This buggy has been great to me so far. Ofna is durable and everything holds together well...especially for the beating i put it through. I only broke the steering knuckles, but glue and wire fixed that right up! And the stock servos should be swapped immediately. The Picco engine is great for the price of the whole RTR, nice buggy.

Can you compete? The best drivers can take any buggy and win with it...just practice practice practice!

It's a great buggy. My brother bought it at the beginning of this year and other than changing out servos and some different tires he has it running great. Practice makes all the difference. And the Picco motor in it is AMAZING!

+1 my current and first 1/8th buggy is the MBX Pro and so far I've carwheeled it at the end of straights, endo front flipped a few times, and jumped into a tree on accident and it's holding up like a tank.
