Default Hyper 7 PBS RTR.......any good?

I'm thinking of buying this kit. It will be my first in about 10 years. I only have a radio & very good servos. I want to purchase because of starter box, engine, and all other accesories. What do you guys think?

From what Ive seen its problay the best 1/8 for the money, it comes with a good engine worth keeping, Only thing I would upgrade from what ive seen is make sure you get a good steering servo. The only problem I hear is the statrer box sometimes has a tough time starting the 8 port engine

i myslef just got into 1/8 scale buggy not too long ago, and i bought me the pbs rtr becuase of the dollar value, and it is very race ready.

a few months have passed, and i've rebuilt everything. i stand to say that my rig is as competive as the next guys.

If you get the pbs I recomended eventually getting some paul Coleman racing parts, not only do they look good but the aslo stiffen the car. A guy I race with has some on is pbs, looks killer

i agree w/ tony.

it's a little bit pricey for the paul coleman components, but they're very trick. i've upgraded everything ecept the steering rack. the guys at nitrohouse said that it has a tendency to bind. other than that, the other components are beyond top notch.

I like my pbs. The starter box does not do the job. The servos are too weak to race with. The Hyper 8 port is a good,but a tight motor. Make sure to turn the motor after top dead center. The car is competitive on the track. I currently working on set-up as I have never raced 1/8th and I am on-road racer.
