I'm looking to get a buggy. I'm just about down to either the Lightning 2 Pro or the Sportwerks Mayhem Pro. I would appreciate any advice on these. Here's what I'm considering...
In the L2P, I would want an O.S. .21 V-SPEC. In the Mayhem Pro, I would either get the Pro with the .21 engine or the Pro w/o an engine and use an O.S. .21 V-SPEC.
The total for the L2P, with V-SPEC, would be approx. $780
The total for the Mayhem Pro w/.21 engine would be $529
The total for the Mayhem Pro, w/V-SPEC, would be approx. $790
Something I've been trying to find out is - is the Mayhem Pro as DURABLE and TOUGH as the Lightning 2 Pro? If so, the Mayhem with the .21 is a great deal in a buggy. If not, I'll go with the L2P.
I'll be using this for racing AND lots of bashing/BIG jumping, so DURABILITY is my biggest concern.
Another idea I've toyed with, is the new Mugen Prospec and O.S. .21 V-SPEC bundle for $999. This is slightly cheaper than buying a Prospec and V-SPEC separately. It is also only $120 more than the L2P and V-SPEC I mentioned above. Of course, I could buy TWO Mayhem Pros with .21s for the same price...
I already have servos and radio.
So, my main question is - Lightning 2 Pro or Mayhem Pro?
My second question is, should I go all the way and just get the Mugen Prospec/V-SPEC bundle? (Is the Mugen TOUGHER/more DURABLE than the L2P?)
Has anyone seen the .21 that comes with the Mayhem Pro? I believe it is made by SH. Does it run good and have a good, linear powerband? Is it fast? Does it last?
(By the way, I'm not interested in an Ofna, Jammin, Kyosho, etc. I've narrowed it down to these choices and that just about drove me crazy enough...
Thanks for any help and sorry for the long post,
