do you want to race?

best race buggies are kyosho and mugen

kyosho 7.5 kanai 2 is a proven performer

mugen mbx5 is a new buggy that will be out soon only time will tell whether it is a better buggy than kanai

i am saving for a mbx5 now i am very happy with my mbx4xr and think that the new mugen buggy may be better than kanai or at least even

kanai has been the buggy to have for a while but they cost alot

the ofna hyper 7 and 9.5 are pretty good buggies also and both are available ready to run

i have also heard gs storm isnt to bad either

this car is very stable during cornering and easy to set up

for bashing i say go for an ofna. they now include the new .25 which is suppose to have tons of power. but if for racing, get the kyosho or mugan mentioned above.

I got a sorm rtr I have spoken with others that have them and all the response was great. With the correct options they are great handling buggies for the money. I have yet to race mine yet, I have alot of options already. I can keep you posted as I will race the the last weekend of this month.
