the only cars cheaper are the agama, ae and tekno. under 700 msrp is right around where all the cars are without "team" discounts so whats the problem. like people that say xray and kyosho are expensive so they "save" $10 and buy an hb losi or AE and are constantly replacing worn out parts,

I completely agree as I have an Xray, plus no hop ups needed. In the blog Ryan had mentioned bringing the buggies to the US at one of the lowest price points. So my point is I will not be buying one as I am sure many others will not.

That engine you put in there is a nice throwback. Those GO's were awesome.

Default Review

I was excited to run my SBX.1 but after the problems started building the kit. I had to dremal the arms a big amount for them not to bined up. But apart from that it went together OK. First run out 4 laps into practice the car landed from a little kicker and pop that was the front arm snapped right at the place I thought it would where you put the screw through for the shock. After that the shock shafts kept bending very easy. The car did feel nice to drive after you bin the kit springs I used some mugem 1s the pistons seen to have the early xray problems where they swell and get stuck. Easy fix switched to some HB pistons and all ways good. I was really impressed with the drive train and how smooth the car was. In the end with proper support I'm sure it will be a strong brand.
