Default Decisions decisions

Well I'll be getting a new car here soon. And, well I was wondering what I should get. I've narrowed it down to these 3 choices. The GS CL-1, OFNA H8, or the Jammin' CRT. So really I've got 2 choices to make. I'd appreciate any input you guys have on any of this cars. Thanks in advance.

well you have already said jammin crt coming soon in your thread so stick with that, also the other two are buggys so you will need to decide if it's a truggy or buggy you desire.

Well I "desire" both. But I figured I'd go by your guys' input, then decide.

i second that, that buggy is terrible. i can tell you its going to be a tuff decision i personally have a hyper 8 and love it but i have driven a cl-1 which i thought handled great, they are both competitive cars so just go with which one you can get parts for. or which ever one you like the most.

I'm guessing you're not from the US, huh??? I guarantee that if you asked 20 racers in the US, all 20 of them have never seen nor heard that buggy. It does look VERY CHEAP, and it almost exactly resembles the other "knock off" buggies on the market.

dear my pro racer friend, you should bring the photos to a part-time pro asking what its fancy name is when selling in the US. look carefully, if you still have no idea, I like to tell you. seems you care sticker more than racing.

Woods- the car you posted is sold as the RDLogics SHO or the PRP Swift in the US..... Actually a decent car if you change out the engine and find a replacement fuel tank from another manufacturer.......

Thanks woods2007, but I'll keep my re-badged "Hong Nor" buggy. None of this knock-off nonsense.
