Default RTR 1/8th Buggy

I'm actually thinking whether there's any tough built RTR buggy, and from the user's comment, CEN is one of the toughest, I've try to convince myself into getting a CEN as a startup but the spare part is an issue in my country...Losi 8ight RTR is more widely available...

What's the good RTR buggy kit to start from? And I'd like to know what's the main differences between a Losi 8ight RTR and a Losi 8ight Pro

thousand thanks

things that made me fascinated bout Losi is as follow:
i. Good RTR Radio (crystal-free)
ii. Does not require starter box
iii. Fairly good engine
iv. After read the new issue of RC Driver

I try to count on the budget on getting used stuffs to start the hobby, I found some used pro-kit, buy some new radio gears and servos, battery packs, etc etc. The cost would be almost the same as buying the brand new Losi RTR...starting to get more confuse...

The Losi RTR is awesome and the company really stands behind their products. If you have any questions about it, or if you end up with one and are looking for advice, don't hesitate to ask or e-mail me.

you will not find a better RTR than the losi 8ight rtr. next would be the jammin X1CR rtr, but it lacks with its radio equipment.

in my opinion you just can't beat a Sportwerks Turmoil.It has the same spektrum radio as the Losi.It comes with a shaft starter and handles like a dream.Couple of weeks ago we had a bug trophy race and a buddy of mine crashed his 8ight and didn't have the parts to fix it...another friend of mine loaned him is back-up Turmoil and he loved it so much he put his 8ight up for sale to buy a Turmoil
