Default New to the losi

Hey guys how you doing? I'm new to this forum and Losi. Had my share of Bajas. Going to buy a losi and convert it to a 2wd! Have a good one

What do you mean by runs better? Easier to drive?

Not sure what he means, but from experience with 2wd vs 4wd in the losi I would say 4wd
1. better handling obviously.
2. Generally a faster speed/pace due to all the traction.
Generally it's more stable so you can go faster, hold drifts easier, you can really stay on the power more and not really think about it.

2wd
1. It turns just the same but you can't get on the power in turns(wot)
2. Had a lot more down low snap, it was instant for me could do donuts right out the gate below 1/4 throttle before the pipe even kicks in.
3. Truck seemed to jump a lil differently too.

In general it was just different is all. I like the control of 4wd you can get closer to edge so to speak with the extra control and traction. I didn't mind driving it in 2wd though, I'll be doing it again sometime when I go to the beach.
Keep in mind this is just what I thought/observed for my setup. Next time I'll be running 60k-125k diff fluid in the rear as opposed to 10k to help tame all the diff work in the rear.

I mean exactly that, I'm not a fan of driving 4wd. I like getting wild with 2wd. It shows the better drivers.
