i think if your going to anther brand do alot of research. new option parts etc are making the buggys & truggys easyer to use/drive etc.

quility go xray(great all rounders) or kyosho. design go AE/Losi. aggressive driver with huge jumps go tamiya.

others opinions may change that. but thats how i use mine. and thats how my buggys like it

Follow your heart. Otherwise you'll always have the "what if" swirling round your head when racin.

Hey cluffy , if you are going buggy , I would be very tempted by the Agama , as for truggy value for money the D8T is the go , if you are chasing a D8T kit , I have a few left at silly prices , PM if you would like a price...

so you had a D8, you want an Agama and your avatar is Serpent man am even more confused than you...

just my 2 cents, experience with a new buggy will come really fast if you race it/ rebuild it on weekly basis. you will even forget how to work on the D8 in few monthes. dont forget Rctech man.

i switched from kyosho to Losi for sponsership with Losi Kuwait and my worries were the same as yours and within 2 weeks, i was all over the losi. even before getting the 8ight, i had everything sorted out (spare/option parts) by asking drivers on here and the losi site. next season am switching to Xray (better deal) and i dont have to worry about a thing because i know experience will come really fast.

go for what you really want and ask alot of questions

hope this helps

Ali
