I would suggest Tekno, but a "best" buggy and "cheap" are subjective at best.

That's a very general question. Do a little research on this site and make an educated decision that fits your budget. I have had great luck with Hobbywing and Trackstar electronics FWIW.

I would say a used pro kit buggy is the only way to go if your going racing. just bashing around get a ofna lx2e. Even if its a older kit like a mbx6 eco or something along those lines you will be better off since the durability and handling will be light years ahead of most rtr's.

+1 for a well maintained used mugen eco6. The stock setup is dialed. What this means to a newer racer is less frustration. I have a mugen eco6 and race it. I have no plans of purchasing a new vehicle. For electronics get a hobbywing Sct pro if u plan on running on 4s and get the programming card. I would try the SMC 1900 4 pole motor for 70 bux as well. Get SMC batteries and call it a day. I choose to run my mugen with two 2s batteries in series....sounds complicated but it is easy...requires one jumper wire that you make in five minutes.....or get one 4s pack... I have not broken anything on my car.

If open to used, you can find some good deals on Tekno EB48s in either .1 or .2 flavors and they are compatible with each other for upgrades. Heck I still run a version 1 with its updates and enjoy the vehicle.

For electronics, a common budget ESC I have seen used is the Hobbywing SCT Pro esc. for motor for new prices Vipers 1/8 motors are pretty cheap if they are still on sale direct. I like the 1900 from them and it can be usedin truggy too from what they told me when I asked.
