ok i think im gona go with new off-road just cause thats what every one arround me has and there is no-one to mess arround with. plus i love off-road soo much. as i asked be4 whats best, moster truck, or buggy. i want a very durrable truck/buggy with LOTS of power and speed. also very upgratable. I also said this before but what the heck 700-800$ (US) thats for every thing not just rtr/kit.

P.S. if i didnt say this before im not gonna race except vs. freinds for fun.

with 1/18 at least with the BRP SC18, there wasn't really much work and the car hauled. Driving a friends 1/12 was quite fun in stock and didn't see him wrenching like I was with my TC. Cheaper too.


The Ravager looks like a great fun buggy with that nice Big Engine. Probably make a nice truggy too.

yeah 1/18 is a blast, those little cars are almost indestructible as well, plus it cheap, well comparitively. the big motor is fun, but doesn't seem quite as zippy as the .21, however when plowing up a hill it makes a big diff, my friend has a hyper 7 with a .21 and he was pretty quick on the flat stuff, but as soon as we woul rip up a big hill i could leave him in the dust, and my buggy is heavier. What do you have to do to create a truggy, is it basically just a buggy with monster truck tires?

imo buggy will beat any monster truck if set up right plus its way more durable so you will get more running time then your freinds with broken monster trucks lol

Its a true 8th scale racing truck.

They don't really make them, they distribute them for other companies.

If you are just meesing around i have to suggest the ravager, cause that what is ue it for and it is great, and i have no problems against my friends hyper 7 or mayhem. the .28 motor is a nice touch, it has so much power down low that you can pretty much get up anything, or if you set the suspension right, you can do wheelie's all the time, which i find lots of fun.
