Those are all good buggies as are many others, I know your just lookig for advice or help but ultimately its up to you and what you like or if you need help at the track or parts support, dont rely on opinions, go to the track and see for yourself and base your decisions on those points.

Track support and parts support is important when just getting into racing. Most people at my track have Losi buggies and my lhs has a good supply of losi parts, so it was an easy choice to go with Losi. I've seen people out of racing a week or two waiting on parts, bad deal.

Hard to go wrong with what you have listed. Any of the big name buggies are good.

As the others said, see what your local hobby shops are stocking and what others are racing at your local track. That way you've got guys that can guide you on setup and maintenance and parts availability should you need it.

That's rare. Next I'd visit the track you think you'll race at the most and see what guys are running the most of and go from there.
