Default Losi 22 rtr electronics any good?

My brother is thinking about buying this buggy to start racing at our local track and is wondering if the motor esc combo is fairly reliable or is it going to be likely he'll need an aftermarket one quickly?

If he plans to run stock class its good. But it cant do like a 8.5 motor for a mod class.

Most stock classes are 17.5, and the RTR is 13.5....

In that case it should be good as a starter in the mod class then, get a 17.5 if you want to run stock.

Default 22 rtr

We have been running that system for a few weeks now and have not had any problems. The only thing I would change about it would be more brake power.

The electronics seem to decent. I wouldn't run anything larger then the 13.5 that comes with it on the esc though. It is a great starter buggy. You can always change later if he wants more power.

Yeah, but how many guys do you know "just start racing", and jump right into the mod 2wd buggy class? None..

The problem with the RTR 22, is that it is a LOT more expensive than the B4.1 RTR, but who's electronics you will end up upgrading relatively quickly anyway... If you are new to racing buggy and want to save money, the RTR b4.1 is a lot more bang for the buck.

If you want to spend less money in TOTAL... then buy a kit and buying race quality electronics right off the bat. This way you are not buying twice. However if you aren't sure this is something you are going to stick with, the cheaper RTR gear can save some dough initially.
