Here are the ( DONT ) vehicles.

1. Caster racing (YUCK)
2. Hellfire (yeehaw)
3. LSP (wtF?!)
4. Tamiya ()
5. A savage >_>
Lets see. Here in FL. I personally have seen 2 Losi 8ight buggies, 1 Mugen MBX5R sold to run the Caster ZX1-R after driving it while still owning the others and 1 ST-RR, 3 Mugen MBX5T's, 1 RC8Tand 1 Hyper ST Pro all sold the same way after driving the Caster Racing K8T. All lap time have improved over the previous cars too. So "yuck", I do not think so.

Now offering support for: Agama, Caster, Serpent, Mugen, HotBodies,VP PRO, Answer-RC and much more.

People who know what they are doing can win with anything. People new to racing, Like me, will lose with anything! Start with something cheep and durable. Don't matter what! learn how to drive, and tune, and set-up, then take it from there. There's no reason for you to crash/lose with a $1000 truggy
nothing to see here................................
