Default Suggestions on 1/8th scale RTR buggies

i am looking to get a 1/8 scale buggy preferably RTR(i have only built one kit which was a Team Losi 1/10th scale truck,i don't plan on doing it again either).. does anybody have any suggestions is to what would be a good one to get.im pretty good at tunning motors and stuff like that..the only thing i have ever had is a few 1/10th scale Nitro trucks..also i don't have a ton of money to put into one since im only 16...it will probably be used for backyard bashing nd just "driving" at some tracks,the closest one is an hour away..its not really that big either.

Default buggie

I have heard alot of bad things about jammins and that is y I don't own one and I have heard some guys say that they don't think that this losi buggy is going to be everything that they are saying I have an Ofna ultra lx comp and an ofna lx pro and I don't have many problems with them at all. If you would like to see them let me know I am selling everything because I have to drive 2 hours to drive them at a track and that is just to far for me

The new 8ight RTR is now in the stores. It looks to be very cool and from what I hear there is only a handful of parts in the kit that are not included with the RTR. The electronics are the best I have seen in a RTR. This car has proven to be a top performer.

Im also in the market for an 1/8th Buggy RTR, and I'd like to pick up an ofna. since they are in my price range. The problem is that they offer nearly 10 buggies. Which are the most recent, or most recommended. I'm looking to race btw, but I dont want to pay "Jammin" prices, as I'm not into off-road too much. Thanks for any info guys!
