Mugen, Kyosho, Losi, Jammin, Ofna and Associated are good brands to pick up. As far as engines, I stick with nice Itallian mills like RB Concepts or Novarossi, though O.S. and GO and Picco are also great engines. Just buy what fits your budget.

Ah yes, true true. But who wants to say they have a nice French mill? I LOVE my RBs, first the WS7II now on to my C6BB. It should be fully broken in after tomorrows race. WOOT!

I know that here at our track in Topeka Kansas and the tracks around us the O.S .21 V-Spec is the top motor here. I have one with 1.5 gallons on it and I still can not turn it over by hand and it is a very fast motor I won my race yesterday by 7 laps and the guy that was 7 laps behind was running that ninja B01A

CEN Matrix with a ninja os or a 21-5K novarossi will scream at just about 50 if you get it tuned right with the right gear ratio

Yea, you forgot about one of the best and highest quality kits out there... Xray.

If you want awesome support, perfectly machined parts and hudy spring steel that will flex, not break then Xray is the way to go.

Happy xray owner here, Ive driven my XB8TQ (Buggy) for 2 hard years now and Ive only broken a modified steering knuckle.

Yes, I did forget Xray. There are too many 8th scale buggies now.... My personal favorites are the Losi 8, Xray XB8 EC and Mugen MBX5R. Personally I feel that any vehicle that needs any mods is not worth my time. These 3 vehicles are amazing and need no "mods". Why buy a high dollar kit that needs special attention?
