Default What buggy to buy

I have a rc8 now and want a new 1/8 nitro buggy. I can tell you i don't want a ae, losi, ofna, or a hotbodies. Anybody got any good sugestions? I am running a nova +4 and a 053 pipe that will go in it. So please tell what and why I should buy it.

Thanks

Personally i havent driven one but one of the local drivers went with a Hotbodies D8 this year and he is turning in amazing laps this year. But since you dont want to go that direction like previously stated you dont have much of a choice. Why the hating on the other brands like that?

Take a look at the Mugen MBX6, Xray 808, and the new Serpent 811 all nice pieces!

I don't like the way the losi drives, I have a vorza and which is almost a d8 and I hate it, ofna changes to much and hard to get parts around here, and the rc8 is just very loose. It does not fit my driving style, and will be up for sale very soon. A lot of guys have the mugen around here and I like it but parts are very expensive. I know nothing about the xray, kyoshio, and the odonall at all. Nothing wrong with any of the makers I have friends that have all of the ones I don't like and they love them but they are just not for me.

Your being to picky. no car is gonna be perfect. Look at the agama a8. Its like teh losi but it has better steering and all the people who have tested it have loved it. Flys well and all.

well imo your doing the right thing lol.. The xray was the best car ive ever drove. But i just bought serpent 811 because it looks great on the track and because i love the serpent onroad stuff. But the mugen is a great car as well its a tank. any of the 3 is amazing. but IMO get the xray you will like it.

Yes there is! It's called get more opinions then what your lhs guys tell you. And yes I know what I don't like and there are many to choose from. Also it's not bad to be an individual at all. One more thing $500-600 is a lot of money to spend on something you haven't driven so I'm being a smart shopper.

vorza drives nothing like the D8 IMO plus nitro and electric cant compare, totally different power plant and handling and the list goes on and on.

the RC8 is one of the most planted buggy out there.

IMO you need to figure out setup. obviously your setup is off. im not trying to be rude or anything but all of these "problems" your having sound just like setup issues. get something and stick to it and adjust setup to FIT YOU!!!
