had some nimh batteries from when I raced 7 years ago that didn't take a charge at all, and a brushless system for your B4. Like Ryan said, we have a pile of 4x4 Short course trucks and the 2wd is getting big too. and now there is 7 (8 if you come) in the 2wd buggy class!
