Default 1/8 buggy or revo?

Hello to all! I am new to this forum and i need an opinion on this subject.I currently own a t-maxx and love it for bashing but I recently went to my first off road race and all I can say is WOW!!! I want to race.My maxx is set up for heavy bashing and I would rather buy something new for racing.I was impressed with the revos and the buggies and need some opinions on both. thanks!

Depends what is more popular at the club you plan racing at. Although the Revo's are good, the buggies are pure racers.

Right now I own a hyper7 RTR and a Savage SS. I love my savage, but hands down would rather race the buggy. There's nothing like the brute power, great handling, and getting big airtime over jumps. I'll leave my savage for pleasure bashing and the buggy for racing, but even if I did decide to race it, I'd just throw it on the track as it sits now for fun.

Go with the 1/8 buggy. Once you try it, you're gonna love it.

Thanks to all who replied,I can only spend about $500 to $600,the lhs and the track here both have the sportwerks mayhem for that price.Everyone around raves on how good it is,but I feel I'm getting a biased opinion from them.Although the Meyhem is winning most of the races at the track (so I'm told ),What other options for a good buggy?Thanks again!

The Sportweks is a great RTR buggy, I'd also look at the new Ofna Jammin RTR comming out, or the reliable Hyper 7 PCR version (newest) RTR. I purchased mine for something like $450 from ultimatehobbies, nice thing is that it comes with a starter box, and decent 90oz servo's to get going with. Try ebay as well, atleast from some of the shops that put stuff on there, stay away from used individual sellers who have beat the crap out of theres stuff just learning to drive!

would you happen to have any links or info about the ofna jammin? Or the hyper?I would like to consider all options before I decide.MY lhs had an ofna with a .21 but the guy told me they're not as good as the mayhem(prolly his opinion),But I need many opinions so I can make my own. Thanks!
