Buggy: Team Associated RC8
Engine: Sportwerks .21v2

Tuning options: Bone stock except for the upgraded top plate from AE

Pros: Handles like it's on rails. Incredible acceleration. The car doesn't get upset easily over rough stuff, and seems to be very easy to drive.

Cons: Parts aren't readily available as of yet. The 16t bell is a bit too punchy and I recommend going to the 17t bell. My driving isn't the best in the world, and in the hands of a really good driver, it would scream.

Buggy Model

OCM DT-19 Kaos EVO

Engine

Sirio CL7 B STI

Advantages

Buggy is strong, reliable, easy to drive and very fast. The buggy responds very well to setup changes and turns like it's on rails. Parts are very easy to get and OCM support is incredible.

Disadvantages

A couple of hassles with version 1 buggy, but these are all fixed up now. So I'd have to say none.

Tuning options

OCM Lightened Alloy Chassis
OCM Alloy Rear Uprights.

I have a Mugen MBX5 (standard edition) with a Picco P5 engine, an Xray XB8 with a Sirio Evo III STI engine and a Kyosho 777 WC with an OS Speed .21 engine. I've had a few others too, but I need to limit myself to three.
