Default Recommendations 1/5 4x4

Ok, baja is still running fine, want to add a 4x4 version to my collection, l am looking for a machine that looks similar to the FG baja but is 4x4, the FG baja is 2 wheel drive like my HPI baja, so being as lm pretty sure there must be something out there under 2000 bucks that looks like the FG baja but is 4x4 , any recommendations ?

MCD Racerunner fits your requirements. But RTR will stretch your $2k. They are expensive cars. Perhaps pick up a 2nd hand one off ebay?

If I was to go for a 4x4 right now, it would be the MCD Rally, or MCD Baja 1000. I just got the Smartech Thunderbolt which will be available soon, which is based on the Titan, both very good cars. The only other real option is FS racing.

I can keep you in that ball park of less than 2k ,,but shipping from NYC to aussie will most likely cost a bit of money to get it to you.

Come on by and check the site or contact us directly.

good luck

MCD Baja 1000, you'll love it. Don't do a 4x4 conversion on a FG!
