When I first joined this forum it had some usefull information on it but it's the repetitive and useless threads like this one that has slowly pushed me away from using it. It's become nothing more than a place for some to fill their personal voids in their life. It's a shame. There's very few threads of importance to the sport. We all know which ones too. Sorry but it's true and I know Im not alone.

I agree with you roadracer. It always cracks me up when I see "what buggy (radio, engine, etc.) should I buy?" The answer is incredibly simple. If you plan on racing, go to the track, see what the majority of the people are using and buy one of those. If you are bashing, see the vehicles/parts that are carried by your LHS and buy one of those.

A bad driver with top of the line equipment is still going to be a bad driver. Set me up just like Drake, and he'll still beat me by 10 laps.

The high-end buggies are so close in quality that 95% of the racers out there probably can't tell the difference. The other 5% race for the suppliers, so it really doesn't matter to them. It's all free.

Buy any one of the 6 or 8 best buggies and get on the track.

I wonder who is dead last? There are a few oddball knockoffs out there that do not count. My list starts here.

Duratrax
Caster
ocm
team magic

I agree most of the top 10 brands are good enough to win. Maybe we should post the not so good on here to warn others.
