Another thing is you would rather break cheaper parts that are easy to replace than more expensive harder to replace stuff. Stock arms are fairly cheap.

When the 5IVE-T came out, that put a big hurt on the 5B.

Love my new Baha SC. I think it is preferable to the 5ive T in many ways. My buddy who owns a 5ive T is giving my Baha some jealous looks (as it's trying to catch it!).

Two wheel drive. I don't know if it's better, it just has some options that are more thought out than the Losi. The engine, same cc, is stronger, it's lighter and more agile, the overall design and layout are better in my opinion and the body clips are brilliant. I can get the cover on and off, completely, in about 10 seconds. The Baha dusted my buddy's 5ive T in the sand pits today. It's probably the lighter weight. The losi seems to prefer hard surface where they'd be pretty even. I thought I'd miss 4wd but I'm finding this more fun to drive in the places I like to bash. Here's a video of the baha running today. Sorry for the lower quality iPhone video.

Good points and thanks for posting the video.

I think where the 5IVE-T would have the Baja is on a racetrack where the benefits of 4WD come into play. Its 5IVE-T's handling is also quite good too.

I agree. 4wd is way easier to control. Both are great, fun trucks.
