I can tell you from experience that the ultra lx one is a good buggy to learn on and bash with. The hyper 7 is also a good buggy and very durable as well.

I have had both the hyper7 and the ultra lx one. I actually prefer the hyper 7 but it will depend on your local hobby shop in terms of parts that they carry. In the three gallons of bashing on my hyper 7 I never broke any parts but I knew if I did that my local hobby shop carried a full line of Ofna parts to fix whatever I may have broken.

Ultimately it will depend on parts availability. If your local LHS has parts for Losi then buy Losi. If they have parts for Ofna, buy an Ofna. The worst part about this hobby is waiting on parts if your local LHS doesnt have them in stock. I am quickly regretting my purchase of a JQ product JUST because of that reason.

If you are bashing, that buggy is great to start off with. Didn't do well on the track, although it would help you get used to what you will see at the track.

For a basher, I don't know of a better buggy for your money out there.

Hey.
I have one of them and it is a great buggy for beginners. It was my first car and it got me into the hobby great. The only problem I hav had is the diff gear coming off and the bevel and diff gear stripping. Went well at the track and I was able to keep up with some of the rc8b's and 8ight's after some testing and setup.
