Default Buggy Galore

So what does everyone thinks of this explosion of 1/8 buggys?
Call me old school, but I have my money on the Serpent and Durango...

I think we should make a list of all the buggy current manufacturers and tally them up to see how many are really available right now.

I'l start off by listing all the different ones I can think of (only platforms count, not different trim levels. E.g. RC8 RTR and RC8B count as one):
1. Xray 808 '10
2. Losi 8ight 2.0
3. Kyosho MP9
4. Kyosho Inferno Sports (MP7.5 platform)
5. Associated RC8B
6. Hot Bodies D8
7. HPI Trophy 3.5
8. Durango DEX408
11. Serpent 811
12. Agama A8
13. LRP buggy
14. O'Donnell Z01B SG
15. Bergonzoni
16. Hobao Hyper 9
17. Hobbytech Spirit STR8
18. Jammin X2
19. Mugen MBX6
20. CEN
21. OCM
22. Duratrax Raze (still in production?)
23. SH Z-Car
24. Ofna Hyper 7
25. Ofna Ultra
26. Ofna Ravager

Hmmmm, that's all I can find right now, but I'm sure there are more! Keep the list going if you know of others.

That's a total of 26 unique platforms so far! And those are only nitro buggies! (although most electric buggies are based on a nitro platform, the note able exception is the D8 vs Ve8) Counting different versions of these chassis the list would have well over 50 items!

It means you have the option of placing your battery pack in the front or rear, for weight distribution.
