sad reality?
you have 6billion+ people you will have 6Billion+ "Opinions"

"Too Many Factors" to involve?
your best bet if you like the Associated go that route, because no matter
good or bad? if you bought something else? in your mind
you may always wonder "Should I have gotten the...???"
and vice versa....for any other brand you may be looking into......

think of it like this..
if we all acted,talked,and drove the same with the same
driving "Abilities" we would drive the same cars...??? right...

but were not, thank goodness !!!....LOL
Mugen,Losi,Associated,X-Ray,Kyosho and what ever brands are out?
there all good quality and designed to do the job intended.....
i never came across a bad car...???
just drivers on a "Learning Curve" to be nice about it.....
(good grief!! i remember when i started WOW,i couldnt drive to save my life..LOL)
"Every Car will BREAK" every car will have problems, to vary
from the Operator of the car........
and you'll hear the same
"Well i been driving this brand for 10years and i had no problems?

ok, but what about the 11 years they been driving???
the year before they broke or had problems...???
maybe went through 3 or 4 brands? then got better at driving?????

"FanBoyz" will always be biased, but a "Racer" can help you find the car
best for you....
if you can, see if you can try one or 2 different kinds ?
maybe a friend at the track could let you try one to get an overall "Feel"
but may be hard since they may have it set up how they drive etc.
even then be hard to say if it had been put together correctly?
maybe parts are still breaking in etc. etc.
but maybe could get a "General Idea"......

but if there were "Only" the 2 ...???
a Losi or a Associated...???
thats a tough one...???? too many FanBoyz to over exaggerate influances?
they both have there pro's and Cons..????
but this much for sure there both well thought platforms.....
and you wont go wrong with either.......
but if you race?, be sure your shops have parts if and when you need
to replace or if the car breaks.....

i would say like a good saying a chain is only as strong as it's
weakest link......
meaning if bought car "X" and broke a 2.00 part? that the shop doesnt carry?
cause not a car they Normally carry...???
well the day is over and packing up and heading home !!!

but if your one that buys parts online? and maybe doesnt mind wating?
"Any Car is Perfect"..........

in the meantime dont forget to have fun !!!!

Any buggy can well out there it pretty much comes down to your favorite color and parts availability and what most people run at your local track

In my area there is a racing team for at least 6-8 mfg's. So if you go by what's raced locally you will be very confused.

There are so many good handling buggies. They are just different in maintenance and wear. To me the secret is keep everything clean and fresh functioning properly.
