Bloody hell, its close to a regional to jump to a new car! Youve left a good car, to go to another good car that handles differently, it may suit your driving.

I will only be racing 2wd at the regional ! Haven't got a bj4 yet cannot even find one lol only reason I am getting rid of pred is it's to temprimental and expensive to fix ! Didn't mind how it handled
I want a car that I can race without worrys like my b4 which never breaks I just race it
I think I am going to get an x6 as well not sure just yet

BJ4 isnt the only car out there though, have a look around. I wouldnt be buying a BJ4 if I was getting a new car. There's loads out there Id consider...... B-MAX, TRF511X, B44.

I'd agree with chris, try a few cars before buying, what suits one person doesn't suit another.

If you want a car for the regional, I'm sure I'll have one you can use or somebody else will have.

I wouldn't mind a Lending a car if anyone has one !
I fancy a BJ4 but I cannot find one anywere can you buy them as a conversion for a b44 ?
I am after a x6 as well can you still getthe old x6 ie non squared ?

If you want a Bj4 your better off getting a B44, basically same car but parts availability is much much better as almost nowhere stocks bj4 parts now...:( There are no conversions for bj4 to b44 vice versa etc

As others have said if you can try several peoples cars if they let you before you decide to buy as you could much prefer one car to many others.

Regarding the X6 non squared theres usually one in the forsale section I think someone is selling a conversion with few bits forsale now, otherwise ring dms-racing and they will let you know if they have any of the non-squared kits still.

Tim get a BJ4 and then its only about 20 worth of mods to get it running sweet... B44 are china toys compared with BJ's....

Keep an eye open on here, theres always ones about.

And dont listen to that chris pattinson telling you to go Tamiya. Even Packs B44 lashed him last week....

Dont forget BJ's Best....

b44 and bj4's look the same to me but I have not put to next to each other to tell.
So what is the difference ?

Well I pushed him to the line, with a knackered speedo (only about 50% power and speed), so 'twas nothing to do with the car.

Speaking of which, anyone got a spare speedo for the regional???

If you're going for shaft drive (is it wise???) I'd seriously look at a BMAX. In fact, Im seriously looking at a BMAX.

Yokomo rubish. Wouldn't look at them. Stick to the BJ4 and you'll not go far wrong...

Personally, I think the Yokomo stuff Ive had is some of the finest RC gear.

And its Euro champ and won is leading the UK national championship.... not that rubbish!

What has a BJ4 won....anything?

Looked at the bmax and it is a entry level type car BUT like chris says it is winning stuff ! It's cheap I think
I have also read up on the b44 and it's basically a copy with some minor improvements of the bj4 ? Didn't know that but I am not saying the b44 is better I don't know much as I haven't tryied any. The b44 spares are stocked everywere ! Were as a bj4 parts are not
Might do some more Reading into the bmax but still fancy a b44

Yes, just do that Tim, Im sure shock setup is nearly the same as a B4, its a BJ4 Chris' spare car.

If you're feeling adventurous I have a CAT 2000 here.

And Im actually talking myself into trying a B-Max here.

Chris P. Stick with the Tam. You are flying!!

Tim. If you want the spare car you can use it no probs but if i break a chassis your car is the donor!!
It hasnt got the secret setup on though!

dayxwalker

If I break it I will pay for any of the bits or I will order the bits for you ! Less hassle for you ! Only thing is I am on hol this week so will not be there on tue but if you took it along on sat (regional). I will just put it together on the sat between rounds of 2wd. Cheers !

The bmax is 250 notes with the champ pack so it's not that cheap ! It looks very plastic but it must go well and everyone says it does ! Spares may be difficult tho. I could get a b44 or bj4 for 80-130 ish second hand

Thing is Tim if you go for a yokomo or any car that nobody races at our club your going to struggle alot with setups. If you get a B44 or BJ4 then there is pleanty of other drivers to offer setup advice and experience...

I have a spare BJ4 minus a top deck so no worries if any of the Team need any major parts.. :thumbsup:

chris68nufc
18-05-2009, 07:20 PM
Ive got a couple of top decks so we should all be able to break one with no worries. Im grafting late this week to see if i can make it at all to the regional. Im not bothered cos im a National driver now!!
