I personally like the Losi body style, again just an opinion.

get a Hotbodies D8 and dont look back. i was always against HB till i gave one a try and every other buggy doesnt handle half as good as the D8 does. i can pull a faster lap with the MBX 6 but my average lap is about a second and half lower than my average lap on the MBX 6. so one fast lap here and there doesnt mater if you crash more . i went a whole 20 min main without crashing one time with the HB.

Crashing is more the driver than the buggy. The buggy only does what you make it do. Set-up will change everything.

D8 twice as fast as everything else is a funny statement

Either the AE or Mugen will do a great job. I would run either one.

In terms of looks, I'd have to agree that they're probably the best looking buggies. In terms of quality & performance though, I think the Mugen edges out the RC8. Kinda sad too, I always wanted an Associated car, but the company seems like just a pale version of its former self.

you said a mouth full with that statement. When i got back into rc after 15 years, i knew to get associated. That is what i knew. I had a rc 10 graphite when it came out and loved it. It was also the best back then.

when i was researching everyone told me to stay away from the rc8. It is sad.

quality = the reorder buisness. While the lesser quality is in the selling buisness.
