Have you ever seen the Hot Bodies Lightning 2. It come as a RTR for 399.99 or the PRO for 429.99. The Pro has all of the hop ups already on it but comes with no electronics or engine. The buggy is extremely tough and really good for racing. The buggy is redesigned for a lower cg. Travis Amezcua races this buggy and doesn't do any mods to it except changes diff oils and shock oils. He used this buggy to win the US Nationals. It's as competetive as the Kyosho 7.5 series and the 777. Check this buggy out.
