I'm looking into getting myself another FG 1/5 scale. At after having a Marder a good few years back and have noticed that FG now do four wheel drive models.*
There were a few, very expensive, engineer made homebrew conversion kits knocking about back then but spares and reliability were always a concern for me.*
So, what are the factory kits like in terms of running and reliability? Are they worth the bother or just an awkward work-around for a heavy throttle finger?
hi,been looking for a 4wd petrol myself,i quite fancy the kingmotor t2000 which is belt driven,or the kingmotor x1 which is shaft driven which is my favourite,looks well built, but dont know of anyone that has one, regards karl
ftx punisher is a good buy for the money and so is a mcd v4 both are worth a look
If your wantinf 4WD, then id have a look at the new losi (but it is expensive), try and get a decent 2nd hand MCD evo3 of ebay. A V4 would be pretty expensive and evo3 parts are still widely available for good prices. Or the FG 4WD baja which is supposed to be alright however ive not read many review regarding it as yet.
My choice would be the MCD evo3. Whilst i like the losi 5T, there only new, so like their 8ight, theyll no doubt bring out a 2.0 version with some edits. And hopefully bring out a roller version.
However, as that is not the case, id go for the MCD
hi, bought ftx punisher and really happy with it, cheers karl
