Default How are the ACME buggys

I just ordered a ACME buggy and was wondering if anyone had some feedback on them?

They are basically huge pieces of garbage. I guess its to late for you now though your already stuck with it. Basically the biggest problem I've seen with them is that the matierals they are made out of absolutely suck. All the metals and plastics are so soft everything just wears out super quick.

If I were you I would just try and sell it before even running it, I'm sure it would be easier to get your money back out fo it then. Then get a nice 1/8th buggy from sportwerks or similar.

There is an australian seller on ebay who moves quite a lot of these things. He's actually done some really good work in modifying a lot of the parts which apparently cause problems (clutch, gearbox). He offers you the choice to order these improved replacements with the buggy or at a later date.

But yeah... i'd sell it ASAP. RC really is a brand name game. Having said this, ive found my XTM to be very durable with fantastic parts support - certainly not what i expected when i got it cheap on ebay.

If you're not too concerned about the $$$ then yeah - try and improve/modify the thing yourself, might get a nifty little basher out of it?
