If you are starting from scratch and this is your first RC nitro vehicle, you cannot beat the Losi 8ight-T RTR hands down. It comes with a great radio (which can store up to 10 model settings), a starter box, and is reasonably race-ready right out of the box. About the only thing you may end up needing to upgrade sooner than later is the steering servo, which is true of any RTR vehicle. But for what you get, I personally don't think there's anything that beats it.

The only thing better I could see would be buying an entire set of used stuff from someone you KNOW is reputable, that's in good shape, for a really good price. It's a risky venture though, since there's always a chance that you end up with an abused, worn out kit and/or an engine that is due for a rebuild.

Even still......hard to beat what you get with the Losi RTR kit, for the price. I recently built a D8T kit which is one of the cheapest brandname kits out there, and even already having a transmitter, total build cost for kit, servos, receiver, engine, pipe, starter box, and batteries ran around $1000. I didn't pick out the cheapest parts, but I certainly didn't pick out the most expensive either.

Yeah your right, the truggys are expensive. Thats kinda why I was thinking of trying to find a good used one with maybe some extras ya know?

Hot Bodies D8T is arguably the best bang for the buck truggy on the market. Mate it with a werks B5 or nVision some electronics, and your in the game pretty cheaply..

Alot of guys running Buggy brands that don't offer a Truggy are running the D8T or the Mugen MBX6T..

I was looking at the msrp. Didnt realize it was so low. I was looking at it and couldnt quite find out for certain. Does that include an engine?
