There is no best buggy. Every buggy has its strengths and weaknesses. Plus, there have been about 10 or so threads all asking the same question with all kinds of different responses. Just use the search feature and search for the threads. The best thing to do is assess your budget, go to your local track/hobby shop and talk to the guys who run different brands, then go from there. Guys who run Mugen will tell you Mugens are best, Losi drivers say Losi's can't be beat, etc. etc.

I will say one things its not the buggy its the driver you can take the top drivers in the world and they can drive and prob with with any buggy out there. so the answer is find something you can get parts for and something that fits your driven style thats the bottom line.

Well saying there isnt a best car is wrong cause there is a "best car" if you look at the overall picture.
Its just almost impossible to decide which it is. My bet would be on the more expensive cars like Kyosho and XRAY however the differences are so extremely tiny that you or the pro drivers wont be affected by it.

The magic is not in the car its in the driver.

You may aske the question regarding build quality/quality of parts as there is a variance in that, but you could probably group a few in the low end, middle of the road, and high end as far as quality goes.

The best buggy by far is the Nigerian Prince 8b. It's so bloody awesome that it doenst have a website, and so seecretive that there are no photos of it known in existence. You do pay deerly for super high quality of the product though. I can get one of these fantastic guranteed to win you all the races you enter buggies, but you'll have to send me some moeny direct deposit to my bank account. Don't worry about giving me your postage details.... Nigerian Prince finds you.
