Default Buggies For Jumping

Hi people im thinking of selling my MTX-3 and all my onroad stuff and buying a off road buggie or truck.

I want one for JUMPS and when i say JUMPS in mine BIG ONES.
You guys now XXXMAIN hardcore jumps. What would you think is the best buggie or truck for jumps.

What is better for jumping TRUCKS OR BUGGIES.

For sick air nothing will beat a 1/8 buggy. Go with either a Kyosho 7.5 or a Mugen, you will be pleased with either one.
