I race one of these down at North Ryde, here in Sydney. If you want to
be competitive, the only choices are the RC10B4 or the Losi (I forget
what its called). I would say at North Ryde about 70% of competitors
run the Associated, with 25% Losi and a smattering of other types. You
can't go wrong with the Associated or the Losi for racing. Maybe the
Associated spares situation might be a little better here in OZ, dunno,
not much in it.



After deciding on the B4, your choice is whether to go for the RTR,
Team or Factory Team kit. I like to build so I would avoid the
RTR (I believe there is an RTR "Plus" now as well) but that's just me.
If you are going racing, the RTR is not a great choice because the
motor in it is not allowed in stock, and not competitive in mod. Of
course if you just want to muck around, then the RTR is probably fine.
And I suppose you could just swap to the appropriate motor for racing
if you wanted, and the price is pretty good. But my friend who started
racing with the RTR has so far replaced the motor, radio, bulkhead, and
drive shafts, so if you're racing, the RTR is not the bargain it seems.
Like I said, for just mucking about it is great value.



If you want to go for a kit (highly recommended) then I would recommend
the Team Kit to start with because the plastic parts are much more
resilient than the graphite parts in the Factory Team kit. Fine
for bashing, and if you want to race, it will be as competitive as your
skill allows. Builds like a dream and generally a good quality piece of
gear.



If you need more info, just ask.

hey mike


come back to nitro!!!

Not a chance mate! After being chucked off the St Ives track *again* .... Where I am in Sydney, if you want to race its electric first and daylight second. North Ryde only do electric due to the neighbours. Castle Hill race nitro stadium trucks but they get like four entries which is not much fun. St Ives run nitro stadiums, but you can only run on club days which means you can't practice. Also, they have a fairly rubbery set of rules - run 2wd against 4wd which is silly.


Also, I've found that for the amount of time I have to put into the sport, I can run three or more electrics for the same amount of time and moneyit took me to run one nitro.


And I found out a strange thing .... with the exception of top speed (and that only maybe!) my Team Orion V2 12x1 powered RC10T4 will totally kill any nitro I've owned, including my old Savage, T-Maxxand Inferno.


Although I have kept my nitro Rustler for some reason ..... maybe if/when the Racingline guys get that track going I might give it a run in truck racing. There *IS* something about nitro that's hard to get out of your system.


You still running the Inferno?
