I have. Its equally as good as the buggy, the only problem is the class hit or miss locally.

I finally got to run both the buggy and truck this past week during practice. Everything went pretty well although I started off on the wrong tires for buggy and that cost me a front spindle 5 minutes after putting it on the track for the first time. Changed it out and put much better tires on and I was pretty satisfied with it. Again, I have no previous buggy experience so I have nothing to compare it to. I had to fiddle with my radio settings a little as I had WAY too much brake in the esc and I ended up turning down the steering servo speed as it was a little twitchy. By the end of the night I was staring to get some clean laps in. Not fast (second or 2 off the fast guys), but clean. Can't wait to run it again next week!!

OK I ordered my son his buggy for Christmas. Liked the write up Raul. He is excited for it. Have any of you guys broken anything yet? We will need to get some parts stocked up, I figured the norm front and rear arms.

Thanks Chris. Arms definitely won't be necessary.

I've broke an arm in a freak accident, but the buggy really is pretty tuff. Personally I don't care if the buggy is a tank I still like to have spares but I don't think you need multiples like some other brands might require.

I always keep a set of spare arms all around because one never knows what oddity will inflict damage on any car at any given moment.

The only thing I've broken was the ear on the transmission case but it seems it was just a freak occurrence. I will however be keeping spare gearboxes handy at all times.

Agreed, I broke on my 1st time out but has NEVER broke one again and I have been racing it for around 8 months now

The only must have spares are part number 66400046 which has the rear hubs, front castor block, and the steering block. Also and extra steering rack can't hurt (part number 66400306). If your running rear motor and in a cold environment you might want an extra rear motor trans case. Nice to haves that make the car almost bullet proof are 3mm motor plate and aluminum rear hubs.
