Buggy will teach you to be more precise and make you a better driver in the long run.

That and a aluminum servo horn for steering. Those are the only items I have upgraded on the rigg and it runs great.

Okay leaning towards the buggy now, I would much rather become more skill full than drive a bigger machine... Plus setting it up will be a breeze tons of friendly track members.

Also the buggy is cheaper to maintain. Less wear on bearings and axles, as well as tires(track dependent). Clutch lasts longer and the tires are cheaper.

And it's more fun to race. I used to place higher with my truggy, but still prefer buggy.

The dx3s is a good radio, very light and comfortable. But I still feel more comfortable with my 4pk. Had I not had the 4pk already when I got my XXL truck, I would have stuck with Spektrum.

if you have big hands the dx3s is alittle uncomfortable to use, but very good radio, easy to navigate.
