Thanks for all of your Help,

really???? or is it how slow can i go? you are picking the wrong equipment for a world record, for world record, you will need a much more stable platform (buggy) a race .21 drag modified (about $800.00 engine alone and your lucky to get a gallon from it) or good brushless with good motors (neu), batteries (90c or better) a good esc (tekin rx8).

True, Nanda Racing may not be a popular or even known brand in the U.S.A. but that doesn't mean that it's not any good. If you have not driven one or do not own one, you should not speak badly about it. I own one and I'm quite happy with it. It's as raceable and customizable as many other buggies from the well-known manufacturers. Just to be clear, I'm not a 'fan boy' as I've driven a number of different buggies, including those from XRAY and Mugen Seiki and Team Associated and Hot Bodies and Losi. In my experience, it's 90% driver and 10% vehicle. I'm only racing at a club level and, in truth, the Exceed RC MadFire Racing Edition is competitive, as is ANY buggy that is set up based on the driver's preference. Just my 2 cents.

I have never owned one, but several people that have bought them have brought them into our hobby shop.
I cant say anything good about it, and I will just leave it at that.

Hmm.. that is worrying, the record I am trying to go for is the longest R/C Car race. I want to get the buggy because I figure that it will be a lot more durable because it is meant to be raced on un even terrain and even my damaged sidewalk won't be a challenge for it because a on road car would get destroyed. Also because this is about endurance I need a lot of space to route fans and cooling lines because I need to develop a water rolled system. So the buggy is perfect and the price is very affordable. Which do you guys recommend the RE or the LE? http://www.exceedrc.com/18marcrareco.html

If you want endurance you're going to need a quality vehicle. Even 45 minute mains are hard on a lot of vehicles. That's just my 2 cents though. If you want endurance you're looking at the wrong type of buggies.

So 200 miles in one day will destroy it right? I only can spend 200-300 on the buggy and I do plan to install a cooling system so that might give it a longer life. Also it will be done in December when the temperature is lower. So I am playing a gamble and I would really appreciate some advice. It is a smooth terrain (parking lot) and the temps are low, I need reliability and moderate speed, any suggestion for my requirements and budget?

200 miles. First you need an engine that can take that abuse, I can think of none. And IMO there is NO buggy that will go 200 miles straight and not break.

Will you be the only participant? Fyi, a race typically involves more than one participant.

What is a water rolled system? Did you mean water cooled? Cooling will be the least of the problems.

200 miles of nitro fuel won't be cheap.
