the losi is awesome i run it, but go with that d8 setup i recommended and you are going to be a serious contender and come in under budget i bet. or pretty close. but the losi rtr is a really good way to go too awesome radio and one of the best rtr motors out there and it comes with a starter box and all.

ya see im still young. im only 18 im bringing in like 425 a month. i gotta pay for gas and my insurence and for all that other good stuff. im lucky if i come away with 150 dollars a month after all my crap. The d8 would be like 1200 after starter box and all the batteries and stuff. just dont got that kinda money.

If this is ur first year racing pick up a last years team drivers ride. Most have all the buggs out and come with lots of extra parts and about half the price.
And it will be faster than you.

I've got an 8T 2.0. I love it because it can be silky smooth and forgiving at the same time. Buggies test my patience and there is less room to be "amateur". Still, racing/bashing is fun either way.

start with buggy....then go to truggy

buggy will make you a better driver period........I dont think anyone that knows better will dispute that.

Yeah sure ill take a look...look at his home page by clicking his name and his ride will be spotless like new. I got a new in the box odonnell buggy 2 in one for $325 shipped and love it so much bought a nother buggy and truggy with only 1 to 2 races on them with all the hi-end servos, transponders and a bran new os speed tuned worlds motor 2 spektrums in it. Had 3PK ALREADY.
Thats 1 buggy and 1 truggy ready to run with top hi-end gear and all but brand new ...just needed a nother motor.For 1450, do the math, that motor alone is 530 at towers, he threw in new bodys, rims and tires too.
