I have had 3 9.5 Pro's...and I like them. The 9.5 is pretty much the same as the Ravager. The 9.5 Pro is more blinged. They're the most solid buggy out there. I don't think it's a high level competition buggy...but it's a good entry level buggy. Awesome basher.

I used to have 2 years ago. It ok at best. Not as smooth as expensive buggies. Basically its ok for club racing, but you have to know how to tune and maintain a car first. For competitive racing I would not recommend it. Also throw out all the included electronics as they are all garbage.

*fixed it SUNA, lol*

Way to contradict yourself. Know what you mean for sure though. It's good for weekend racing...but not the ticket for big races.

Personally I like them...for the stage I'm at. I'm a basher who's going to race this year. I wanted the most solid buggy out there to take the beatings of my poor driving. The car is tough...it's heavy for those rough tracks...and parts are cheap and everywhere. You can pick up sweet 9.5 Pro rollers on eBay for cheap. Just don't deal with dr350z.

I raced one last season at the club level. Keep plenty of spare spindles and maybe c hubs. I went through plenty of rtr spindles. Or upgrade to cnc alum. Besides that I never broke anything even after a hard days bashing including a couple of unsuccessful backflip attempts which ended up in nose dives!! Great basher!!!

what is the difference from the 9.5 rtr to the ravager rtr besides the motor? would it be better getting the 9.5 rtr for some reason?

btw, thanks for the replys.

I believe the main difference between the Ravager and the 9.5 is the front uni's.
