Default 4WD

Everyone will just tell you the brand of car they run is the best so here goes.
The Team C TM4 is the best out of the box 4WD car! Why? Because you get all you need in the box and don't need to add anything to make it a very competitive and easy to drive and setup car. It is also one of the best value for money kits available. I'm sure there will be plenty of people who will say XB4, YZ4, K2 etc etc but from what I am seeing they all need some vital upgrades to get the best out of them where as the TM4 comes with it all.
Just my opinion of course.

My son's 7yrs and just bought a Schumacher K2, he's normally high up in club D finals. Since he got the K2 he's won all his heats and won the C final twice out of two race nights.

It doesn't need anything buying to be fast, just a few alloy bits to make it a lot stronger. Nothing wrong with it out of the box. It a properly good car, massive leap in his performance over his dex410v4

Default My thoughts

Just got a XB4 2016, not the cheapest, but built like a tank(believe me tested that and seen it tested, last round at Worksop Indoors masters, ask Steve Pierce). Has lots of adjustment out of box for anti squat, rear toe, can also adjust front width etc all by using different inserts, all included in kit.

I like the car a lot and I have tried quite a few.

Pay ya money and take a chance, every car is a good one in the correct hands, plenty of setup help for most of them.

Goodluck

Yes it is. Build the car and race it, what's not out of box about that? I chose some alloy options because the kids races can be brutal. Our choice.

I loved my Bmax4, straight from the box was amazing.

The K2 is good but as I haven't driven any more recent kits then can't say if it's the best.

Another vote for bmax 4 iii, I recently purchased a yz4 but I feel like I need to purchase a bunch of extras before it will be as good as the bmax was

I'm liking the b44.3, first run using kit set up made me feel really confident driving it. two mods to make it better but not essential are j concepts steering to take away servo saver and rpm front arms to add in some strength as i'd read these were a weak point. diff shims are also a pain on this but you can fit bearing then out drives, i bought new shims which solved this but that was my choice. you will see it tomorrow at Roade if you go
