Buggies you mention are quite old now. 1600$ is quite a high budget so you'll be able to drive whatever you want.

What are the brands sold by your local hobby shops?

I drive a JQ and a Durango so I won't be able to help you on this one. But from what I read I would go Xray, Mugen or Losi. I had a 808 but couldn't fix some transmission problems and my old MB5R was too heavy and didn't steer enough for me. This might be solved now with the 2011 808 and MBX6R

So you are going to run on sand and onroad? Are you going to do any racing on a track or just bashing around? Makes a difference. Bashers are not the best racers and racers can bash, but not always the best.

Kyosho 777 wc - old model, check MP9
hyper 7 - very old, check Hyper9, HyperStar
hotbudeis sukker - what is this?

thank you friend with this awesome answers ..

i need to Bash but i know the road is also fun this time because i go to desert i there is nice place with some jumps and small sand waves i think tire can be changed to drive on both places offroad and onroad, from this i need to catch both issues.. i have read little post here and i its really helpful..

what do you think about Xray XB9 / and Kyosho MB9
is there another option to think about ??

Note:
hotbudeis sukker = i also dont know this hehe maybe its the Sacker !

i dont mind to change the engine or other parts to do some racing later, the body is important ..

I'm not pushing any particular brand, but the Team Durango DNX408 is on sale at AMain Hobbies ($370). Browse their selection of buggys and maybe something will interest you.

You might check with the people in UAE. They have a track.

For bashing on sand i would go for something with bigger wheels and ground clearence like a truggy...even those are still really designed to be run on rc offroad tracks.
offroader race cars like these are not the best road cars either, the single speed transmission winds out the motors hard because of the low gearing although they car be geared up a bit but you will lose some takeoff speed.

There is a very nice offroad track in kuwait, they race at night under lights.

Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR is an awesome bargain and a great buggy. I have launched mine into walls without anything breaking. Its also a very popular one for racing, and the RTR engine is a great engine, the radio is top notch, and the telemetry is a nice bonus. I have yet to break anything on it, which is pretty amazing because its been doing cartwheels..

Actually I take that back, I did break a shock cap.. Buy the metal shock caps right away, and just replace them when they break..
