interesting question...

if u are actually serious though, it isnt as simple as saying that this buggy is "faster" than this other one. if u are comparing a stock rtr buggy there will be an answer (i dont truthfully know, but i'd guess the sportwerks turmoil would be up there).
if u are after an absolute answer then the fastest buggy is the one with the engine that-

a. has the most powerful motor that can either pull very high rpms, or if its a bigblock, can pull a really high gear ratio to take advantage of whatver power it has.
b. has gearing (clutchbell and spur) to take advantage of this power as mentioned above.

hope that helps.

Why??

if u want a fast car get a drag car,buggies are not meant for top speed.They are designed with handling and durability in mind.

Fastest buggy... Get a Hyper 7 and install the 2 speed kit. It will go beyond 70.

Respek, big up yourself!





J/k. In all seriousness though, its not about the speed with 1/8 buggies. If you want pure speed, go buy some on-road car that purely is designed for speed. If you want to race off-road, then buy a buggy.
