I would like to but I don't need another buggy LOL. Hit me up whenever you sell it if you are still interested. How much are you asking for it if you don't mind me asking? I know a few people wanting a buggy.

I'd like to get 425-450 for it shipped but I am open to offers. Like I said it's never been ran or even taken out of the box. Still has the factory seal on the box. If u no someone interrested pm me.

well since you already have it why not run it? There is nothin wrong with the rc8 as a basher there is no need to go out and get something else. Go out and have fun

Personally i've had alot more fun with my buggy than i did with my revo. In fact i just sold my revo platinum and today should be taking delivery of a 8ight-t 2.0 race roller. I had no idea how fast buggies were and how well they fly. Its a night and day difference between them. Also the buggy is much cheaper to replace parts and easier to maintain. I honestly don't think there is anywhere my old revo could go and my buggy couldn't. I'm more than happy with my 8ight 2.0 buggy and will soon have a truggy to go along side of it.

If i were you i'd yank the listing before someone bids on it. Or raise the price where it won't be bid on. Personally i love buggies and had no idea until just a few weeks ago. In the past i've always had monster trucks but to be honest they just aren't that much fun. They are ok for jumping but not as good as a buggy. The buggies just handle, feel and run much smoother. I had a monster truck in my back yard all year, had it fine tuned the way i wanted it to run and it did pretty good. Then came my buggy. I've got it tuned how i want it and it absolutely rips up my yard. I have large sections of grass missing, my monster truck never had that kind of power. I'm also tearing around the track at nearly twice the speed. In every way i'm having so much more fun with the buggy than i did with the monster truck. In fact if i had to do it over again i would skip monster trucks and go straight to a buggy or truggy.
