    1/10 2wd or 4wd for racing

    After seeing VB's constant barrage of awsome 1/10 racing I have been bitten by the bug again.

    My question is what would be the best buggy to start racing with? I'm not a novice to R/C but i have never raced before.

    I have had a dex 210 before and ran it on carpet track but never on the dirt. Mostly trashed around with my TLR eight buggy.

    I have been leaning towards a TLR 22 or a dex 210 but i like the way a 4wd grips and forgives.

    oops!.....haha

    If you'd like to stay within the Losi or Durango comfort zone then they both have 4WD offerings; Losi 22-4 and the DEX410 V5.

    But the winningest 4WD buggies at ARCR seem to be X-Ray, especially in the mod class

    Sweet

    So, do you reckon you'll go stock 17.5T or the mod class?....I've got a feeling that stock will be too tame for you. Not enough air time

    The car's looking good, mate. We just need a few sunny days now

    Do you have everything ready to go?....LiPo's, transponder etc.
