Default I need advice!!!!!! Which to buy?

Hey im new to the site but have been into rc since i can remember with an old rc10gt tub chassis and os cvx .12 and so on, anyway i just got back into it after a long time and i got an electric rustler which is fine but i need nitro. ive been researching and i am trying not to go over 300$ i really want a kit but i guess for that price range im looking at an rtr, im all about st's so ive been looking at the new firestorm by hpi and of course the classic rc10gt2, also ive been looking at the ofna buggies like the hyper 7 tq and the ultra lx1, i tend to do mostly bashing rareley racing but im looking for something durable, fast and nimble. which of the four cars above is best and what others are available that im not looking at?!?! thanks in advance

If you are looking at the ofna's, the hyper 7 is a good starting buggy. They also have a new Picco buggy but I don't know much about it. CEN is excellent also.

If you want a truggy the the OFNA Truggy is good but a little more $. Cen also makes a good truggy. Robitronics also has a good one for beginners.


or better your local hobby shop.

DO NOT buy an Ofna LX-One. I have one and it's the worst RC mistake I've ever made.

Thanks for the info, i think im going to go with the hpi, ive been reading its got lot of power, my local shop carries lots of hpi parts, also im going to be driving it on some rough terrain and aparently the buggy doesnt have enough ground clearance to handle lots of rocks and such. The firestorm is also the cheapest i come in at 287 after shipping, fuel, bottle, glow starter, and extra plugs from tower

the Firestorm is also a 1/10 2wd Stadium truck....and would definatly Not take the rough stuff very well....compared to a 1/8 buggy it would be left in the dust.
