Most important things;

Driver (trigger finger - steer w/ the rear)
Setup knowledge
Overall adjustability of buggy (wheelbase, diffs, etc.)

You can likely pick any of the popular racing buggies and do well (given aforementioned parameters).

I totally disagree with the order of your list. I currently have running an RC8, MBX6 & D8. I have recently sold an Eight. There is NO WAY the D8 is more agresive than the MBX6. I would say the D8 is the most docil (sp?) buggy I've ever driven. It is very forgiving and easy to drive. The MBX6 handles great but its way more agresive than the D8.

Are all you buggies electric? My D8 with a Vspec is very aggressive. Now with the stock box setup it is very doscle, but if go to 5 or 7 in the center and its a monster.

What car between the losi 2.0 and xray 808 has more sterring. I noticed with the xray aluminum sterring rack u may get more sterring out of the 808.

Aggresive buggy vs Comfortable buggy ?

Isn't that aggressive buggy is too tiring to drive for a long main ?

Fighting understeer is tiring too. A little twitch of countersteer won't wear me out. I understand your point though. They tight sections of the track seem so key that if I have to chill a little in the fast sections for a long main I can. The longest main I've even seen is only 30 minutes.



Anyway, so the voting order so far of: Most aggressive, fastest turning through tight sections buggy.

Xray BOB

Mugen MbxJoe (Bumped up by the Mugen guys)

Losi 2.0

Hot Bodies D8 (ok I know, if someone wants to vote the RC8 over it, I'm all ears.)

AE RC8 (still hope left apparently)

Kyosho Mp9

Jammin and Hyper 9

O' donnell

Everything else?

IMO the 1.0 losi and the 2.0 losi drive the same and have the same amount of steering all though right out of the box the 2.0 has more then the 1.0 but if setup both have same steering to me. but the 1.0 losi and the 2.0 imo have more steering and goes through the ruff better then the 808.. The 808 is a smooth easy to drive car not a smooth aggressive turning car...

I cant believe you are actually forming a basis for what car to buy next from the last 3 pages, forums are great but everyone hides behind a pseudo (sp?) name me included which is why i generally reply to what i can answer, as for your list im sure they are all good cars and will probably do more than asked its just a case of tuning them to do what you want, other thing to consider on the B0B is the fact the prices have just gone up a load worldwide
