Let's now make this a bashing thread, just simple opinoins and nothing els. No say to any one that the buggy they said sucks.

Most of them are really good and they all have their own advantages and disadvantages. All of them are capable of winning races in the right hands

well i would like to make a prediction and say that the new Jammin Truck will dominate the '08 season.

As for the buggy class, i will make the prediciton that the RC8 will dominate.

but as said previous in this post, the driver makes the car. Jammin has an unbeleivable amount of talent in their stable...and i beleive AE is putting together a one of a kind cast.

Only time will tell!!!!!!!

Well if I were to make a prediction it would be the O'Donnel buggy.
I think it will come on very strong this year, if they can get it released.

Check these out. One on one with Taylor. It was a congratulations party they had at the track I race at. I got to check it out very close up.

Its in 2 parts for some reason. This is one hell of a great track.

Go to media pics and the vids pop up.

Uni4--you race around the KC area? I'm from central Kansas. I would have been at P-hill had I know about it back then. Still want to go race there really bad. A friend of mine was in 3rd place in the pro buggy 10 minutes in. The heat shrink he had on his rear CVD worked loose and took out the bearing carrier part of the rear diff. He also said he was already a few laps down to the other two though.

sorry about my earlier post. I thought it was another "which one is better than the other" thread.
