Default some advice

Hi all, I need some help.
I wanna do some good speed runs, but I got no car to do it. I owned a dm1 e but sold it on ebay last week, had a ofna buggy8 e, sold it yesterday, I own a gtv2E, bought the rear serpent shaft and al things I need to do the shaft mod but really I dont wanna spend too much replacing the f/r diffs, so I wil be selling it on ebay.
I got the neu 2200kv motor and the mamba monster 2 esc.
I think i will be buying a gtp2e. But someone told me that for top speed runs, the buggy lx1/2 e will be better because the ratio on the diffs is way better for top speed runs than on the on roads. I need some help from you guys the top speed clup freak so I can make a good buy.

Idk about the diffs... Never heard that, but for any onroad driving i would get the onroad car. It will be much more stable/ arrow dynamic at speed than a buggy

Seems like a lot of info in this thread about using this car for top speed runs, mostly late in the thread. Info on what bodies and tires ppl are using to hit over 100 mph. For $210 for the roller, its hard to beat this car. I'm even using this car for onroad asphalt racing, as the class isn't big enough or serious enough yet to justify the cost of a Serpent.
