Default New RB One buggy???

Hey all: Just saw this over on neobuggy and was wondering is RB making the ONE 1/8th buggy in house or is it just another buggy design that's RB branded? I know most driver sponsor contracts are done for 2011 ,but do you see any RB engine drivers switching over during or after 2011? Thanks for the info

Looks better than the new Hong Nor buggy. Looks on par with some of the current buggies, just needs more bling

Got the car!

I especially like the molded radio tray, makes things easy including removal for cleaning.
The 2-stage air filter is excellent.
Dog bones rear, CVDs front.
Plenty of inward suspension, at rear the inwards bent chassis helps here, too.
Throttle servo ok, but not ideal for the "rubber band" config because it has so much "drag". Replaced it with a brushless futaba that I had lying around. Steering servo fine.
Radio is very basic black plastic 2.4gHz, RX extra small. While it may be ok for occasional running I replaced with DX3R for racing.
Shocks are strong just like the rest of the car seems to be, too.
Very nice mud protections all around in the shafts & outdrives. Smooth lines, help cleaning, quality materials (?)
Weight reasonable 3430gr with the supplied nimh RX batt and AKA tires in running condition tank empty.

My concerns so far: Will the wing stay last? It's bolted onto the rear tower. Also, I remember having issues with some buggies witht the servo saver and steering servo, hopefully this one will work fine and not break in collisions.

Here are some photos from angles that you may not have seen already.

it doesnt look bad for club racing i like the radio tray its simler to the serpent radio tray setup.

i dint know rb made a engine with a pullstart but if its a rb its good quality .

now we need for you to drive it and hear how it does !

I agree. It will take a while but it's getting warmer so hopefully will test drive it soon. Tracks to open will take longer but I will keep you guys informed.

The car can be bought with or without a pullstart motor. I chose the pullstart just to try it out and to see if I could run without a box (although I have one but would like to keep it for onroad alone).

I've been bashing it quite a bit now. So I'd say definitely! Our track is under maintenance (actually building a new one) so haven't got any track time yet.

Here's a shortish video
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


I've changed the rear shocks to the front side of the A-arms, both positions are suppoirted, I like it this way. This picture is after ~50 jumps on a ramp.



Few photos, too, ok

nice now thats some air !

i, watched the video it looks like it turns on a dime and turns sharp also im likeing it the arms kind of look like losi eight buggys arms i would get rid of the pullstart though thats about.

and has nice big bores on it .

it could be a competive racer for club racing .

just need to wait for it to come to the states.
