Here's the rctech thread:
http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=100122

I have one, but am not a buggy expert. But I can say:

Buy the slipper clutch to save the gears.

Buy universals to replace all 4 dogbones. There is so much suspension travel the dogbones can and do pop out.

I've heard people complain about the shocks, but I haven't had problems.

Probably should buy a selection of springs to adjust the ride.

Also, the chassis is small. You'll probably need a small ESC.

Hope I didn't scare you away, but that's what I've experienced.

not at all. all those thigns are fine. small esc is better, lighter weight. i can deal with having to get new bones, thats not expensive. and shocks are no problem to me

the cool thing about them is you can get stuff on ebay DIRT cheap for them, not sure of the quality of the stuff, but i've bought 3racing stuff before and was happy with it, so i'm sure its decent stuff,
