I'd say this a good buggy.

But it depends on what you're going to do w\ it. If you're going to race it every once in a while, the Lightning Pro 2 is probably the car of choice. If you're only going to bash, the RR is the better buy.

Travis Amezcua, Brian Kinwald, & Atsushi Hara all race the Hot Bodies car. Amezcua has said before that he didn't have to do much maintenance on it to get it running quickly. Shows enough about RTRs if you ask me.

This is also very similar to Kyosho's older car, the K3. I've heard rumors that some of the parts from Kyosho fit on it, so if that's true, that's a lot less of hassle getting parts, seeing as I don't think too many hobby stores sell a variety of Hot Bodies parts.

Overall, its a good choice. Good luck.

I've owned a k2 and a k3 and the lighting is the closet thing to a kyosho buggy I've seen, handles great for a rtr

I'll put it to you this way, A buddy of mine had one and I drove it and I thought for a rtr it handled good. But If I was in the market for a rtr I would consider the Jammin x1 rtr, supposed to be awsome for rtr

The price is low because Hot Bodies is still a small company, they probably think less dough = more budget racers, which ofcourse would be good for them. I dont think it has anything to do with the car itself .
