Default what is a good RTR for bashing???

can't keep running my mugen all the time. Parts are expensive, plus the wear and tear. I was thinking one by either ofna, or kyosho inferno rtr.

I keep reading about 5 new threads a day from you regarding issues of this and that nature. I really advise you figure out your first car, before you go jacking around with a second one. Multiple cars are even more expensive to maintain than just one. Despite what anyone says on here, you can beat your mbx6 all you want and still race it on the weekends, if you take care of your stuff. You need to concentrate on learning to tune and put air filters on correctly.

Dude, I really dont see how I am on a high horse by telling you to figure out your first car before you add a second car to the stable. But I will sure as hell get on one this time. You obviously are very inexperienced and need to learn one thing at a time besides compounding your issues. I think you would be best served by taking your ritalin and thinking before you post. That way you could make one educated post with multiple questions, or better yet search for your answer and read a bit before questioning and then hating on the people who try to answer them for you. Good luck in the hobby and have fun selling your sh!t on ebay in 2 weeks when you give up.

Are you looking for another 1/8 buggy? If not...the associated SC8 or a Traxxas Slash are both retarded fun for bashing around. I'm probably going to get 2 slash's for my girlfriend and I.

when you give up.
still don't see your point. The whole reason i got a kit was because i wanted to put it together. Now i want to keep it in top condition and have something i can bash on the hills out in the country where i live. If i drive a nitro rustler into a tree i won't feel as bad if it was my mugen. Hell i can get a good RTR for the price of my motor withouth the manifold, clutch and pipe. arguing or fighting over the net is pointless. But you obviously have a chip on your shoulder. Which is fine i guess. To each his own. But if i want to a hundred luchboxes to put on my mantel i will if that is how i want to spend my money. I should have got a RTR to begin with but they all come assembled. When i was into the hobby years ago they all came disassembled. I had a frog, hornet and 2 rc10's. And make one educated post??? huh???? I will ask what i want when i want. First you tell me how to spend my money, now you are telling me when and how to post???? this isn't china man. if you want to be communist go to china. Or maybe you can go to n korea where kim jong il makes everyone crap in thier front yard to fertalize the lawn. So from now on you will go "look at all my uneducated post" to tell me not to post and i am stupid. Great. gotta go to bed so i can go to work. No hard feelings. See you around. Oh, and it will be a while before i get a rtr. Getting a new scottish terrier.

The Inferno US Sports ReadySet is a fun little kit for bashing. I didn't break a part before giving it to my dad. The US Sports 2 has a better engine and should have the same excellent quality.

It would have "sucked ass" had I actually lost one. I mostly hate e-clips because they are hard to get on and off without flinging across the room.
