Default Exceed Madfire 1/8 .21 buggy

I have been looking at this thing for the past week and i am thinking about getting myself one. I don't have much of any money but I can spend around this price range on nitrorcx.com they have it listed for $199

I'm wondering if this is a good car to have for a beginner in the hobby ( Did have that nitro sport XD that i recently wrecked down at the park ) so im looking to getting into the buggies.

Have any other suggestions or comments just say =)

Word of advice: Do not order anything that nitrorcx has!!! Bascially, those crap cars are chinese knockoffs with absolutitely no quality. And you cant even fix the bad parts, because the design of the cars are very lacking. Look into Losi, Associated, Kyosho, HPI, Traxxas, bascially anything except HSP, Exceed, Himoto, or Redcat.

EDIT: I just seen this in the F/S forums and thought you might like it: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...rtr-250-a.html. It is the 8ight RTR buggy (not 2.0) and it needs a new body and radio (you can use your traxxas radio)
Losi 8ight 1.5 ~ 8T ~ XXX Buggy ~ Mini-Baja

The o''le saying goes, pay me now, or pay me later, because you gonna pay me. "Pearl_414"
