ya he said he got that 55mph stock gearing going up and down the road. The easy driving im not looking for. I have an xxxtcr ive been racing indoors here and i drove a 1/8th and i was in love they were so much easier than a 2wd 1/10. I like the buggy cause its cheaper and it seems more my style but i like how high the truggy is off the ground. its kinda a hard choice.

For a budget concious man, I would recommend the Hot Bodies D8 if you are wanting to go nitro. Id go with the werks B5 motor it has AWESOME performance for the price.

D8, werks b5 motor, werks 2035 pip(i think), hitec 7954 servos, and for radio im running the new ko propo ex5 awesome radio and not to pricey also comes with two recievers.

As far as problems there are 7 people racing hot bodies here locally and none of them have any problems breaking or anything.

as for what do i prefer to drive well last season i raced my 1/8 buggy and yes its harder to drive and you have to be smooth with it. 2010 is gone to be my first year racing truggy .


but from what i seen at my track the guys ,with the truggy they look like a blast they drive them hard to .
Sure as hell my buggy went at least 100mph (or maybe more) when I was running behind it (stupid ace throttle servo a few years back) that sob was FAST I couldn't catch it or my breath after that thank God it hit a bump and flipped over. Luckily I was running a cheap rtr engine!

I drove buggy for a while and saw my mate have so m uch fun with truggy so i gave it a try and wow it was probably more fun that buggy and easier to drive and especially jumping, both are very tough and you would have to do or hit something hard to do damage.
cheers

look for deals....team drivers are getting new rides all the time and the good ones keep their rides like new.

heres one of my new rides. a little heavy but planted...very stable.

when braking in go engines use the mri oil you can get it from massive mods this oil just frees things up making it easier to break in and sfaer fro your engines.
