Default what entry level buggy

hello, I am thinking about getting an entry level buggy. I would like your guys opinion. I was thinking of the Ofna Ultra Lx Pro but am open to suggestions. I am not planning on racing competition, pretty much just bashing, but I want it to be fast.. Thanks.

not a bad choice for bashing. inexpensive and already built. 0 to fun in less than 60 seconds!

...well, not exactly, but you get the picture

For a few bux more you can get a MBX pro which has 8mm cvd's and dogbones plus PBS up front. I have two of them and they take a great beating and nothing broken yet.

I got my son the LX Pro. Its a good buggy for him since hes only 10 and just bashes. My brother got the MBX Pro for about $30 more and he got lucky and got an updated one that came with a .26. I think the MBX pro is worth the extra $$$. They will both take a good beating though. I would replace the steering servo on either one though. The standard Airtronics steering servo just dont cut it.

Yeah, the second one I got had the .26 in it, a lot easier engine to break in than the .25. Forgot about the servos, I upgraded to Hitec 645mg before I even fired them up, had already heard the steering wuldn't hold up for very long. My daughter (13) races the bugg with the 25 and she can hold her own pretty good against the big boys.
