Default Would you buy a Sportwerks Turmoil for $200?

Is this buggy worth the money. $200 for a 1/8th scale buggy is DIRT cheap. I know you get what you pay for but is this buggy breaking the rule?

Thumbs up would you buy a sport works turmoil for $200

I believe it's the best bang for your buck to try this class out.If its the turmoil pro.Amain has the turmoil pro w21 and pipe for $299 which I think is great.That sportwerks 21 is a strong running motor.Lance

I am looking to get the roller for a Electric conversion. I have raced 8th scale in the past and mainly ran Kyosho buggies. My last buggy was a mugen MBX5 but I built it and never ran it. I don't plan on racing every week like I used to but I may race 5 or 6 times next season so a $500+ buggy isn't in my budget.

Thumbs up

Then i think the $200 turmoil pro would be perfect.Parts are very reasonable and also a large selection always on e-bay

I had a sportwerks buggy and it was very solid and handled nicely, I would go for it.
