So you've been hanging out at the local rc track with your buddies, throwing round an old 4WD racer you bought second hand off one of the local regulars and you're struggling to keep up with the pack now. You know you need to get something decent to compete with the others and parts that won't break easily when you misjudge the triple, and you don't want to hand over a ton of cash...you're ready for the BZ-444 Pro.

Designed and manufactured by Team C Racing with a huge range of option parts such as front and rear metal gear diffs, anodised aluminium motor mount with integrated heatsink, aluminium hinge pin holders font and back, and the absolutely superb Team C aluminium shocks already included. And it's available as either a build it yourself kit, a 17.5 Stock Class almost ready to run or 10.5T Open Class almost ready to run.
This is an incredibly well balanced buggy and with all the upgrade and option parts available it will suit racers from novices right through to seasoned mod drivers.

Fantastic piece of kit, I have had a ton of cars, mainly 1/8 scale nitro including Losi, HPI, Tamya, Kyosho and XTM, I have to say this car far exceeds any of its stable mates in terms of quality and setup out of the box. It is a very well balanced car for a 4wd, easy to control through the corners and in the air. Unless you are a seasoned high level racing driver that knows exactly what suits their driving style this car will make you a better driver.I purchased this during the cyber sale, it has been on the track for practice only. My initial impressions are high for this buggy and I will update later if my mind changes. Few minor inconveniences on unboxing, the front shocks were full of air, loose motor mount chassis side, spur adjustment was marginal at best, the servo horn for steering was installed a 1\4 turn from center, and few loose screws. I bought the 10.5 and feel it is significantly under powered and over geared, it comes with a 21T pinion (24 is a better choice). The pro's tires are actually decent, and I dont feel they need replacing right away for a decently groomed indoor clay. The steering servo is amazing decently quick and centers well. Fit and finish is nice, the anodizing on the aluminum is vibrant, and evenly applied. I wont get into shock oil and spring dampening since this is subjective to your surface, but chances are you will have to tune to your needs. Bottom line, the thing that holds this buggy back is parts support, most of the common items are back order and buying the Team C equivalent from the EU is terribly expensive since I am in the states. I bought it on sale for 140 USD and at that price I feel it was a decent deal, but if buying a full retail I would double think the purchase.
