Default Oh yeah....

Speaking of a budget, I forgot about the Kyosho mp-9, gotta love kyosho buggies even though they gouged us on the price of the, well all their buggies for the last 20 years, but they are smooth machines....can't leave them out....

The best buggy you can get is one that your local hobby shop stocks parts for and that people run at your local track. If you can't get parts or help with a buggy it makes racing just that more difficult.

Go the hyper 9. One of the easiest cars to drive and set up and parts ( even though hard to break with newer models ) are available nearly any where.

Go for the Hot Bodies D8. You can't go wrong with it. Low cost, high performance. Ultimately it is your driving skill that makes the difference. Xray is very expensive in my opinion, not worth the expense. Save the $$$ for better electronics & engines

I have a rb s7 engine that I'm planning on dropping into whatever buggy roller I get. I'm thinkin I want a mbx6 or mbx5 or an xray. My lhc can get any part I need so I'm not worried about that. What's a decent semi cheap steering servo? And what pipe should I use? A rb pipe?

If you can get a MBX6 then get it! Xray 2010 spec is good as well but cost's a bit more. You're going to get a million different answers for the questions you're asking. Get a quality kit and practice. You'll have fun. I would think most good mid range pipes like a 2035 or 053 would work with that RB S7 but I'm not the RB expert. You should be able to find a good servo for around $90 to $100 bucks from several brands.

Why not do your own research? Are you honestly going to buy the buggy that someone tells you to rather than what you decide on for yourself?

You are few clicks away from every peice of information you would need on each buggy, yet your too lazy to read about them and what people have to say about each one. Awesome. Taking a step into the buggy market/racing scene isn't something to do blind, take your time, and learn all you can.

That's twice you've insulted someone directly regarding this thread. Did you call him a "queer" in PM also? Can you give me one good reason why your behavior shouldn't be brought to the moderator's attention? The first BCE chassis thread was locked for language far more civilized than you're using now.

Default s7

The s7 has lots of top end but needs torque, so I say put the 9853ss nova pipe on it wth the long round header...Servos, well there are lots of em that are good. The ace 1313 work great for 70 bucks. You can get a cheaper servo for throttle than steering. If need be....JR makes a ood 3-40 servo that wouldwork in throttle....
