4WD Vs. 2WD

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am in the market right now for a nitro truck, and my question is, will I notice a significant difference from 4 wheel drive compared to 2 wheel? I really like the Traxxas Jato but was wondering if I would become bored with it.

I had two 2WD stadium trucks and found that they break often with normal use. I bought a T-Maxx and use it pretty much in the same manner as I did my stadium trucks and never had a problem. I guess I could run the T-Maxx a lot harder and do crazy jumps and probably break stuff, but with regular use I found it to be better and cheaper in the long run. Also...with a T-Maxx you get a 2 speed transmission, 4WD and reverse for a little bit more money than a stadium truck.

i bought a sportmaxx and it was ok to drive on flat hard surface but in soft dirt it would get stuck easy .. then i bought a spool rear diff for it and it aws better in the softer ground but would still get stuck and it sucked on climbing hills... then i got a 4x4 upgrade with my spool locker and it walks over everything w/o a locked rear diff .... next time i order parts for it im gettign a spool for the front too but with the spool and 4x4 iv twisted off 2cvds .... so for all the extra stain you put on it you'll need to beef up your running gear
