Hill climb

I know the 5ive handles better because of the 4wd, but what about hill climbing? I found a new place to run that has really steep sand inclines that are at like a 70 degree angle. My baja 5b made it up there surprisingly fast, will a 4wd be as good or better. I know it is heavier do you think that will cause it to dig in?? Does anyone have 5ive out on LongIsland near the east end? Thanks

works about the same. seems to sink into the soft sand a liitle more. but in most cases the 5ive can easily hang with the baja.

I figured it wouldn't have the horsepower to move them all. Drawing from my experiences with ATV's and UTV's, putting paddles all-around doesn't work well.

your right on UTV's and ATV's but i think the losi with a good engine would do alright.

I saw the Losi's for the first time at Phatdads and I was really impressed with them, they're way bigger than the Baja. As to the OP, I would put money on the Baja beating the 5ive-T in a hill climb, especially in sand. Baja is lighter and the 4WD will bog the Losi down, too much rotating mass. Power to weight is the key and the Baja takes that.
