Just wait for the right deal and jump on it.
I gotta agree with him, wait it out, took me bout 2 weeks surfing the net before I found my 8ight for 1450 used, best deal ever

Keep looking you'll find it!

We have Caster Drivers in Europe posting on our forums. Go to casterracingusa.com and forums, look for AdriusV. he is from lithuania I believe and he seems to get parts easily.

Or if your looking real hard here on rctech you can find a lightly used 8ight or rc8be for under $250 for a roller or under $400 with electronics. If you spend over a $1000 for a used setup you are paying too much. I have seen some nice rtr setups on ebay for under $500.

I'm hoping he meant 145.

As far as the Nexx8 goes, are there issues with what motors will fit? I noticed it said motor length can be no longer than 70mm.

Of course he meant 145$

I'll definitely get a used buggy with parts. I'm thinking about a NEXX8 also cause it's cheap but I'm wondering after the researches I did if this would be the best choice for durability. Quite hard to find infos concerning this chassis for a 100% racing use

I also just discovered that the room is reduced for the motor looking at squirrel's review. I wouldn't want a truggy sized motor anyway but need to make sure a T8 buggy would fit with no problem and a 2000kv hobbywing also. These are the motors I would use in 4S

Do you have any infos on these points?

Thanks, didn't even know about it! This would be the best bang for the buck in new IMO. I know the LX1 is a tough car.
