Default Would a buggy be able to handle

would a buggy be able to handle big jumps like steps or will i need a monster truck.

i had the RC10B3 in mind and i will be the factory team version of it,

now i was thinking if the b3 had alu arms etc would i just be able to get hard springs and thick oil and set them as high as they will go and then be done with it? or do i really need to buy a monster truck?

cheers for any help

if you just want to bash, i say no way get a b3 unless youre planning on racing. if u r jumping steps and stuff and you want to keep it electric, get a monster truck such as an emaxx or a truck like a t3 or hpi mt. my 2 cents

If you want to get stupid, get the monster truck. At some tracks they do have a class for monster trucks. I own an E-Maxx and this thing is FAST! Most buggies are faster, though. If you get an E-Maxx or T-Maxx, be sure to get aluminum shock towers. I went through 10 shock towers before I switched to aluminum. If you want to race, go for the buggy. It's probably easier to avoid driving over barriers anyway.Monster truck racing doesn't have much for competition, usually.

Default i have one

i have an rc10b3 factory team. it can handle a lot but i dont know about stairs. i have never try jumping steps i am pretty sure it coul hand it only if you landed on all fours. i know that the rc10b4 can take a beating because i watched billy easton in Tacoma WA case a huge jump and the whole front end got caught and it landed on all fours and kept going. just letting you know Rcfreak
