Default Help finding a buggy!

I am thinking of ditching My Kyosho DST for something quicker and better
My maximum price on my budget is around 300, Ive seen the HPI Trophy 3.5 and the Ansmann Virus. I will definitely be doing bashing with it and not racing and I would say that i'm not too bad at driving rc's. Any Ideas?

Bash or not bashing never buy a cheap off brand car. Get a losi 810 or somthing like that other than a car parts cant be found for it. Also LHS can order parts.

Ive looked into racing now, and i think bashing would be a bit boring. So i expanded my budget and am now looking at the Losi 8ight 2.0eu. Are they good? Is there anything better?

Yes, the Losi is a great buggy. There are many good buggies out there. RC8B, Xray 808, D8, MBX6, Serpent Cobra, Agama are just some. New buggies are being released as we speak for example, JQ and Durango.

Once you have raced, bashing seems boring. See what buggy is popular at your local track and what parts are available at your local hobby shops. You want to make sure you can get parts later if you break and it helps when other people at the track run the same buggy. Many times you car borrow spare parts from someone else and then just buy the part for them the following week.

Personally, I have run the RC8, 808 and the Losi. Next week I will be running the Cobra. The 808 is a very good car and easy to drive but didn't have enough steering for me. The losi had plenty of steering and I really liked the car. I am switching to Cobra just to try something different.

Good luck!

The Losi is looking like the best choice for me so far!
Unless theres something out there MUCH better I'll probably go for it, Ill check my Local track aswell!
