HI, I'm looking at getting into 1/8 buggies.We don't have a formal track for racing on at present, so this may help with your feedback. In Australia, I am able to purchase a PBS Pro rtr kit that has the 8p 2.7hp motor in it,fully built and radio installed.Like I say, it won't see serious competition, but any help with pro's or cons appreciated. I do have budget /time restraints so something like the mbx5p or special 2 is out of the question.Thanks
