Default looking for a new 1/8 buggy

i have had a look at ofna
i like the ultra MBX comp and ultra LX comp
are these any good ?
i dont race so i want a basher/racer i will race against friends.
not too expensive around 300 or under
RTR and electric start or roto or something like that
the MBX is the only one i found that matches these, im not sure on price though
any suggestions on other buggys?
advice?

If you don't plan on seriously racing, then the Ultra LX is fine. I personally don't like it because it's a bit heavier compared to other 1/8th scales. The Force .26 that comes with it gives the buggy a good straight-line acceleration, but the overall handling leaves much to be desired. I've driven my friend's Ultra LX and I noticed it has a lot of body roll and poor stability in the corners.

Then get it. It's not a bad car by any means, but I think it could be a lot better. Ofna parts are pretty easy to find, so it'll be good for bashing.
