Hyper 7's are good solid buggies. You'll have a hard time finding anything better RTR in your price range. If you can get support for the hyper in your area, I'd say go for it. The hyper 7 is a very tough buggy. I'm not sure about the engine and electronics included with the RTR though.

Well, really if you dont have anything yet, i.e. starter box, radio and things like that, then I would save up a little more and go for the ready to run losi truck or buggy whichever you prefer. You get everything but fuel with this kit and the last radio you will ever need.
