Depends on so many factors. What is your driving style, what is available locally unless you are willing to order all parts online. What does everyone else run at your home track, etc.

And don't forget, what do you really want? You should buy the buggy you really want, or you'll end up buying one, then just buying the one you really want in the future. One buggy is cheaper than two.

I have driven a few in my time. Mayhem Pro, Turmoil Pro, and the Jammin buggy. I now have The Associated RC8. By far, the RC8 has been the easiest ti drive and tune. Very user friendly. It also seems to handle better and drive easier the faster I go. Figure that one. My suggestion would be the RC8. But as Semple said, their are many factors that could be involved. Driving style, track type, power plant, electronics, etc.

i would get the mugen, or a mp9, i had the rc8 and the 8ight, they are good cars but dont hold up like the japenese made cars, the quality is much higher on the cars that are made in japan or the xray where its made, pretty much everyother brand is made in taiwan thats why the price's are less for those not because they are just charging less for the same quality, i got the mugen mbx6 the quality is just unbelievable compared to what i was used to

I went Xray for quality, ease of maintenance, the fact that it's made in Europe.

Haven't put it on a track yet, but I'm sure it'll be a huge step forward for me from the Losi I had.

Go with the XRAY 808. It costs $200 less than the MP9 but the quality is just as high. The drivetrain is made from (my opinion) the best steel in the RC industry. The car is easy to work on and even easier to drive. I drove my buddies one day at the track and it loves to be driven hard. It is also very light weight. No hop ups are really needed unless you absolutley want them and XRAY has their own upgrades so you can keep it all factory.

I got my 808 a couple of months ago, and I could not be happier. Best buggy out there for the price IMO. There are so many good things about I can't even get into it, unless you want me to ramble on for pages. I can promise you, you will not be dissapointed with this buggy.

Thumbs up Xray XB808

Xray XB808 is the ticket,.... for most non-pro drivers this is the easiest to drive and the fastest buggy out. This car has the front forward balance but is not a$$ happy like other weight forward designs. Its really the best of both worlds and will benefit any driving style. I've noticed it turns like an on-road car and holds good mid corner speed, but then comes out of the corners insanely fast. Also this is the strongest and lightest buggy on the market. IMO

It has so many great design features the list would go on forever. My Servos last very long in this car, in fact I've sold all my back-up servos. LOL!

I promise you will not be disappointed at all if you get an Xray. Its just an absolutely sweet ride!

808!

probably the only 2 that i would touch is the MBX6 or the 8ight 2.0.

But with the emergence of the D8, cheap and fast, could go up to 3
