Team Associated B4.2 Brushless RTR 1/10 2wd Buggy w/2.4GHz Radio
Team Associated B4.2 Brushless RTR 1/10 2wd Buggy w/2.4GHz Radio
pcfx - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Friday, October 11, 2013
Bought the Team Associated B4.2 RTR in the blue overall colored painted motif (you can get it in either a red or blue painted scheme). Best bang for the buck in terms of value if you don't want to spend time putting it together and would rather get it up & running in a short period of time...got it with a $25 off discount making it an even sweeter deal at the discounted price of $224.99 (instead of the usual asking MSRP of $249.99). It came shipped with the upgraded AE SC500-BL electronic speed controller (esc) installed at the factory (has the four outer screws onboard to indicate that it's, indeed, that latest AE esc version). Of course, your mileage may vary depending on what esc is included: either the older Reddy 3300kv esc or the later production AE SC500-BL esc version depending if the B4.2 RTR set you buy is of an earlier production run or a later production run. I recieved one of the later production run B4.2 RTR sets (so Team Associated has delivered as promised with it's latest budget esc entry in their B4.2 RTR sets). As a basher straight out of the box, it's a blast to go full throttle with a 2-Cell hard case 5000mAh Li-Po battery for about an hour's solid run time with no issues to contend with (much better battery setup in going with a Li-Po battery upgrade with increased run times than going with a cheaper NiMH-based 7.2v 6-cell 5000mAh battery pack with shorter run times between charges). Reverse is included with the newer AE SC500-BL esc but only activates after braking is applied (reverse functionality will then engage on the second nudge of the pistol grip trigger, of course -- is a nice feature to have for bashing purposes but can be disabled for racing as it's not allowed). The included rear tires will eventually wear down after a few Li-Po battery pack runs if ran on an asphalt surface (aka the street)...would recommend getting a pair of Pro-Line Dirt Hawg I 2.2" Rear Buggy Tires (2) [Part no. PRO1071-00] for longer lasting and even tread wear between runs. Very solid Team Associated 1/10th scale B4 based off-road buggy for the asking price (not to mention the ease of replacement parts and upgrades at the local hobby shop if it needed be). By adding an optional B4 rear anti-sway bar upgrade, the buggy does get better performance on a flat high speed track setup due to less chassis roll during the turns. Give it a try with the rear anti-sway bar setup and see how it fares out in your bashing and/or racing venues.
