Default Truggy Choices

Does anyone here have a Hpi Hellfire, A Tamiya Nitrage 5.2, or A Ofna mutilator? I was thinking about getting a truggy and im not sure which one would be the best in reliability, fun factor, starting, and maintenance so if any body has one of these vehicles some feedback would be great. thanks

I think a good truggy is the losi 8T. it is reliable, fun, and parts are farely easy to get for them. there not horrificly expensive but there worth the $500.00 for it.

I raced an ofna mutilator all year and seemed to be a good truggy. But it does need some up grades like cnc steering knuckles and some thing to start it because it is so ridicuosly tight brand new. we broke the recoil before we even got it fired up the first time. after that its an alright truggy but i dont think i would recomend buying the old verson of it. there is a new verson with c hubs like the jammin

I have been running the Hot Bodies Lightning Stadium Pro-R for about 6 months now and I love it. I am currently doing a long term test/review on the truggy right now and if you are looking for a good truggy on a budget get the Hot Bodies. You can get the Lightning Stadium Pro RTR for about $450 or you can get the Pro-R kit for about $450.

I would say the new HB truggy... HB lightning stadium 2 pro.
Its a great truggy and the price is fair too. And the durability of the parts are very good.... and HB customer service is good to help if you have any questions abou the product.

Take advice from someone who isn't sponsored or representing a specific rc company

Losi 8T would be a nice ride to go with, along with the Jammin truck.

I agree...if I were in the market for a truggy I would definitely be getting either an OCM or a Thunder Tiger ST-1 pro kit. Both are extremely affordable and I know first hand that the TT is extremely durable.

You're right, the whole point in being sponsored is to represent a company and try to sell more products but some people get a little carried away. I won't mention any names .

Jammin Mugen Losi kyosho....in no specific order...i would'nt trust a LSP as far as i could throw it....nor a Nitrage or a Mutilator...ive seen em all in action and imo they arent "Race bred" truggy's....there RTR level stuff that is Guarenteed to break the second u try and competitively race it....a Full out Race Set up truggy is gonna fetch at Least 1000$.
