In the very first post, he stated..."tell me whats the best rtr nitro buggy..."
That being said, the Jammin, Hyper 8.5, Losi 8, and AE RC8 are all very capable on any given track. I've driven the Hyper and am very competitive on my local track. The Losi is probably the most expensive of these choices, but it comes with the best Tx/Rx package and IMHO, the best of the RTR engines. However, it comes with a stamped chassis. The Hyper and I believe the Jammin come with CNCd chassis which are more durable. I don't know about the AE.

I think the ebst advice given so far is for you to check around your area shops. Who carries/supports what products? If you choose the Jammin, but your area shops only support AE, then you're gonna be S.O.L when it comes time to get parts or upgrades. Yes, you can order online, but if something is broken, you're down until it gets shipped.

Go Losi I am partial to them because they have excellent products with multiple titles and outsanding support. Also the Hot Bodies Lightning 2 Sport RTR is also a good buy for the money and the fun factor is on the high side and it's durable..

Of course I am extremely bias, but take a good look at Hot Bodies. We have some amazing rtr kits available for reasonable prices. Plus our RTR kits are race worthy as well. thanks

XTM XT2!
(jk only cuz i work at hobby people)


i'd say anything you have the easiest access of parts for.
I run an 8ight roller and enjoy it

the 8ight rtr seems like a good deal because it comes with good components out of the box unlike most RTRs.

If anything upgrade the servos first on that car. but ya. good luck

Ok, looks like you have driven some 2wd stuff and electric stuff.... so, given that you should be smoother than the average driver... the Losi 8ight.

For the average guy who hasn't driven an RC car, it might be a little too twitchy and nervous though.

Pick up a Losi RTR and some oil for the diffs and you will be ready to go.
