Questions?? Need some help

Question? I'm looking into getting a 1/8 scale Ofna 9.5 Violator Buggy. Would that be a good car to get for off road racing on the tracks. I can't afford a Kyosho. Wish I could. I trading my Team Assoc T4 RTR for it. What you think. I need so insight.Thanks.

there is a reason it is called a violator if you ever wanted to race it then you would have to change the fuel tank get shorter front and rear cvd's
smaller motor. IMO i had one of these buggys and it cost more to get it race ready than it would to buy a Jammin X1 CR or hyper 8/7
i finally gave up on the thing a bought a Jammin which has tons of upgrades
and parts available for it. IMO i would NOT buy it just because of personal experiences,now for bashing it is alright but like i said there aren't many parts for it compared to the Jammin.
