For BUGGY, Alpha Plus F850 (that's the red head motor, $199) and Alpha 801 pipe. Go read the Alpha thread.

You can get them from www.rcproproducts.com (RC Pro is the importer) or from various retailers.

My mod B5 was getting between 11-12 minutes at the last race we were at....However for Buggy I would be looking at the B6 instead....

B6 has a smoother powerband and better mileage, it has been tuned more for buggy application...the B5 is more powerful and able to work in both Buggy and Truggy...both are excelent..
