not sure which 4wd to get ?:eh?:

racingdwarf
03-02-2011, 08:48 PM
Easy, cat sx, buy a new one, use it for 12months by this time it will be schumacher vintage as by this time the will have been 2 diffrent types and a new model:lol:

Kyosho FS mate, good solid car, seems to go well out of the box, would be my choice if I were doing more than one meeting with 4wd and didn't mind getting some more lipos;) ther was a couple of good ones in the for sale section last week

losi8rob
03-02-2011, 09:04 PM
i did get 3 more lipo's :p does the kyosho fs take stick or saddle ?:)

racingdwarf
03-02-2011, 09:21 PM
saddle mate, now the new sx is comming I don't think there are any 4wds running stick now, thats why I have bought and sx for maritime, I only have stick packs

Its gotta b a LAZER ZX5 SP. They r very cheap and very easy to maintain and they use stick packs . the sx is gr8 if u know what your doin, but a bit too complicated for me. Wereas the LAZER is very easy to set up, plus simon is he set up master on them. I run the sp n simon runs the fs, and at petit he used mine in his final and went just as quick as his fs.
you can have a drive of mine on d 13th n c if you like it.

If you find a 4wd U like but are not sure of anything i.e value for money or condition, stick a post on here n we will check it out 4 u...

racingdwarf
10-02-2011, 07:42 PM
No idea, never even had a go on one, but I think simon will tell you once he see's this;), also JCB had one for a short time if I remember right, both didn't keep them for long! they had B44's not .1's......Kyosho:wub or wait see what might appear from the TLR camp;)

seriously dude, kyosho are bullet proof, there is no better value 4wd, for a club basher than the Lazer zx5....... added bonus I run one, so spares are available, plus as u improve with it u can bling it right up. The B44 had a nickname "cheese car". not sure why, but would b the only 1 at the club, poss. spares from daves b4 box....
Lazer zx5 on ebay now currently 40 with 12hrs left

BARGIN. comes with some electrics, but rip em out n stick back on bay as they r crap, buggy is a gr8 startin point though...

no no i am still trying to choose between ae & kyosho :)

If that's the choice, go for the Kyosho, I had a B44 when it was new, total rubbish over bumps, think the NBC regional I did was the was time I used it.

Had a drive of a FS2, seemed a nice enough car, not brilliant, but better then the B44.

There are better cars around though;)

I liked my B44 and the drive train did over 3 years with very little maintenance as mine started life as an Atomic Carbon S44 then when LIPO and brushless came out it got converted back into a B44. Was well made, reliable, cheap spares that were easy to get hold of and had loads of space for the electrics unlike so many 4wd's at present.

It wasn't the best on bumpy tracks but it wasn't any worse than some of the other 4wd's about. The B44.1 has the new AE shocks which I think are a lot better and easier to build (although drilling a bleed hole in the shock cap of the originals made them simple to build consistently to, or you could buy Yokomo shock caps) and chassis now gives more ground clearance I think it says in all the blurb which will help.

Personally I'd go with which ever one you can get spares for easily as after all if you can't repair it you can't race it! .

Driven a couple of Kyosho's in the past and sometimes they felt brilliant and other times horrible. The B44 was consistently rubbish on a really bumpy track, but you used the same setup pretty much everywhere and you knew what it was going to do.

Hi

yer i am starting to get concerned:(.weather forcast not to good.

But the thing is the track is normaly quite good as it drains like a dream, the only thing that normaly stops us is if it is raining to hard to stand on the rostrum etc, pitting no probs as we can go inside.

I am away from pc tonight so will just have to see what people want to do. can be called anytime on 07768 316440

will post on here 8am tmro with a sorta plan

Forecast seems mixed from what I can see.

Don't mind the odd shower, but anything consistent or heavey I'd rather head to Kellers in the evening.


Guess we'll just have to see what happens when tomorrow arrives!


Chris and Dave, I'll bring your spares along tomorrow too.

Is pretty wet here, although not raining. Must admit I'd prefer to race at Kellers later on today, at least we'll be assured of some racing and won't end up soaked!

13-02-2011, 08:56 AM
Sun is trying to poke through here and the cloud has lifted, so we might get a splash from a passing low cloud but not soaked.

racingdwarf

Just wanted to say how much i enjoyed the racing today, helped by the super friendly & laid back atmosphere.

Thanks to those who let me borrow more suitable tyres, offer advice on settings & carried out some extra battery charging (not to mention those who managed to find my missing MadRat front spring & lowercup out on the track !) cheers guys :thumbsup:

I was so pleased with how my humble TT EB-2 perfomed throughout, without any hitches or breakages, just a clean up needed & maybe a new aerial, lol.

I may have been bitten by the bug :D

Was an enjoyable day, although I still need some more grip on the NBC grass and mud :(

Was nice to see some new faces to.

I'll update the NBC website sometime this week with the new race fee's, and some results if we can work out who finished where as I have no idea :confused:
