Default New 1/8 scale buggy? - Ofna Ravager

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKBE6&P=0

Anyone have more info on this buggy? This was the first time I have seen this one and it looks particularly interesting.

RC Driver has some info on it. It does look like a 9.5 upgrade.

If it's better than the Ultra MBX Pro, then I would be interested. $360 USD looks like a good price for a RTR 1/8 scale.

oh wow! a FORCE .28. I know I can't wait to drive it
seriously, if you want an RTR buggy for cheap, pony up an extra $100 or so for a Mayhem. or get an XTM X-Terminator.
the X-T is tougher than the 9.5 could ever hope to be, and the engine is far superior to anything Force has ever pooped out.

Whoa whoa whoa hold up here a sec.

This is my first year racing 1/8th buggy, and I picked up a used 9.5 pro and it's held up to my newb driving skill just fine. It takes doubles and triples like a champ, has been cartwheeled numerous times, and run into the boards almost full throttle from both the front, side, and back. I have not broke a SINGLE part on this buggy, with the exception of a clutch spring.

Perhaps you could share your experience with the 9.5 you had, and put some proof behind your claims that this is not a durable buggy.

Yah I've got a 9.5 as well and it very tough, I as well have only broken a clutch spring! lol. I would say the 9.5 is definately a durable buggy.

The problem with those two is that my LHS doesn't carry parts for either one of them...period. Parts availability was the reason why I got rid of my MP-7.5 and was looking at OFNAs. It's either this or I really need to sit down and think if I can plop down $500 for the Jammin'.

Hold on there, I never said the 9.5 wasn't tough.
just not AS tough as the X-T. a guy I bash with has a 9.5, and his buggy gets torn up more often than mine doin more or less the same stuff...
plus, my LHS's don't carry Ofna buggy parts, but there's enough X-T parts at one of 'em to build a whole 'nuther X-T

Thats interesting..i would have thought parts availability would have been the opposite. I have never seen a XTM part at any track Ive ever been to.

Well, my both my local shops sell a buttload of X-terminators, Mammoths, X-cellerators, and X-factors, so they have to have XTM parts, lol.
Off topic, but what OS you runnin? I just finished buttoning up my new AD2, first actual race is july 3rd, has a TR in it.
BTW, i'd definitely go with the Jammin buggy. over any other buggy (but you'd buy an RTR, i'd buy a kit)
RTR I don't think you can beat the Mayhem's bang for the buck.

I got my OS from a guy who had it modded by RBmods. I think its actually just a CV with a very big aftermarekt head on it. I only bought it for about 3 reasons....faster than my fantom, 11-12 min. a tank, 185 deg. at that milage and power. Its amazing. I will modding every nitro engine I buy from here on out. BTW I just got a lightning RTR buggy.
