i have seen the tq buggy in action, billy easton was driving it, he took care of jr mitch and ryan eckert and the rc8's with it at the regional race, he wasnt racing the truggy though, the buggy looks nice and reasonably priced, just wonder how long its gonna be around if it never really makes it to be really popular, i ended up getting an odonnell buggy and i am wondering how its gonna do in the long run myself

They are expensive but everything seems to be in this hobby. I've seen a few very well kept used one's selling on ebay for around $400 with some hopups. I'm actually selling one of my two XT8's but I'll be looking for $500 plus shipping due to all the hop ups (iss kit front and rear, dace hubs, and extended motor mount) that it has on it.

I'd like to put my 2 cents in and advise you to take a look at the Ofna (Hobao) Hyper ST Pro. That's what I got and I love it! Parts are readily available anywhere. It went together great. It comes with a one piece pipe. It a full blown race Kit that is adjustable, durable, fast as hell, and about $100 less than Losi, X-ray, Mugen, Kyosho, and Jammin. I have the Jammin .28 in it, and it rips up my track, and is right there, with all the $600+ truggies with the $400+ engines, and my total cost was $650 total!!!
nothing to see here................................

Dont waste your time or money, i think i have ran just about every truggy out, the Kyosho STRR is top notch man...durable as sin and performance is simply awesome.

Mugen is up there as well, its just outdated for whats out there as of right now.

Just get it over with...run the Kyosho lol

the Jamming X2 is a way better than the X1, the X2 steering and handling is top notch plus easy to get parts from just about every online store

The Cen truggy is a good rig. You will have to drop some money into it to be competitive above a sportsman level.

Mainly the things that need to be changed is the chassis. BCE makes a chassis so that you can run a smaller spur gear. You will need a few thing to make the conversion work. You will need Hot Bodies or Kyosho ring and pinion gears, Cen Matrix buggy braces, and radio tray and mounts.

Once you have converted the TR Arena, it is an awesome truggy.

You can save yoursely a few bucks and modify the chassis yourself like I did. I drilled out the stock FRE chassis to move the motor mounts over to run a smaller spur gear. I also drilled out the chassis to put on the buggy braces. I ran it like this for a few months until I was able to get a BCE chassis.
