Default 1/8th Scale Buggy Shopping RTR

Hello,

In the market to purchase an 1/8th Scale RTR buggy. Just noticed there were a bunch to choose from. Not really looking to race, but looking to have some fun and need something reliable. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Brad

if you want somthing indestructable get an ofna hyper 7 pbs pcr edition. it sells for ~$530. it comes with the good chassis braces. also it comes with a starterbox and a glowignitor and a fuel bottle. I have aboused my and it has never broken a chassis part. i have had screws back out but that was my own fault. the only thing i have done to mine is put in a reciver pack and better radio and servos. i havn't even changed the shock oil in a year of running and it feels like the day i got it.

in terms of the buggly listed above. I wouldn't get that one cuz it could be a pos then you have a dud buggy on your hands which you can't get parts from because the company is bassid in alstrailia.

Default its cool!!!

they are new company in Australia, they are starting, i heard from one of the owner that they will get lots of parts in Australia, and its not that expensive.....also he has one of the top driver in Australia to drive the car and test the car......well the new car included everything but not the starter box....i think it will be an option to included that in.......should ask them about it....see if they offer the same thing or not....
