thought the sc10 was the lightest of the bunch?
anyway my view is that if you put any of these cars in a good drivers hands he will make it perform so it's left to us noddy drivers to try our best to emulate these fella's (no chance) at times they are like robots, zero mistakes!!, so just enjoy what ever you have deciced to buy and keep smiling, i have bought an sc10 4x4, not fully built yet so i can't comment fully but happy with the build so far can't wait to try her

I've been able to do some more driving of my FT 4x4 this weekend. With the 4000kv Tenshock it's only slightly faster top end wise than my 3300kv 2wd SC10 but the acceleration is awesome. It can catch and pull away from the 2wd from a standing start halfway down the straight with the 2wd entering the straight flat out.
I know top end is about gearing but that 4 pole motor is amazing.
I'd love to see what the 4600kv motor is like but I know I don't need it for my track.
Very happy chappy.

(For the price of them I'm tempted to buy one of the bigger motors as a spare!)

The Losi does well in America not so much because of the dirt but because of the big jumps. The parachute effect is reduced when the truck is heavy. I'll probably add about a kilo to my SC10 4x4 when I pick it up today.
