Does anyone know if there are aftermarket versions of the front bulkhead set for the Inferno MP7.5? I'm talking about part IF112 if that's any help, because I broke the part that the front shock tower is held to.

Thai, no aftermarket part that i've ever seen for that. Luckily it is very rare to break those though, it takes a really bad crash and a really strong shock tower.....so a replacement part should be fine................Jim

I have been considering a 1/8 scale buggy and was wondering the pros and coons. When it comes to offroad I run trucks but I hear buggies are alot more durable.

Pros:

- Virtually indestructable, unless you crash head-on with something like a rock or wall.

- Not sure if this is agreeable with everyone, but I found this R/C class the easiest to drive and the controls are more forgiving.

Cons:

- Kits are expensive. (Most kits are running about $350 and up)

- Depending on which buggy you go with, parts may not be carried by all Hobby shops and they are more expensive compared to other classes.

If you were to ask me if I would get a 1/8th scale buggy again if I started all over, I would definitely say yes. I found the building process fun and definitely do not mind the maintenance. Plus, these cars look great sitting on shelves.

The 1/8th scale buggies seems to have a more predictable handling characteristics overall and is easier to recover from a driving error in my opinion, such as entering a corner too fast. This may have to do with the drivetrain, since most stadium trucks are 2WD, they do not offer that "total control" feel that these buggies posess. I also think these cars are a lot more stable at high speeds, mainly due to their drivetrain and the weight. I remember driving a friend's Nitro Rustler and I had a hard time keeping it going straight at high speeds, whereas I have total control of my Kyosho in similar situations.

nitrous36, most of the better drivers race stadium 1/10th trucks, but 2wd isn't for every racer. 2wd trucks are a bit less forgiving to rough driving and mistakes and also require some throttle control, something alot of 1/8th scale racers prefer not to use, LOL.......If you are only bashing on your won, either will be fun, a 1/10th truck would be cheaper. If your club racing 1/8th is the hottest thing right now, since everyone can "feel" competitive and get away with aggressive driving(less broken parts, etc).

Be prepared though, the longer you race only 1/8th scale the more likely your driving is to deteriorate, since there is less need for throttle control...................Both are fun with the right group of racers on the track!........Jim

Throttle control and running lines is what sets the best guys from the rest of the guys. I see it all the time and it completely amazes me. I'm one of the "rest" of the guys still.

The good guys look like they are driving so slow, and just kill everybody in the corners. 1/8, 2wd, whatever.
