Default Making an comeback

Hey everyone, Been away from this hobby for a while since I sold my stuff and picked up a guitar. But me, my brother and his friend are ready to make a comeback!

We are all pretty seasoned in RC cars (Electric and Nitro) But we have no idea what the hell is even going on the the world of RC cars now.

We are all looking to get some 1/8 scale buggy happening here for some good ole fashioned blowin it up, breakin, 15 foot high jump bashing here.


We are thinking about getting some used or new Ofna's if they are the right price. I dont think we'll be going with any other brand since we know Ofna is pretty good and have some awesome buggys for the price.

Were planning to get some off of eBay since they are even at a better price used and decent price new. So if you could suggest some Ofna buggys that are pretty good runners for bashing and just tearing up that would be awesome!

Peace
Daniel

I've got an Ultra MBX Comp 2 with a 2 speed transmission, picco .26, jp2 pipe, 645 steering servo that I'm considering selling. Let me know if you're interested.

I was on ebay today and there is a guy with 8 of these Ofna Ultra LX One RTR's for 289 with free shipping. I checked them out on Ofna's website, they look decent but they do look a little cheapo.

Tell me what you think: http://ofna.com/ultralx1.php

No, it is made by xray. I would go with the new Jammin X1X RTR Buggy! Best RTR buggy on the market.
Check out this site for a list of prices on the buggies http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.php/cPath/1_44_48
