I know you are talking about me and the other Steve..... and yes... after a few weeks with the 8ight it felt like I was doing alot better then with the Hyper 7... I could never make that car feel good..... After running the 8ight for a race season I have to say that I liked what it did for me.... now with that said I would also like to try out other buggies....

But like everyone say's it's alot of the drivers style and perfrence. I have noticed that I have a little difernt style than most people. I am a more "full throdle" guy and that being that I like/need my truck a little on the "pushy" side to slow me down a little bit, pushy feels good to me

just start off with the Hyper 7. and as you get better, upgrade to a better buggy. i would say either go with Jammin, Mugen, or RC8

I was thinking a Jammin, I have never heard anything bad about them.

Jammins are tanks...jammins don't turn, jammin this jammin that....thats what people will tell you.

I run both Jammin cars...they rock. and i can't wait till the new truck is availible. My truggy turns just about like my buggy. there are ways to get them to turn, you just have to have a good setup and make sure everything is free!!!

but again they fit my driving style. I am a more throttle than not kind of guy as well, and they work for me very well!!!!

I have not driven a Hyper 7. Being that it is an Ofna product, it and the Jammin probably have some things in common. I do not know this for sure, but i would guess that they are similar.

Actually they are nothing alike as the Hyper 7 is made by Hobao and Jammin` is made by Hong Nor . I`ve had and raced both and both are great buggies .

Default Jammin'!!

Yeah!! Lot's of talking bad about the Jammin'. but I think it's grat all-round: rugged built, fast, forgiving......of course it's the one I drive!! hehehehe..........trouble's more about the driver and the set-up!!

Of course Mugen is good, XRay has excellent craftmanship, Losi is innovative, Kyosho...

I'm on the look out to see what RC8 and O'Donnel can do. They look hot!!
