Straight away runs top speed you want to buy electric. With a brushless motor and ballistic lipos and heavy gearing you can get an electric car up to 100 MPH. Cannot even come close with a glow engine

Default is this the best rtr set????

Losiís 1/8-scale 8IGHT 2.0 Ready-To-Run Nitro Buggy... Hey guys back on topic does this look like the top contender??? It doesn't look like the fastest out of the bunch but it does have the best of the best! Please advise if you have any input... It's either this kit or going with MUGEN MBX6 Buggy with a Go GX7R engine. I know they are world apart in final OTD price but is the difference worth paying and going with top components and the

Mugen MBX6 kit. $549
Futaba 3PMX or Spektrum DXS-2 telemetery radio $200
Mugen starter box $140
Go GXR7R $240 WITH Tuned pipe and header
Hitech servos $150 for set of 2
SO TOTAL IS ABOUT $1250!!!

LOSI 8IGHT 2.0 RTR $699 OTD TURN KEY BUT A LITTLE SLOWER...
PLEASE HELP ME!!! LOL

The LOSI 8ight 2.0 RTR comes with a starter box and DX3S. With the LOSI motors you can add a turbo head button and RE-11 pipe for $95. Complete kit with head button and pipe is under $800. The 8ight T 2.0 comes with a .28 and is more durable. Ever consider an OFNA DM-1? It's a 1/8 scale on road with a two speed and a .28.

What video is needed? I bought it at the Shizuoka hobby show and took the train back. Nozomi express = express bullet train service. I guess people are too busy writing sponsorship on signatures to read on here.

Default stability of truggy vs buggy

Hey how much of stability difference is there between the buggy and truggy??? if you have any experience please advise. I'm only going to be bashing and having my Jack Russel chase it down so jumps and sharp angle turns are not an issue...

Truggy is a LOT more stable. And the Losi is the best "package deal" available.
