Default Awesome

the cactus ep is a very good handling buggy. you cant beat it for 154.00 from rcmart. the 12.5 mm coated shocks are actually awesome, better quality than ae and most other brands i've tried. and by the end of my first day running it I was doing the same lap times as I can with my b4.1 that I have been tuning for months and months. I cant get either to lap as fast as my x-6 tho

I had a 69t kimbrogh spur for a b4, and b4 slipper pads, drop on and go. Used B4 carbide balls too.

Got to race this for the first time today. Ive had many buggies. This one is as good as any, but on the cheap. I enjoyed it.

Yessir, I have one on my buggy right now.

One other spare you may want to pick up is a set of Durango 210 rear axles. Either the whole set (TDR210032) or just the axle (TDR310254).

yea the shipping kills it. I would just order the kit from integy and pay like 10 for shipping. maybe use the extra money to get some spare parts, integy stocks almost everything for it
