The buggy is so planted on the ground it's sick! I have finished and won my fair share of races with it and not even needed a turn marshal a single time to flip me over and these are 15-20 minute mains I was in. I never like buggies that much before I got my ZX1-R. Were hard to drive and I did not like the twitchyness of buggies. Not anymore as I am liking the buggy more than my truggy now. It is the most stable buggy I have ever driven.

We are offering partial and considering price, it is amazingly fair. We will have batteries, motor, esc in about a week, but if you race pro, we are working out deals with Castle and Maxamps for our team members. Panther has committed to our team, so we have the hookup there. Caster literally has everything possible for 1/8 scale except for fuel and glowplugs.
