I have a quick question: I'm getting ready to buy a 1/8th scale buggy but don't know which one to buy. Here in Boston we don't have many shops. We only have HobbyTown Quincy, Mass. So I went there and found nothing 8th scale buggy wise. My mission is jump into Nitro racing at the novice/entry level.
So I'm venturing off to the online hobby shops for a kit. I had my eye on the ThunderTiger EB4
. from what I heard(word of mouth), that the EB4 is hard to assemble(If you don't have prior knowledge to building kits).
Hunting around I found that AcesHardware hobbies stocks parts for the Eb4. The kit is $489.
Second kit I am looking at is a GS-Storm
. I heard good things about this kit, but the parts to find for it are slim to none from HorizonHobbies. But the price is nice @ $429.
The last kit I'm looking at is an OFna 9.5MBX @ only $399 from Aces and they stock the parts.
Can someone offer an opinion on what you did at the entry level of racing?
