Ae really needs to make those guys some new buggys, with how old it is I'm sure they can really do some updating. Looking at the ae it almost looks like like it's based in the mp777 days (wide chassis) the truck tho is boss, maifizzle was going really good everywhere. Bad luck tebo, first time it's gone this bad in a while now. We will see if cav can keep it up hopefully he can really turn it up again and be a front runner winning. Tebo really killed the heat race b4 the main, he lapped everyone but maifeild 2 times, idk if he ever lapped maifeild but he was close at 1 point, only cav was in the other quali that's was right b4, I think cav was going good. Kortz was on it!! I can't wait to race another big race here soon. It should be fun. I didnt get to race this race but any open or sportsman/intermediate class I'll do!!

Wider is better llol... On tracks like that the narrow buggies have hard time in the bumps. but that RC8 was dialed it looked so planted and easy to drive VS the other cars i seen i mean even tebo was fast but he had his hands full..

kyosho is wide too, no issues there. only "narrow" buggies right now are losi, agama and mugen, not even half the field.

the wider heavier buggies seem to be doing better than anything lately. May see a comeback of them. There just more stable and goes threw bumps better.

+1, never understood why everyone want to lighten there cars/trucks/buggies, the heavier they are they stick to the ground making steering, traction...much better. i see all the lightened cars....ect here all over the place like their racing on ice!!!

When the trand started it was for fuel mileage. The motors of today make more power making the light weight buggys hard to drive, while saving enough fuel when in the heavier buggies. I have been a narrow buggy guy for a while, and let me tell you. I just bought an MP9 because they handle rough so much better.

well i know, pro drivers like that are on a diffrent level and its the driver that wins the race but its the "truggy/buggy to from experience.

i drove narrow chassis, like losi buggy and "truggy 1.0 s " and now the rc8t ce is kind of wide and it just floats over bumps and ruts and easier to drive.

weight on the "truggys and buggys dont really seem to be a issue really sure light weight 1/8 s do jump better thats a fact but they do bottom out harder on landings though.

its not smoke and mirrors why ae and kyosho is been killing everybody.

wish i could remember the article i read, but it showed where prodriver (dnt rem who now) took a stock D8 outta the box and ran on a big open loose outdoor track...then took same motor and radio tray out and put it in a hara ed D8 w/all lightened parts and the end result was just a hair faster lap times and the heavy stock D8....sorry i cant reference the website i was on where i read that...but any how makes sense tho

th ething that was killing the AE buggy was the extreme shock angles. Now that they have that corrected, the buggy is dialed on any surface. I hope they come out with a Maifield edition....or something, but I imagine that's in the works

It's more driver than car... It always has been. Thats not to say a "real good" car isn't needed. Ignore these 1/8 results and lets visit the 1/10 Electric Buggy (2wd or 4wd) class for a minute. Oh wait, its still Maifield (fastest driver in the world), Tebo (most consistent driver in the world) and Cavalieri (a little of both of the others and somewhere in between). Sure, I haven't listed everyone that is crazy fast and there are plenty of them, but those 3 will be fighting for the win at almost any event, anywhere in the world.

The best are just the best no matter how you look at it. Leave mechanical gremlins out and that buggy race probably could have finished with all 3 within 1-2 sec. of each other... Oh, and nearly 3 laps ahead of the rest of the field.
