Here we go again......what buggies have you seen or driven that you like??? There will be a heap of people that are pro Losi (like myself), or pro mugen, or pro x-ray, etc..............they are all great buggies but there are others that will give them a run for their money on any given day. You need to take into account what your LHS stock so when you do need parts you will have somewhere to get them.

you like agressive..

rc8 or losi.. owning both i prefer the rc8..

like a more forgiving yet still kick some ass and take names with a top quality kit

go for mugen


i personally belive xrays are meant for overseas tracks. which usually consist of very smooth. astro turf.

The losi is the more proven platform of the three especially on american tracks. The Rc8 had a bumpy start, but it seems they fixed the issues with it. The EC will neew some tweeking for american tracks, but it can run with the others just as well. Expect the 808 to be alot like the losi, just with parts that dont wear as fast.

What do you currently 'play' with? If you can stand the itch, just wait for the new Kyosho, Mugen and Xray
