best RTR buggy is the losi 2.0 buggy RTR. comes with the best gear too.

losi + specktrum will never let you down. personally. i would buy the xray 808 kit. but thats only because im a hardout racer

yep horizon has a review on it. a tip for these starter box's is push down slowly and the buggy will fire right up... alot of people just slam them down and then they jam...

yes i have driven it. top speed will be mainly what your engine puts out.
basically with any top end engine they will all pretty much be the same.

i dont know if it will... YOUR THE DRIVER. what i do know is adam drake the 2007? ifmar world champ driving the losi
