They just get no respect. On a scale of 10 three and a half at most. Go to the track see what their running and go that route.

Default what do you want to do?

Do you plan on racing? If you just want an off road buggy to drive, the rc10 ready to run looks nice. It's a proven design that will last. If you want a 1/8th scale buggy, well they are expensive. you could just start with an rc8 or mugen, but that would end up being expensive no matter what brand. Starter box, servo's, all that stuff is pricey. For entry level off roading, I recommend a 2wd electric buggy for ease of use, and not too bad pricing. JMO....It will still handle gret at the track too....
