Which OFNA buggy is it? I've got a Turmoil I use as a practice buggy, it's a pretty decent buggy, not as good as the newer stuff. I would say it ranks right under the RC8.

How much for them

IF all three are running with some spares thats not a bad deel. Is this you first set-up? If it is, you got to start some were, so why not here? Make sure a working start box is in the deel.

I got another truck off of this guy before and he is a upfront guy. I am sorry I do not have pictures. I know that the truggy isn't even broken in all the way yet. There are a few bump boxes and every rc related thing he has in his garage coming with it. I just don't know anything about these sportwerks vehicals. I know the ofna is a discontuned model so that is just a buggy I will tone down for my son to play with next year.

Losi bandwagon...... Well, you tell me what new quality buggy can you get for $700 complete? LOSI - What buggy can you go to just about EVERY LHS in the good ole USofA and get support for? LOSI.
So bandwagon. When I first started it was LHS who sold me on LOSI and I am glad I went that way.

I will be getting a new D8T by spring along with a D8B for racing just want to know if it is worth picking these up and if I can even get parts for them anymore.

I considered the losi buggy and truggy along with a few others but in the end I like HB's stuff. Not that it is any better or worse but I know guys who race them that can help me get them set up.
