I'm an electric fan, so I'll just say a couple of things:

1) My Mate has a Rex-X, and the thing goes ok, but it could use a high tourque servo in it for the steering as it tends to lock occasionally.

2) I prefer my electric brushless setup. It's been cheaper to set up (albeit it's all 2nd hand) and i don't have the temperature problem he does. Plus, My packs are all good and since i have heaps i can run it for longer, harder.

you might want to look into the CEN matrix, it is a nice RTR, and comes with a good radio too,

of the ones you listed, i would probally go wiht the Kyosho, it seems like the best value to me at the prices you listed,

Out of the choices you listed I would get the Hyper 7. It is durable (diffs are full diffs with steel ring, pinions, and spur unlike the Kyosho) and it handles pretty well. The Hong Nor X1 RTR car would also probably be a good choice if it is available.

i would say the GS...most folks dont even know about them...but a guy i rarce with showed me one and they have a agood bit on most buggy's...

NO kyosho...the 777 maybe...but the inferno...NO...but i have heard lots about the hyper 7...but if you ever sell...its already been superceeded by the hyper 8...not a big deal...and also look into the jammin buggy...i drove one and it felt better than my xray...and that was right out of the box...

The storm plus is actually $500
also how would an avenger pro with a STS .21 racing engine go. Or are these two buggies outdated by the CL-1.
Or what about the REX-X

i see your in the UK

the rex is the same thing as an xtm buggy i had one i got in a package deal

i wouldnt take another one for free unless it was the xtm pro just to bash


the hyper 7 is real big in the UK so it should be real easy to find parts for

the gs i had a few gs storm pro's there not bad at all i would take one over a hyper 7 if it was a pro version

if it was me i would go with what is easy to get parts for so you know you wont be waiting for the mail man every day for a stupid part you could have spend a few bucks more on buying retail at a shop

there are even a few sellers from the UK on ebay that sell alot of hyper 7 parts a chance to save some $$$$$

i had a load of hyper 7's

i have a pro roller right now i will be selling soon
