I believe i have a buyer on my savage, lets see if he follows through.
Drive shafts popping out is pretty much a thing of the past, unless you RUN a whole bunch of droop.. The problem is whent he arms have alot of wear and the drive cups have a alot of wear also. Keep the arms in good shape and maintain your diffs and you won't have much if any problems..

Get a rc8.2. I have had a buggy since may so I am still new to buggiesmyself. I love it. Its easy to get parts for and that thing is built.They are so different compared to my monster trucks. Any little change to it changes the way it drives I have noticed unlike the monster trucks where any changes make no serious difference. Is your budget 500 total? You could make that budget getting a new rtr. But at the same time you could buy a used buggy that has all the goodies. Ebay would probably be the best place to look. I know when I did my looking I spoke with alot of people at the tracks. I looked for a few months before making my final decision.

Why doesn't people ever think about LOSI. Seriously they are lightyears past every other buggy exept probably the (I seriously can't think of any car that's as good overall). Just sayin n I don't really want any hard time saying this but iv owned ae tamiya mp9, overall working on a LOSI is 10 times easier, I never have to worry ever about breaking anything other then shock bottoms wich can b fixed with the tlr upgraded bottoms, my drivetrain rolls better covered in mud then a freshly cleaned ae car, call me a fan boy if u like but I know b4 I switched to losi I was a hater cause everyone had one, then I got lucky to score a sponsorship n still wasn't happy to switch but logically couldn't pass it up, now I'm saying strait up I'd buy this brand full price b4 going any other way even if I had a deal, there honestly perfect for ppl like me who barely check nuts n bolts during the day. My opinion is get a losi, every gallon of use do maintenance n don't worry about a thing cause they're the beeeest


Not a fanboy

I would disagree that the Losi is better then other buggies available.. If you mean the RTR then yes, but the car itself is just as good or bad as the guy driving it..

I love my 8ight, But there are a few real good buggies out there. Best thing about the 8ight is the availability of parts and track support.

I almost bought an 8ight, but the seller flaked out.

If you check my link, I bought a d8.
