What is the best 4wd 1/10 buggy?

What is the best 4wd 1/10 buggy? Truggy? I'm leaning towards the TEAM LOSI XXX-4 G+ 4WD Buggy Kit.. But I don't know ANYTHING about belt -drive systems. I have a Associated T4 stadium truck. I also have a hopped-up Tamiya Dark impact that I'm selling on ebay. I have a bunch of 7-cell stick packs that I want to use

I would check out the Associated B44. You can't go wrong with Losi either. I would go with the one that the lhs has the most support for. Kyosho also makes a sweet 4wd buggy.

leaning towards the Losi.........

Hey Ben! I'm leaning towards the Losi mostly because I have so many "stick" battery packs that are almost brand new! I just want to find out more about the belt drive system. I gotta sell the Tamiya first.....!

Have used both belt and shaft buggys.

Belt is ok but it is not as strong and reliable as shaft drive.
some companies are goig back to shaft drive like kyosho with the new LazerSP.
B44 is a good car too. i think any choice you will enjoy.

I just prefer shaft :-)

Losi and Associated have been in competition for years, I have owned both for years and Losi has always had the most durable and better design in r/c. I have had no problems with my xx4 although it is vintage and belt driven.
