Thumbs up 1/8 e buggy rtr

Hi, im looking for a 1/8e buggy, but as im quite new to the hobby im not confident on building a kit.

I will be bashing and probably some casual races at the local track, i have been looking at the hong nor ultra lx2e and the kyosho inferno ve rs

can anyone give opinions on these buggies, and or some other good recommendations?

replies much appreciated

Hi the ofna is a tough and versatile buggy. It uses metric screws versus the kyosho using phillips. They are equally as fast. The Ofna will be the better bang for bucks. I would also look at the HPI trophy flux buggy it will more on the expensive side. That one has a higher quality motor esc included.
