Default Duratrax

The Duratrax Nitro Evader Bx is a great dependable buggy if you are still looking for a cheaper buggy. It's around $250

I did not say it was a great kit, I said it would cost $389. I used it as an example of a quality brand/kit that can be purchased for less than double the cost that the original poster is looking for. It's quality has to be assumed given HPI/Hot Bodies' history. Losi's kits can be found for a little over $400 new right now as well.

Have you ever owned a Duratrax?

They have good equipment, I'm not worried about anything breaking or stripping out when I run in the backyard or when I race.

Duratrax is very dependable, if you haven't ever owned one then you can't talk smack about them.

Also, I wouldn't start off with a 4wd. They use up more gas, harder to handle, and not as fast.

What a load of B/S

The guy is looking for a 1\8th scale buggy

Ryanroma , what do you expect to get for $280 , do you need running gear or just a buggy for that price . + 1 on the used buggy , if you have a club near by drop in one race day ask a few questions and maybe get someone to help you find a bargain, they are out their.....

Cheers Paul......

Driving a 2wd drive nitro truck is substantially harder than driving a 4wd buggy. No question about it.
