well considering you're a pom have you thought about schumackers new buggy? it's called the swift pro 2 and it is the cheapest bugy i have seen on the net at $250 us and it looks like it has some good features like a 1 peice alloy brace at the rear, carbon fibre top deck machined towers and lay down steering servo.

it is shown in the pics with hudy type brown anodised towers but the rcmart link below shows the car with standard silver.

this link below seems to be the cheapest place that sells em.

yeah i think that most buggies really are all the same. the only thing stopping me from buying this buggy is that i have found that no shops carry spare parts. but considering it is half the price of almost all buggies you might as well buy 2 and have one as spares... if you can find spare parts for it on the net or a shop near where you live go for it! $250 us for a buggy with carbon parts is a bargain.
