I just read a forum saying that the c-1 is a better racer than the r2. And you would think a newer version would be better. oh well thats only 1 forum. Does tower have a lot of available cen parts?

yea tower has a butch of parts for cen, the r2 looks like it better cause of the inprovements but the 4.6 engine way to much for a buggy in racing wise a .21 or a .26 isnt bad though

if you can find a losi 8ight 1.0 rtr anywhere thats your best bet. If I were you I would wait a month or 2 and save up and get the new 2.0 rtr. Really any other rtrs wont do it.

The C1 is the older version, the R2 is the brand new version. They are very well priced. Parts are generally harder to get at your LHS but they are easily available at any of the online stores, A-main, Carolina's, etc.. also go to the CEN website and ask around about being a CEN "army" member and it will get you parts at a reduced price.
