im thinking now of getting one of the bxl's. ill prolly just run it on 4s. hows the durability?
I have yet to break anything on 4s, no big jumps yet. I did manage to bend a screw after hitting a brick structure while slidding. I believe the screw was already lose before impact helping to cause the bend. I recommend checking all fasteners as an RTR mine had a few lose screws.

About the same with my XXL. Had for almost 2 years. Few rear diffs couple broken rear hubs from bad landings. Nothing that wasn't result of driver error or abuse. I've wanted yo move it to 6s capable and try 5s. Never run on that before.
I'll be trying the B-xxl tires on mine soon. Almost forgot I had them ready.

Not that I'm aware of. Even more bizzare the nitro B-XXL is only $60 more than the nitro XXL on ebay($390 vs $450). The one reason maybe the B-XXL came out later, but it still is quite a difference. I'm guessing the electric will eventually come down.

Maybe someone here can help me.
I'm looking to buy the Kyosho B-XXL VE body shell pre-painted (SXB004), or another one which will be a good match.

Where can I find one? I cannot buy from Kyosho America as I'm, not from the USA.
And from Amazon EU it will cost me ~170Euros including delivery
Hope you may assist me here!
I need it to be sent globally (Israel).

Thanks in advance.

They seem to be scarce. I found one the that sold on ebay for $189! You may want to contact Amain, or any shop that sells the B-XXL. You cold convert it to the regular XXL cage & body, they are more readily available.

If I can run into one used at that kind of price, maybe. I'm actually dangling the idea between this and the new Team Magic E5 (or the RedCat TR-MT10E rebrand of the truck).
Upshot of the MT10E, it's one battery 1/10th scale (ish). Upshot of Scorpion is size and 2WD.

Good luck ... somehow .. Kyosho's body shells are damn expensive!! (But they are nice .. )

You may try to order from Japan directly ... if you know Japanese or google translate.

Dear all,
I've upgraded my Kyosho B-XXL VE with the KYOSXW011 (KYOSXW011) part, which is the optional wing mount - Kyosho Aluminum Wing Stay Set.
Which wing should I install on it now? it seems that most wings will hit the RC case.

Thanks in advance.
