the D8 is good for the money but you add in the options and such and its not that much cheaper than the others. i run HB and im very happy, not complaining, they are great box stock but everyone wants what the pros run so it will cost you more. the Odonnell is great for your money too, 450 for the new SG and no upgrades are ever needed. parts are top quality and the costumer service is beyond great. HB has great costumer service too tho. i think those two are the best bang for your buck.

You should get Losi rtr. Unless you want to use the stuff you have now (engine, radio, etc.) then you should get the losi race roller

GS Storm, Hands down fastest buggy at eevry track i go to. My GS lapped a field of 2.0's and rc8b's like they were stalled! the craftmanship and qualoty is unsurpassed by anything and at a price that beats the competition. But if your just a basher I wouldnt reccomend it as its sole duty is race only. It comes rtr with a pro mod SH motor that gets better runtimes and power than my old junky os speed!

not to be rude,but what are you talking about???Drivers down there must be slow,and there is something wrong with your speed or your tuning skills because the o.s speed is one of the best engines out.

No i Understand your concern, but here in southern california is some of the best drivers in the world! I know its A tough pill to swollow but the GS is an underdog. Held next to a prototype durango it looks close but the durango needs some more refinment until it reaches GS levels. and no my speed was brand new. tuned by the drake himself and run at thunder alley raceway. i thought it was my LOUSy 2.0 making me lose but as soon as i switched to GS i pulled everyone on the straights and once out in front no one was close.


EDit,

heres the truggy version so you can better understand the italian quality of this car

no, unfortunately the cl-1 pro is limited to factory team drivers, besides the RTR GS is so advanced u dont need to spend the extra bucks.
