To some extent yes, but people also like to be different and when you go somewhere and everyone has the same car, well its like a paint scheme, i thought i would paint mine all white with red stickers and at the big race there were 10 all white buggies. boring.

Since I have none right now, so I am not biased, because I have never ran 1/8 scale buggy before either.

1st- RC8
2nd- TQ SX8
3rd- Caster ZX1-R Pro

Call me unconventional it's cool, but I don't believe to buying into hype. Show me it is worth the price tag. In the last 4 months i have seen all 3 of these at a track, and they did that time and time again.

I don't care what PRO did what, with said car. I want to see a novice/beginner handle the car, because that's what I am. I know if it can take a bashing from a racer like me, THEN I know it is worth my money.

Just my 2 cents.
