If you live in SA, why don't you look at the Caster from Razzor? He is very knowledgeable and helpful and I know he has parts, etc....

Thats your choice it depends on how you drive if you drive on the edge and dont crash alot the D8 if for you if you like to man handle your car and dont crash alot the Hyper 9 is for you.Now if you can powerslide and drive hard and crash just as hard get the Losi.

I'm going to say the d8! I just completed my first race with mine this past weekend and I was like a totally different driver! Jumps that I normally wouldve just roller over, I was able to jump and land with no issues at all! And no I haven't even been practicing, so it honestly had to be the d8!

D8 - Cheapest
8 2.0 - needs a loose driving style, and on the expensive side
H9 - looks like a 1/10 scale imo, but I don't know much about the car but the angle of the motor makes it hard to get to the rear drive shaft

mainly it's up to how much you want to spend

I'd say Losi because I drive Losi but that's being manufacture bias

Out of the box the Losi is a super loose rear end car. I only say this out of the box, with a little work it can change but I 'm saying this with my own experience

The Losi is definitely on the more expensive side, I mean it's a great buggy out of the box, but I've poured more and more money in it, but I guess that's just me. Compared to the other options it is definitely more expensive.

The Losi 8ight 2.0 is by far the best buggy (I'm sure this will be flamed ), and in my opinion, the rear end is crazy stable. Run the Truhe worlds set-up and you will be set. If it is still too loose for you, take some throttle out of your radio.

My vote goes for the Losi 2.0 there is a huge improvement from the 1.0 and the 1.0 is a lethal buggy in the right hands.

just do this build track in back yard by the one you dont want first then run it sell it by the next one run it sell it then by a losi and run it then you will know why i say losi didnt get chance at hyper 9 but d8 mbx6 ae zanma zmxb8 and oh yeah ran losi 1.0 till quit about year ago got back in tryed other stuff ended up back with losi 2.0 is the best for my style but all cars were within 1.5-2 seconds per lap of each other. good luck and as for expensive losi is not expensive thier parts are cheap and so is kit 500 plus shipping

The Losi is expensive as compared to what? Lets do the math.

Kyosho MP9 $769
Xray 808 $639
Losi 2.0B $529
Mugen MBX6 $529
AE RC8B $519
HB D8 $329

I guess I missed the expensive part of all the Race Worthy Buggies it's in the middle or the bottom depending how you look at it. If you take any Buggy out the box and expect it to be set for your driving style. Then this hobby is not for you!
