The thing is any start system with a one-way bearing will give you hell alot. Save some more money and get a bump box. You can run them with a 1.1 car battery for a while. On a LX-1 the big gear in the rear diff will burn out fast if you don't keep an eye on it. Be ready to buy a new case and hardened gear and bearings for when it lets go. Also you need a better steering servo soon, that thing lets go the first time you smack some thing hard. All in all it's a good learner buggy just take it easy for a-while and get some good tools and keep it clean and work on it alot. Most of all, have fun.

Have a look in teh for sale section of this forum.
There are always plenty of good deals to be made.

In hindsight I think you may have been beter of getting a complete second hand setup from someone, that is how I bought my first car (XB8) and it was a great way to get started.

I still actually run with the XB8 as it is almost indestructable, and until I learn to drive better (ie keep it on its wheels and stop clearing the fence around tha track) then I will stick with it.

I have bought second car and a heap of spares, but so far have only broken 1 front shockie shaft, I am waiting for a heap of Losi shock oils and diff oils to arrive (should be today) and I will be playing with setups.

It works fantastic.

I bought mine with a Lipo battery, soI had to make sure my charger would work with that, but all is good.
My old starter box is a big thing that connects to a car battery, I reckon it is more powerfull than the Mugen one but is a pain in the arse to lug around.
