Default Best Buggy or Truggy

Hi I have $400 to spend on a 1/8th buggy or truggy. What would be the best one for bashing, but can still handle on the track???

Thanks

You should really spend the money and get an 8ight-t 2.0

Dude if you are bashing dont get a buggy. There is no best out there. Make your decision based on part support and who can help you out at the track.

If you know whats good for you you will get a losi.Yes i know its like joining the dark side of the force.You must do this to save your self.Rule #1 never ever bad mouth a losi rule#2 allways know you are the best because you love your losi rule #3 Even if you dont like the losi never tell any one because you will get flamed hard core rule #4 keep a picture of the Drake on your person at all times.If you start getting flamed on hard just pull out the picture of drake and they will leave you in peace.Heed my words frend and go.Go in peace.

OK Losi bandwagon leave this guy alone. He wants a real car. Sound like he wants a TOUGH car. Your best bet is the Mugen MBX6. That car you can find in your price range of $400. That car will put up well with the track or bashing. The quality is amazing. I ran one this year and never ended up with a DNF due to fault of the car. Now if you have $400 for a car + engine + servos and everything you need then I would start looking at a used buggy. Try and find a good ole mbx5r package someone has posted with light use. Those cars can still hold their own on the track and are still as tough as the mbx6. O yea the Hot Bodies cars are nice as well and will leave you cash for extra arms and cvd's and such.

If you crash a hot bodies is not the right car for you. I know guys will tell you different but stick with a losi or mugen and you will be just fine. Check out the 4sale threads there's always good stuff in there be patien and findthe right car. I bought my last buggy used and it was a lot cheaper than biting it new so that freeded up some cash to get a new chassis and some smart diffs. Whichever you choose losi or mugen you can't go wrong.

Try the OFNA Picco RTR, at least it comes with a .21 engine and you'll have plenty left over for extra plugs, fuel, etc.

Or save up another 300 or so and get the 8ight RTR. Comes with great stuff, and a great buggy. You can get it for around $600

Well neither a buggy or truggy is made for bashing... They are designed for racing on a somewhat smooth track without limbs, weeds etc... So there is no good buugy of truggy made for bashing in my opition....

I would get a revo, or tmaxx.. where they can take the abuse of bashing, and if you want you can race them in the monster class and still have alot of fun doing it...

Just my 2 cents worth

have you ever owned a MT ?

Most cant take the abuse for more then a couple jump's then there on the bench getting fixed....Truggy/Buggy's are imo WAY Tougher then a Old heavy MT could ever be.

We have a t-maxx 3.3 and a vxl slash which are fun but wanting a rtr buggy or
truggy for under 400.00 for the bashing and racing at our home track and local tracks.
Thanks

I'm with Integra on this; buggies and truggies are as close to indestructible as you'll find.
